Broker's Comments

Based on the DB-2 IOR 3/4 ton racer this example of a Dehler Optima 101 is quite original and a well built yacht.
It boasts a navigation station/chart table that includes a seat and some nice touches when it comes to bunk space.
If you are on the outlook for a comfortable cruiser/racer then this should be on your radar as it offers great value for money.

These boat details are subject to contract.
