We have recently had a large increase on shorthanded capable racing yacht enquiries. The Classe 950 is our most popular to date, and the Class 40 is another that is showing a lot of interest. Both these Classes are well established globally, but the concept of safe ‘Open type’ offshore yachts can also be a ‘concept and philosophy’ that can fall under any size.

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.
