The Dehler Optima 101 is a well designed and built racer/cruiser with German precision. So popular in Europe that over 700 have been built. Good looking, easily handled, well balanced, sturdy, and quite fast. She is a rewarding boat to sail offering good performance in a wide range of conditions, as well as nice accommodations. As a racer cruiser she is successful at both.

The fractional rig�s large main with 2 reefs, is a great set up for easy shorthanded or single-handed sailing. Zelda has sailed in several (GLSS) Great Lakes single-handed events, of over 300 nm.

Equipped with a Yanmar 18HP Diesel engine, solar panel and charger, Raymarine auto pilot, AIS, MMSI number, and 2 AGM batteries. Only three year old winter cover!
