1997 Dibley 250 Sportboat
Offered at $25,000.00
Carbon, the Dibley 250 is a purpose built racer designed primarily for twilight and rum racing. An added requirement was that it had to be suitable for the Coastal Classic in both design and construction. It features a hull design that is fine on the waterline and has aggressive flare in the hull to create cockpit wings. The entry is fine forward with a little hollow and slightly tapers in at the stern to create a balanced hull form when heeled. The keel has the obligatory bulb with a healthy 380 kg for stability when powered up and short-handed. An added bonus is the extra stability while at her mooring and in pre-start maneuvers. The cockpit is high and wide with rounded edges for greater comfort. In contrast the coach roof barely exists and basically provides a platform for fittings and the rig.
