Commander 80 Performance Cruising Yacht Dibley Marine

The Commander 80 is a high performance cruising yacht of modern appearance with two-handed capability. She has a smooth interior / exterior flow that re-defines luxury, both on deck and throughout the accommodation.

The hull form has relatively fine u-shaped sections forward, which soften into a flat run aft. To ensure high performance while providing a spacious, comfortable interior, the topsides have been flared so as not to adversely affect the yacht's ideal volume distribution below the waterline when sailing.

The result is a narrow, super-efficient waterline beam in flat running trim, and a powerful, highly stable platform for upwind work. Twin rudders and a lifting keel permit access to the shallow waters that are usually unattainable by yachts of this size, while at the same time allowing real upwind performance. The twin rudder configuration also allows a large tender garage and lazarette to be incorporated aft. The sleek, uncluttered look of the vessel is greatly enhanced by the recessed sail controls and winches

A true Owner's yacht
Wide-open deck spaces provide excellent relaxation areas and an easy sailing platform. The large cockpit is arranged to give all-round visibility to the principal helmsman from either of the twin wheels. The self-tacking roller jib and the furling boom are controlled from this safe, protected area. The Commander 80's interior is laid out to provide owners and their guests with total comfort and privacy. The layout is open and spacious. The main saloon, entertainment and dining area, which offer panoramic views while seated, have been designed to create an air of intimacy. Owners' and guest cabins are positioned aft with adjacent bathrooms. For this particular brief, the owners required a versatile area forward of the mast that can accommodate a live-aboard skipper and crew when required. This area is also used for extra guests where appropriate. In summary, the Commander 80 combines sophistication, elegance and comfort together with performance and ease of handling to satisfy the very most discerning owners
