The Masthead
45’ R/C YACHT
By
Kevin Dibley, DMG Ltd.
T
he Dibley 45 is designed as an
entry level racing yacht that can
be built and sailed competitively at
an affordable price. Every area of
this design has been simplified to
make competitive sailing enjoyable
and rewarding. All systems are on
top of the deck, and equipment
kept to a minimum. This is the per-
fect set up for those looking to
compete in local races with good
friends and crew mates. (refer
above).
With that said, Dibley Marine can
modify the deck plan to suit those
looking for top end racing in inter-
national regattas or offshore races
where more controls and systems
are in place for faster tuning and
maneuvers.
The interior is clean and simple,
with easy access from the cockpit.
This takes you into the galley which
is positioned amidships and can be
worked from both port and star-
board sides. Sleeping for eight with
the forward berths converted to
settees when required. A sail drive
unit lies under the cockpit floor
with good access for maintenance
while good insulation will keep
noise to a minimum.
A forward enclosed head com-
pletes the layout. This will be a
Racer that is comfortable for the
longer offshore regattas or just the
extended family holidays between
races. In keeping with the Dibley
Design Studio we can offer a cus-
tom interior to meet all your sailing
needs.
