DEHLER 30 one design BUILD PROGRESS
06.09.2019 - Test sail on the Mediterranean Sea
This is the moment everyone has been waiting for! With a small team of experts from Quantum Sails, Speed Sailing and HanseYachts AG we went out to the Mediterranean for the first test sail! The months of development and yacht construction are now paying off. Top speed, sailing performance and behaviour in the water are tested under tension. Our yacht exceeded all expectations and once again made us enthusiastic! The first pictures from the test can be found in our video gallery.
05.09.2019 - Rigging for the world premiere
Even without water under the keel the maiden trip is done. Around 1650 road kilometres on a special transport are behind our yacht as she arrives at the French Mediterranean coast. Now the first great event is near: the world premiere at one of the biggest yacht shows, the Cannes Yachting Festival! But before it's time to rig up! By crane the mast is put up and the boom is assembled. The enthusiasm is great when the jib and mainsail are set for the first time. The team of Quantum Sails and Speed Sailing trim the new wardrobe and pull all sheets, halyards and lines to their place. We are finally ready to go!
21.08.2019 - First Water Test
It's time to touch the water! After months of development and construction the Dehler 30 one design was launched into her element. The test drive proved that our racer-cruiser is ready for its World Premiere at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival.
16.08.2019 - Installation of deck fittings
While the interior finishing is in progresses, our yacht is equipped from the outside. Together with Speed Sailing, the product manager and the specialists from the HanseYachts AG, the position of the fittings is carefully checked for function. The running rigging, the navigation electronics and the steering are tested again. Finally the hull appears in its sporty honeycomb from outside.
06.08.2019 - Interior finishing
Now it's getting cosy! With the equipment below deck the ideas from the Mock-Up get realized. The multifunctional saloon, the lockable lavatory, the flexible pantry and the aft cabins are equipped step by step. The innovative mesh fabric, which creates a pleasant atmosphere, serves as the wall panel. Clever details complete the practical interior.
23.07.2019 - The „wedding“ of deck and hull
What belongs together comes together. The hull and the deck get united. Our first yacht is almost complete, at least externally. The team of the "Yacht" joined us for the special moment of the "wedding". All large GFK-modules like the pantry, the water ballast tank or the lavatory module are already integrated. The further interior finishing below deck will show what the room design will actually look like.
05.07.2019 - Hull Demoulding
Cosy and sporty at once – now the interior takes shape. All bulkheads and wall elements are fitted precisely into the hull. The basis for the flexible cabin layout is set. Then the time has come! The glossy white hull is carefully removed from the mould and reveals its full sportiness. Now the racer-cruiser is ready for the interior construction and we are just a few steps away until the yacht is finished.
12.06.2019 - Hull Construction
The hull is built with a state-of-the-art process to join the hull layers. This is done by a vacuum infusion process. First accurately sized glass-fibre matting and foam cores are inserted dryly into the mould. After all air has been drawn off, resin is sucked into the laminate by vacuum pressure via carefully placed tubing. This technique delivers just the right amount of resin to every inch – without voids, dry or over-wetted spots. Thus a high-strength and light laminate without air inclusions is created. Due to this building method the racer-cruiser benefits from less weight.
15.05.2019 - The Yacht Magazine on the set of the Dehler 30 one Design
For two days, the film team from Yacht magazine documented progress in the on-going build of the new Dehler 30 one design. Both journalists followed key stages of the development for the detailed film about designing and building this racer-cruiser. In addition to an interview with Judel/Vrolijk & Co. on interior design, the main focus was on building the tooling. The visit was crowned by the delivery of the milled deckplug, which was keenly awaited by the experts. Karl Dehler and Oliver Schmidt-Rybandt from Speed Sailing carefully checked the position of the high-quality deck fittings. We are already looking forward to Part 1 of the exciting film series!
11.04.2019 - Demoulding
Now it’s getting exciting! At the final step the form is strengthened by an outer stabilising steel frame. The form is then carefully demoulded from the plug. The result is a negative mould which creates the basis for the lamination of the hulls of the Dehler 30 one design.
29.03.2019 - Mould Construction
To ensure a smooth demoulding of the form the plug is waxed at the first step. Subsequently, the mould is built layer by layer in a sandwich procedure. It all starts with a 0.7 mm gel coat overlay. Handcrafted the GFK experts laminate multiple rows of resin and glass fibre mats until the desired wall thickness is reached. Finally, the outer surface is built out of a 25 mm glued balsa wood as well as multiple layers of glass fibre.
13.03.2019 - Grinding and Polishing
Handcrafted the plug is grinded gradually with an increasing grain size. After the polishing the impressive form shines in black high gloss and gives a first full-size impression of the sportive 30 feet offshore Racing-Yacht. This flawless surface is the basis for the future smooth hull of the Dehler 30 one design.
05.03.2019 - Plug Milling
Finally there is something physical. Numerous construction meetings, flow analysis on the computer, dimension optimizations and repetitive feeding of the design applicationshave taken place to get to this point. 0 becomes 1 and the real shape is formed. Overnight, the 5-axis milling unit is working its way through the block out of foam and very soon we get a first impression of the real proportions.
22.02.2019 - Plug Completion
The experts of the HanseYachts AG apply a special milling paste on the milled plug. Subsequently the 5-axis milling unit brings the form to its final size and works out smallest elements in finest engineering.
15.01.2019 - First Mock-Up
From the initial idea of the Dehler 30 one design a first physical model is developed. The unique interior is taking its shape. Dr. Jens Gerhardt, CEO of the HanseYachts AG, Matthias Bröker, Naval Architect of judel/vrolijk & co. and Stephan Eigendorf, Head of Polymer Technology at HanseYachts AG test the first sense of space full of expectations.

Liferaft stowage – Lid up and it’s ready
The liferaft. Nobody wants to use it but everyone wants to know it will work flawlessly if deployed. All crewmembers must be able to release and activate the liferaft in all conditions and without help.
When it comes to safety, we leave nothing to chance. With a dedicated storage space at the stern, the liferaft couldn’t be easier to access. Just a few simple steps and it is ready for use.
Twin rudder and lead keel – a lateral plan that doesn’t compromise
The Dehler 30 one design is also engineered for top performance below the waterline. The uncompromising lateral plan includes a 2.2m-deep T-keel with lead bulb and twin rudders.
The composite keel consists of two segments: the upper part is formed of a hollow, extruded aluminium fin. Bolted beneath that is a streamlined lead bulb which puts 900kg at the deepest point of the keel for maximum efficiency. And the result? Our lightest ever fin, whose connecting webs allow flexion for great strength and correspondingly low weight. The lead bulb guarantees a high righting moment and tremendous speed potential.
Double is better: twin rudders are much more stable. Even at high speed, and especially when the boat surfs, there is always a rudder in the water to ensure full control. And when the lee rudder is fully immersed, you reduce the wetted area to a minimum.
Cockpit stowage – Everything in the locker
As racers know, storage space in the cockpit can be in seriously short supply when you’re cruising. We want to change that. The locker situated behind the steering linkage is watertight and secured by a transparent deck hatch.
Instrument Rack – The security centre
The instrument rack is the be-all and end-all for safety on board: at the stern, it carries all the safety and communication gear.
In an emergency, seconds often count. That's why at Dehler we rigorously combine technical innovations with maximum safety. Both lifebuoy and Epirb can be reached and activated with simple movements. Positioning aft above the transom ensures the best view and maximum coverage of the sky for SatNav / satellite communication.
Warm anti-slip in the cockpit - Safety can also be comfortable
Who hasn’t suffered bruises and numb legs while sailing? We have now developed a remedy: soft antislip patches on the cockpit benches and the cockpit sole between the traveller and the companionway. The insulating properties of these patches stops you from chilling down during long passages seated. It should turn a nap during the off-watch into a near spa experience!
Main sheet with 4:1 and 16:1 purchase – The accelerator
Perfect power transmission in every situation. The choice of coarse or fine trim on board optimises handling during manoeuvres.
4:1 is best when it comes to speed in the turn. Need strength or sensitivity? Then the fine tuning possible through the 16:1 purchase comes into play. Especially useful for precise trim in the fathead main to build up pressure, or to spill wind in the gusts.
External helm system - Full access and optimal control
Good technology shouldn’t be hidden. The helm system of the Dehler 30 one design is all above the deck. Everything at a glance and easily accessible - this is how to keep repairs and maintenance simple.
Central tiller steering makes efficient use of space, with short routes and the easiest handover to another crew member. Whether alone or crewed, the boat is easy to manoeuvre. Fast, safe and effective - an unbeatable combination.
Adjustable footrests – Lock it down so you don’t lose it!
It is often little things that make the difference between victory and defeat. Individually adjustable foot rests for the helmsman offer optimal support at any time, in any conditions. Better ergonomics keep you more comfortable so you can stay on the helm longer, stay focused and above all, stay bang on course. Just become one with the boat.
Dehler Stealth Drive – Streamlined wonder
A drive concept that only comes to the fore when needed. For this purpose, we pair a small diesel engine (10 hp) with a retractable shaft, which is controlled by a lever in the cockpit. This new drive concept is typically Dehler: designed for mass production and easy maintenance. The Dehler Stealth Drive - a true Dehler innovation with great impact.
To use the engine, a simple pull on the lever is enough: the drive train folds down and the boat is ready to go under power. When folded, the shaft and prop tuck up inside the hull, hermetically sealed behind a cover. No water resistance and no chance that nets, seaweed or other foreign objects could tangle the prop and slow you down. Since no stern gear is being hauled through the water when sailing, we can even spec a fixed propeller with higher efficiency than a folding prop. A fixed prop on a raceboat of this calibre? It seems wrong, but we’ve found a way to do it! *
* Connoisseurs know: Dehlers are delivered as standard with a folding propeller. Using this proprietary system, we can now deliver the first Dehler with a fixed-pitch propeller.
Integrated bulkhead instruments - Everything at a glance
Technology is an absolute given on board these days. Whether it’s a multifunction display or a simple chartplotter; a digital compass or autopilot with remote control - everything is monitored and controlled from the coachroof bulkhead. All the key data for sail trim and navigation is displayed here. Everything available at a glance and within arm’s reach.
Sliding dodger with 3D window - Keep an eye out
Everything in sight at all times. The sliding dodger with curved 3D window offers a perfect 360-degree view of the water, deck and especially rigging – all from the protected companionway. Out of the wind and weather, it offers shelter and reliable cover, without cutting contact with the outside world.
A pleasant side effect: more headroom and natural light in the companionway.
Category A Offshore – Sailing without limits
The Dehler 30 one design is uncompromising. Thanks to its high-quality composite build, the boat has great structural strength, but displaces just 2.8 tonnes. It will prove itself in offshore and coastal regattas.
The easy-to-trim monolithic carbon rig and its aluminium boom extend to the maximum length allowed in category A. And with its deck-stepped mast, there is no possibility of water leaking below. So there is nothing to stop the boat competing in regattas open only to category A yachts.
Double-handed – Optimised for small crews
This high performance offshore one design is optimised for shorthanded crews. Here, the 9.14m length and 3.25m beam of the Dehler 30 one design sets new standards and delivers the perfect boat to match the growing passion for double-handed racing.
Our focus on deck has been ease of handling and an efficient layout for the crew to work together. The simple-to-use 200-litre ballast tanks provide additional stability for small crews. One-up or with crew, the best possible trim is always guaranteed.
Railing in black - Sexy security
Pulpit, pushpit and stanchions in black. Why? Not only does it look pretty damn good, supporting the overall style of the boat, it also eliminates that distracting gleam which can take your mind off the essential: winning the race!
Serial number in the deck - Tell us who you are
Especially on long passages, conditions can be rough. We say Safety First. Set into the deck, a soft, non-slip neoprene patch provides additional support when crew are working on the foredeck.
The patch also bears the hull number in large digits. This is a common feature in many offshore classes, ensuring the boat can be identified from the air.
Hull shape - Ready to race
Even at first glance, it is clear: from the transom to the bowsprit, this is 10.30m of pure racing DNA. The long, straight hull with pronounced chines aft is vacuum infused in E-glass, serving to increase the dimensional stability and visibility on the water. The sheer stern has the benefit of minimising the wetted area of the lateral plan and keeping the boat stable at speed. And to top it all off: a moderate scow bow, which generates dynamic buoyancy while surfing despite the steep ends. It allows the bow to cut through cross-seas with minimal resistance.
The hull is fitted with the latest version of the Dehler Carbon Cage, which evenly distributes hull loading across its high-strength structure. The result: convincing rigidity with the lowest possible weight. The Dehler 30 one design converts all forces into maximum performance.
Bowsprit with bobstay – Always a nose ahead
The Dehler 30 one design is equipped with a fixed full-carbon bowsprit. The bobstay prevents the bowsprit from bending under shock loads when using the Gennaker or Code Zero, so all the pressure is converted to speed.
When cruising or manoeuvring in a tightly-packed harbour, the bowsprit can be easily removed and later replaced.

Aft cabins – Make the most of a broad stern
Through the aft bulkhead, you reach the aft cabins on each side. The berths measure a generous 2m long by 1.1m wide at the head, tapering to 80cm, so you will find everything necessary for a peaceful night’s rest or a quick nap on the windward leg of the race. The inside of the hull is lined with a modern mesh material, so you can lean comfortably against it. Smaller belongings find a home behind the fiddle on the shelf; larger ones can be stowed under the bunk cushions. Functional, yet comfortable.
Engine compartment - Direct access
Between the two aft berths and the companionway is the technical space, accessible from both sides. From here, the engine and the seawater valve are easy to maintain. The area between the bunks and above the Dehler Stealth Drive Tunnel is not wasted, either. Here practical, optional transport boxes provide space for personal items. Everything sorted thematically in easy reach.
Electric Panel - The communications centre
Keep an eye on everything, even below decks. From VHF radio to battery management; switchboard and circuit breakers to mobile phone chargers (12v and USB ports), all wiring comes back to here.
Whether it’s entertainment in port or hard facts on the high seas, the electric panel integrated into the bulkhead provides the perfect overview.
Lightweight GRP sandwich bulkheads - Less is more
The lightweight construction concept of the Dehler 30 one design doesn’t stop at the bulkheads. Consistency down to the smallest detail. The E-glass sandwich bulkheads offer maximum strength with low weight. Rig loading from the deck-stepped mast is optimally transferred to the keel section. Another advantage: unlike the traditional wooden core, the foam core hardly absorbs any water.
Storage shelf with internal storage space
Order is half of life - especially below decks. A lightweight shelf with internal storage offers enough space for the essentials. Safe and compact, various items can be stored.
Integrated companionway stowage - For all your stuff
On the Dehler 30 one design, even the smallest space is used efficiently. An integrated storage space on the companionway is used to stow small items that need to be quickly and easily accessible. Things like torches, handheld VHF, sunglasses etc
Anti-slip flooring - High-tech carpet
All floor areas between the companionway and the forepeak are designed with the same anti-slip material as on deck. This not only minimises the formation of condensation, but ensures a secure footing and underlines the warmth of the space.
Freshwater tank – A real lightweight
Everyday life aboard requires fresh running water. That’s why we’ve equipped the boat with a lightweight flexible tank and an economical, manual foot pump. Fresh water can be filled directly from the deck and the tank is placed centrally, close to the boat’s centre of gravity.
Galley - Small but flexible
True comfort only comes with a well-equipped galley. Whether chilled drinks or hot snacks, everything is taken care of. The Eno gas stove with piezoelectric ignition comes with a saucepan holder. On the right of the work surface with its handrail, there is a recess for standard-sized coolers, and a 12V socket. There’s a small sink with a flexible tap and foot pump. A versatile, sliding chopping board is also part of the standard equipment, covering either a cooker or sink. There is plenty of storage space in the galley: textile zippered bags are ample for food and kitchen utensils.
Separable heads - A little luxury with little effort
Some things can’t be avoided. So that friends remain friends, there is a simple toilet solution from the aircraft industry. A lightweight fabric screen folds out on flexible hinges to separate the heads from the saloon and create some privacy. Preserve your dignity even with a larger crew on long passages.
The manual toilet is equipped with a blackwater tank and deck pump-out. Simple and clean.
Saloon - Performance without comfort? Never!
We don’t believe that comfort and powerful performance in a boat need be mutually exclusive. The Dehler 30 one design brilliantly combines clear performance features with a feel-good factor. So the open bulkheads create a bright, generous volume while at the same time saving weight. Lightweight technical materials in warm, natural tones create a surprisingly large sense of space for a boat of its size.
Lithium ion batteries - The power bank
For the first time on a Dehler boat, we are using super-light lithium-ion batteries. Installed at the lowest point of the hull, they are as weight-neutral as possible. Battery management technology is built in, and 70A alternators ensure fast charging. Lithium-ion batteries are also low maintenance and stable.
Fabric-lined hull - High-tech from the fashion world
Each cabin sports a fabric lining. In keeping with the yacht’s sporty character, we rely on a well-proven material from the sporting world to create a sense of coziness. Fashionable mesh fabric is particularly durable, stretchy and therefore ideally suited for padding the inner hull.
Moulded wooden saloon seating - Ergonomics below deck
Switch from cruising to racing mode at a stroke. Even below, the Dehler 30 one design is a master of both worlds. The saloon benches made of waterproof, real oak combine ergonomics and stability. They invite the crew to sit comfortably together or, when folded up for racing, provide ample storage space. For more comfort, the padding from the sides of the forward cabin transforms into the upholstery of the salon bench. Robust, water-repellent and easy to clean.
Table - Foldable multifunctionality
Two in one. A centrally placed bracket acts as a firm handrail and at the same time the base of the hinged table.
Large double focsle berth - play area or sail locker
Depending on requirements, the boat's great versatility once again shows itself in the forepeak. As in the saloon, a few steps are enough to switch between sport mode and cruising mode. When the berths are folded up, there is direct access to the inspection hatch of the collision bulkhead, and lots of extra storage space for sails. When cruising, the berth offers accommodation for two, with its 2.02m length and 1.8m width, tapering to 0.65m at the foot. Like the saloon, the cabin sides are lined with mesh fabric.
Collision bulkhead - Pure safety
Water ingress following a collision is a nightmare for any boatowner. To prevent the boat from flooding and to ensure the safety of the crew, the bow area is hermetically separated from the rest of the boat. A watertight inspection hatch allows maintenance and inspection of the forestay attachment.

One Design from Germany - "Comfort helps to win"
What began in 1977 as a gesture of defiance was decisive for German boatbuilding. It laid the foundation for a decade-long history in serial one-design production, ‘Made in Germany’. Even then, founder Willi Dehler did not accept that race boats should have just one purpose: to sail regattas. He had more in mind. His vision - race boats with creature comforts.
It started with the legendary Sprinta Sport. A small cabin cruiser with real regatta ambitions, she was considered the first of a new cruiser-racer class, which became successful in the Quarter Tonne division of the IOR system. Through the use of the latest materials and high-strength components, more common on larger boats, Dehler already positioned itself as a pioneer in production boatbuilding. Some 500 boats were built and sailed intensively.
Naturally, Dehler followed up on this success with bigger one designs. The db1 came out in 1980 - a serial Three-Quarter tonner. It was already clear that Dehlers not only sailed very well, but also offered comfortable living. Dehler finally won a world championship title with the db2.
After a long interlude, the new Dehler 30 one design marks a return to the original idea behind her successful predecessors: to create a performance boat that is also suitable for cruising. She embodies an unprecedented combination of function and comfort. Every detail of the boat is geared towards maximum performance, but without sacrificing comfort: from cruiser-racer to racer-cruiser.
This enormously successful first cabin-cruiser class, which also distinguished itself in the IOR Quarter Tonne division, was much used for cruising. Some 500 boats were built with the goal: class instead of formula.
First series-built, Three-Quarter Tonne one design, which lead to international success. Below decks, she was fully equipped, while on deck she had an innovative layout for sporty sailing and easy handling.
Dehler 30 one design
Our new development is a progressive racer-cruiser with true Dehler performance genes. The Dehler 30 one design is an uncompromising double-handed offshore boat designed for maximum performance with the highest possible level of comfort.
DEHLER 30 one design CONFIGURATOR
Dehler yachts are boats for individualists. All the same, the Dehler 30 one design already leaves our shipyard with the highest level of equipment as standard. Features include a carbon mast, bowsprit, twin rudders, composite aluminium-lead keel, Dehler Carbon Cage and, for the first time, the Dehler Stealth Drive. Use our configurator to personalise your Dehler 30 one design. From new colour options to extra sails, design your boat according to your own individual wishes.Start now
