Hull Identification Numbers (HIN on the stern of your D-One) and Sailnumbers are related. I have spoken to Devoti Sailing & Suntouched Sailboats, they both confirm a mistake was made in recent deliveries. See below for the full exlpanation.

I’m awaiting the full production list from Devoti Sailing so that I can compile a comprehensive sail number list, there could be a number of 2010 boats affected.

Built 2015: initial number 5 + serial number
Example
CZDSLD1020A508
CZ = country; DSLD10 = builder; 20 = serial number; A5 = Built Jan 2015; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 520

Built 2014: initial number 4 + serial number
Example
CZDSLD1020B408
CZ = country; DSLD10 = builder; 20 = serial number; A4 = Built Feb 2014; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 420

Built 2013: initial number 3 + serial number
Example
CZDSLD1020C308
CZ = country; DSLD10 = builder; 20 = serial number; C3 = Built March 2013; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 320

Built 2012: initial number 2 + serial number
Example
CZDSLD1020D208
CZ = country; DSLD10 = builder; 20 = serial number; D2 = Built Apr 2012; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 220

Built 2011: initial number 1 + serial number
Example
CZDSLD1010E108 (this was my first boat)
CZ = country; DSLD10 = builder; 10 = serial number; E1 = Built May 2011; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 110

In 2010 an error was made … which lead to DSLAD being changed to DSLD for 2011 (otherwise there could have two 148 boats for example)

Built 2010: initial number 0 + serial number
Example
CZDSLAD1015C008
CZ = country; DSLAD10 = builder; 15 = serial number; CO = Built March 2010; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 015
Mistake later in 2010
Example
CZ-DSLAD1048H108
CZ = country; DSLAD10 = builder; 48 = serial number; CO = Built Aug 2010; 08 = model year 2008

Using the method for 2011 to 2015 would give a sail number of 148 (due to error) but as a 2010 boat sail number should be 048

Built 2009: no initial number + serial number
Example
CZDSLAD1001A908
CZ = country; DSLDAD10 = builder; 01 = serial number; A9 = Built January 2009; 08 = model year 2008
Therefore sail number 1
