November 2011 Topic: Dibley Newsletter
The Dibley 55, ‘Marilyn’, was launched in February of this year by her owner/builders Stan Peyton and Mark Woods. After sea-trials, she dropped her mooring lines and headed north to Tonga and Fiji for a few months of idyllic family cruising in the Pacific Islands. Clocking up a few thousand nautical miles with 250+ nm days, Stan commented,
“After a fantastic sail to Minerva Reef in under four days, we continued on to Tonga in less than two days. Marilyn is proving to be a great Ocean Passage-maker and is extremely comfortable in large seas and fresh breezes.”
Dibley Marine’s Design Director, Kevin Dibley, worked alongside Stan and Mark throughout the build and fine-tuned the design further to cater for changes they wanted in the accommodation layout and systems. The result was a complete success and her recent attendance at the Auckland International Boatshow resulted in further enquiries from those looking at dropping the hectic pace of life and sailing off into the sunset. Further photos and the yachts specifications can be acquired from Dibley Marine.
