The Dehler 31 is a stylish fast cruiser combining race-winning performance with good cruising accommodation along with a modest draught. Although still well suited to club racing, 'Slippy' has also been optimised for cruising so has a Furlex headsail furling and a stackpack main. She is presented in good condition and has been regularly maintained by her current owners who are moving to a slightly larger cruising yacht and retiring from racing.
Viewing by appointment only through the Essex office on (01621) 785600.
