We love the striking lines of the new Dehler 42. Judel/Vrolijk’s latest masterpiece has similar breathtaking curves to the hugely successful Dehler 38 and 46. Sleek, dynamic and daring, the 42 is a fusion of performance styling and outstanding comfort.

Quality is the hallmark of Dehler yachts. The quality starts with the design… and transcends into the build. The hull is formed from vacuum infused vinylester hull with foam core. Floor beams are glued and laminated into the hull to distribute mast and keel forces. And supporting bulkheads are bonded to the hull.

You can customise the new Dehler 42 to suit your lifestyle. Choose from a beautiful teak deck with large bathing platform or opt for the sports version to carry less weight for performance sailing.

“Following the new established design lines, the Dehler 42 offers a well-balanced ratio between cruising comfort and swift performance. The new window line identifies her as a Dehler even from far distance. The true strength lies in her versatility. Be it as an upgrade from no compromise cruiser to an outstanding fast competitor or vice versa. The Dehler 42 is the perfect platform for fast sailing with a reasonable rating.”

It’s never easy to design the interior of a performance yacht… the big cockpit and slim racing hull shape mean there’s less interior space for the designers to work with. With the Dehler 42 however, Judel/Vrolijk have done a wonderful job and penned a performance yacht you can cruise in comfort. They have followed on from the success of the Dehler 38 and 46 creating the perfect balance of between comfort and performance.

The interior feels bright and spacious thanks to generous side windows and opening deck hatches. This creates exceptional ventilation below deck.


Cruising families or a performance racing crew have plenty of room, with up to three generous cabins and up to two comfortable wet areas. The patented “Uni-door” solution in the wet area means you can use one door to separate the entire WC area from the saloon, or swivel to separate the wash basin area from the toilet and shower. All cabins are equipped with generous berths and impressive storage.

As you expect from Dehler, the quality of the finish is superb. And you can design the interior to your taste, with a variety of choices for floorings, furniture wood, upholstery and galley worktops.


Check out this brand new video of the new Dehler 42 as she hits the water for the first time!

She is sleek, dynamic and daring…in fact she’s everything we expected and more!

If performance sailing in pure comfort is your thing…look no further!

Andi Robertson tests and reviews the new Dehler 42 in Palma, Mallorca for the UK’s ‘Yacht and Yachting’ magazine.

“Launched at Dusseldorf’s Boot this year, the new Dehler 42 follows the 38 and the 46 as the third model update of the four strong line-up for the German marque which has a proud history of producing racer-cruisers. The 42 holds true to the new look of the family lineage, a very sleek hull form, new distinctive deck and window line, subtle slender hull windows and big, flat transom. It is as usual from the Judel/Vrolijk design house…
