Dehler Yachts presented by JK3 Nautical Enterprises:
It's always a hard job to find the right balance between performance and cruising yacht design. Finding the right head room, the right accomodations, and many more considerations to make cruising more comfortable - all the while creating a design that will win races and seasons - is no easy task. Very few designers and builders have been capable of producing such yachts. Dehler have proven worthy of the task with their range of yachts from the Dehler 46, Dehler 38, and the all new Dehler 42, to the D29, D32 and D35 SQ - all available from JK3 Nautical Enterprises.
JK3 Nautical Enterprises is thrilled to present this iconic brand to the Western USA (including Hawaii) and Mexico. We are fully equipped, with offices in San Diego, Newport Beach, San Francisco, and Seattle. Contact us to discuss Dehler's tremendous lineup of performance cruisers today.

"I recently took delivery of the first Dehler 46 in North America and was able to sail her on the San Francisco Bay in typically conditions, 20-25knts, two to four foot chop, swirling currents and challenging conditions. She sailed beautifully, tracking through the choppy bay going upwind in 17-20knts of breeze with authority yet comfortable enough for my wife, her mom and a friend and my two children. As the breeze built, I single handed the reefing process without any issues and she continued to track up wind efficiently.
We had an opportunity to get out of the wind behind Angel Island to drop the mainsail with the aid of a Dutchman flaking system and I furl the jib with ease. I again single handed the docking process and with a slight adjustment for wind and current, brought her in for a smooth landing.
The Dehler 46 received many compliments while at the dock as we prepared for the downwind leg home. We pulled away from the dock with ease and set a full main and jib. Most of the ride home was a beam reach to a reach in 20-25knts of breeze and the boat surfed down the waves and hit 9.5knts many times. At all times the DehIer felt under control except for one gust around 27knts, she wanted to round up. I let the main out while my wife was driving and the Dehler immediately dug in and surfed down a wave. The family gave the new Sea Wolf the following ratings:
Below Deck: A+
Above Deck: A+
Comfort and Safety: A+
Sailing Ability in the SF Bay: A+
Handling under power: A
Handing unders sail A+++
JK3 Customer Service: A+
I came away from that day on San Francisco Bay believing that I finally found a boat that is exhilarating to sail, is designed well, has high quality finishes and my wife loves the interior. I have owned a few J Boats and an 11metre over my 25 years of sailing and by far, Carl Dehler got it right with the Dehler 46. My only regret was not getting the carbon rig and larger sails!
All of this would not have been possible without the high level of customer service that I received from Diego Gomez with JK3 Yachts. His deep knowledge about sailing and the Dehler product is impressive and I credit Jeff Brown for building such a strong team in Northern California.
Thank you for designing, building and supporting a beautiful yacht."

"The Dehler 38 is an amazing boat. We hit 9.5 on a broad reach Sunday with winds about 15 true. The boat kept its feet during all the gusts above that. The German engineering is apparent through out the boat. Everybody that has seen it and sailed it are amazed.
I appreciate the professionalism of your company. I can't imagine having gone through this process without the fantastic assistance of Jon. He made a complex process seamless and easy. His concern for customer satisfaction is unparalleled
Enclosed a picture of the Dehler logo I had the iron worker make into both my front fence gates. I hope you can forward them on to Germany.
We find something new every day on the boat and I keep Jon informed so ideas can be sent back to the factory"
