Broker's Comments

Great family race cruiser and there are not many of these for sale in the UK so I am expecting lots of interest.
This Dehler 38 has a host of gadgets and electronics to keep anyone happy both above and below the decks. Heaps of space with 8 berths so ideal for a family or for a team of racers ready for a few days in battle.
She has had numerous works carried out this year including a copper coat that has only had one season.
New toilets, LED lighting , electrical review and some upholstery works. Liferaft serviced regularly
Rudder bearings replaced and new Gearbox in 2011 so real value for money.
I dont expect her to be around for long so call me to arrange an early viewing.
