Kevin Dibley, '2017 Yacht Designer of the Year'
Kevin Dibley was named ‘2017 Yacht Designer of the Year’ at the recent Asian Marine and Boating Awards in Shanghai.

DYD Ltd has been very busy of late in Australasia and although relatively small, the Asian arena is one of the growth hot-spots in the global leisure marine market.
The Dibley designed Kraken 66 has been nominated for the ‘Bluewater Cruiser of the Year’ in the Sailing Today awards in the United Kingdom.
The results will be announced at the Southampton Boat show late this September. Public voting can be done till August 21st at www.sailingtoday.co.uk/awards2017.
