An opportunity is available to anyone local or overseas, interested in joining an established class, for offshore capable, short-handed, racing.
Aimed at coastal, semi offshore, and offshore short- handed racing, the Classe 950 is an already established Box Rule offering a stepping stone from the Mini Transit 650 to the Class 40 which is getting such good results and fleet numbers out of Europe.
Dibley Marine is working alongside Structural Engineer Nina Heatley and a New Zealand boat building company to develop a structure package for this exciting new design.
SPECIAL FEATURE :
New Dibley Classe 950
The brief for the Dibley 33R was for an exciting high performance racing yacht that combined dinghy like performance with strength and seakindliness for semi-offshore and coastal races. She also had to fit within a 40-foot container and be shipped anywhere in the world.
The hull form utilizes a narrow beam waterline with slightly hollow waterlines forward, with our usual u-shaped sections fairing into a flat run aft. The combination is carefully considered to ensure a well-balanced hull form that will perform beautifully upwind and down.
