Ric Hawkins

Dehler brand manager Ric Hawkins skippered his first yacht at age 15 and has never strayed far from the water since.

He’s been involved in almost every international sailing regatta and represented Australia in Admiral’s Cups, from dinghies up to high performance yachts.

In Ric’s words

“Dehlers are fantastic performance yachts with the best interiors you’ll find on any production racing yacht. In my role, I’m part of a team helping our customers find the right yacht for them.

It’s not just a sale, I’m there for the life of the ownership”.

If you want to achieve great things in racing or just set your Dehler up for comfortable, fast cruising… Ric will help you make it happen!

Dom Lowe

Dom Lowe is Team Windcraft’s New Zealand manager. With many years of experience and multiple global boat shows under his belt, Dom was offered his dream job by Peter Hrones in 2011.

For Dom as well as loving the Dehler Brand – it’s also about the people. He loves introducing buyers to their new lifestyle and enjoys lasting relationships with new owners, often joining them for a day of racing or cruising.

“There is nothing like representing a product that you genuinely believe in and that you are genuinely proud of.  Put this together with one of the most beautiful and pristine marine playgrounds in the world and you have a Stella combination.

Meeting new prospective Dehler clients is very exciting… I know what a fantastic life changing journey they are about to start out on!”

As a proud member of the Windcraft team, Dom is impressed by the ethical and positive ethos of the company.

‘Windcraft have incredible integrity and do things right or not at all. There’s no corner cutting or penny pinching.’
