S900-dibley-marine-e5

The brief from Sagittarius Sporting Company's Marine Division was for a sea kindly hull form that would handle the most adverse conditions under speed, combined with an aesthetic look that separated the design from other manufacturers and models.

It must also fit within a 40-foot container with the bags deflated. Working alongside client representative Paul Goddard, the result is a hull that has a moderately deep-V bottom incorporating wide chine flats and a low beam length ratio. The inflatable is D-shaped as opposed to the traditional tube shape which maximises internal space. Various internal and cockpit layouts are available including a console version and a cabin version with a small interior layout. Further models are on the design table.
