Owners / Builders of the Dibley 55 Center-cockpit Cruising Yacht , ‘Marilyn’

In February 2011, ‘Marilyn’ was launched followed by 7 months of cruising Fiji and the surrounding Pacific Islands with the family. The following came from Stan & Mark (October 2011):

“We first contacted Kevin when we were looking at purchasing the hull of the Dibley 55' and gleaned a lot of useful information from him as he was the designer/consultant for the builder of the hull.

Finding him helpful and professional led us into using his services upon purchase of the boat. His skills as a designer blend really well with the qualification as a naval architect, as we were particularly concerned to get the stability right after moving tanks around etc,everything he did was spot on and we are especially pleased with the aesthetics of the coachroof he designed as it is always hard to get a center cockpit boat with hard top to look good, the end result being  something we are proud to look at and completely practical.

With a project such as ours was, being able to call the designer at any time,even for a chat , made the project much more enjoyable and the end product shows this.

We couldn’t recommend kevin highly enough to other customers. His easy going manner and totally professional attitude with modern approach at all times makes for a great boat building exercise on any scale.”
