DALE Yachts are currently have a most interesting build under way of a Corby 36 high performance sailing yacht.
This yacht is being built for an existing DALE client who was looking for a top quality build for a high performance sailing yacht which will be racing at the highest levels.
Corby Design were chosen for their track record of excellent sailing results and, having witnessed at first hand the build of his own DALE motor yachts, DALE were selected as builders.
The hull is a composite build: A laser cut jig has been created for the hull and deck. For the hull cedar strip planks are then scarfed together and fitted to the jig assembly. The hull is then faired before being sheathed in carbon fibre and finally faired to a smooth finish with a epoxy coatings and finished with Awlgrip paint.
Internally, the hull is fitted out with a combination of carbon fibre and timber materials.
The superstructure is a composite build: A composite carbon fibre foam core structure.
The sailing fraternity are keeping a watchful eye on this build and will no doubt being paying close attention to DALEs meticulous attention to detail – photos on this page show how the build is progressing – please come back to this page for regular updates and new photos.
