The exceptional sailing performance of the Dehler 47, along with the superb interior and layout of the Dehler 47 meant it beat off stiff competition from many other manufacturers to win the "European Yacht of the Year 2003" during the Düsseldorf boat show. Also praised were the truly innovative details found on the Dehler 47; The tender can be stowed away in space created by the transom flap, which also doubles as an extended boarding platform. The cabriolet system allows the sprayhood to be fully concealed when folded away and there is even an option to have the anchor retract into the bow-locker hydraulically, leaving a completely open bow area. Below decks the Dehler 47 is in a class of her own. The high quality cherry wood interior, rounded style cupboards, well appointed galley and large luxurious saloon are naturally outstanding. There are even two luxuriously equipped heads, one with a separate enclosed shower area. The Dehler 47 represents the pinnacle of all that is Dehler, and you can be proud in the knowledge that there is no other boat out there quite like her.
