The Dehler 34 has been widely acclaimed and in competition form can be successfully campaigned but in standard format, they are a great fast cruiser. She is another striking design from Judel/Vrolijk with up to the minute styling and sporty characteristics. On deck, she offers well-placed control lines; a German main sheeting system and self-tailing winches make adjustment of everything quick and easy. You can easily race this boat with a small crew and still be competitive against bigger boats.
The Dehler 34 interior is innovative, distinctive and uncluttered. Curved lockers line the main saloon, which features a chart table and separate heads/shower to port with an L shaped galley to starboard. For sleeping accommodation, she offers a forward double cabin and an aft cabin to starboard with two extra berths in the saloon. KATIANA has been lightly used since new and is therefore in excellent condition throughout. She had several optional extras added at build including an upgraded engine, B&G Navigation equipment and Elvstrom sails plus much more!
We have always had 45 footers, and after a break from sailing (due to a lack of time), we decided to get a yacht we could just enjoy as a couple. She is a delight to sail, always light and ultra-responsive slipping very easily through the water. It is great fun keeping up with bigger boats and beating them through the tacks. Her build quality is excellent, definitely a cut above the average boat. The layout is well thought out and the lazarette means plenty of storage for dinghy, paddleboards, etc. However, friends and family all want to come sailing again, and so we now need to go back to something bigger…
