|Pipedream is a Dehler 34 listed exclusively for sale with YOTI on Sydney Harbour.
Launched new in 1992, Pipedream presents like a much newer yacht. Her current condition is a credit to her owners and rarely do we see a vessel of this vintage in this condition. The Dehler 34 represents an era of yacht building simply not replicated in most of today's production brands. The Dehler 34 has succeeded in welding an excellent design mix to produce a genuine racer / cruiser. A good sized cockpit features the mainsheet easily reached by the helm, adequate room for a croozy lunch while at anchor (using the electric anchor winch), good access to the water via a stainless swim ladder and a heap of storage. A dodger is included which is easily folded down plus there is a three part boom tent (new 2016). A solid sail wardrobe is included plus running gear is ready to accommodate a kite.
Down below we see an interior designed for function, comfort and using materials with longevity in mind (just enough wood). This is a space that has been maintained the way it should. Windows, sea-cocks, furniture lining - all replaced when needed. The upholstery is surprisingly original but as commented on in the 2013 survey is in 'excellent condition' and still features the Dehler insignia on the backing. Pipedream is a two cabin yacht with a functional galley, generous nav station, a modern and fully enclosed head and comfortable saloon seating around a folding dining table.
