A well kept example of the Dehler 33 Classic, highly regarded for their fast and seakindly performance. Well suited to fast passage making, they have a light steady helm that is particularly easy to sail shorthanded. Sapphire is a great example of her class and has a good inventory including diesel heating, Gori 2-blade folding propeller and a large sail wardrobe. She has been cruised and successfully raced on the East Coast by her current owner, with a 2017 IRC endorsed handicap of 0.972.
