Sweet… Dehler 30OD

Kul att någon försöker göra en ren shorthandedracer.

Specen och layouten ser bra ut, men som vi alla vet så är det andra faktorer som avgör om en båt med fokus på entypsracing lyckas eller inte. Och budgeten för att köra en seriös OD-satsning skall man inte underskatta…

Som jag skrev när vi gissade på designen nedan, så tror jag detta kan vara en positionering inför OS, där man flaggat för en mixed offshoreklass i framtida spel, där en båt som den här, Figaro 3 eller nåt från Seascape skulle passa perfekt. Fast då gäller det att bygga moment internationellt.

Många innovativa intyeriörlösningar också. Här blir det också tydligt att det är en racebåt…

Our new Dehler 30 OD is the first production boat, we developed for this brand, that is designed only with speed and performance in mind. All other aspects such as interior volume, headroom and comfort have been compromised to achieve this.

Designwise it was the intention to follow current single- and double-handed raceboat design trends, but with a maior difference in allround performance. Analyzing current racing conditions, especially all over Europe, it became evident, that many of the racing is done in lighter winds, and – that good upwind performance still is neccessary to win races. Thus we sacrified the pure downwind reaching performance slightly (you get nothing for free !) and gained back allround and light wind power. By the use of water ballast, performance is increased in short handed mode, whereas in crewed mode with an intended crew of four, this additional stability feature is not in use.

In this combination, we think the boat is unique and will satisfy the single- and double hand minded racing sailers as well as the ambitions of the more conventional race course oriented crews.

Because we left some room for interior and also came up with some nice under deck design ideas, the boat might also attract for sporty weekend cruising or as a high performance daysailer. This is not to underestimate, because it helps to create fleets and keep a good resale value.
