Kevin Dibley of DYD Ltd is very happy to announce that their Kraken 66 design was selected as the winner of the 2017 Bluewater Cruiser of the Year which was just announced at the Southampton Boat Show in the UK. British magazine Sailing Today [www.sailingtoday.co.uk] nominated yachts from the Hallberg-Rassy, Amel, Beneteau and Najad ranges – as well as the Kraken 66. Dibley is delighted and grateful to Sailing Today for presenting the award to the Kraken 66.
Kraken Yachts Sales Director, Mark Williams, attended the awards ceremony on September 15th and accepted on behalf of the company. With the fleet including the Kraken 50 and 58, this is exciting news.
This is a very satisfying result by a team that includes not only DYD Ltd, but Kraken Yachts themselves who had the vision and supplied a comprehensive brief to allow us to create the great results. You can view the design on the Kraken Yachts Website as well as Dibley Marines.
In the meantime, the Kraken 50 blue water cruising yacht continues. Headed by Kevin Dibley, the design team includes structural engineer Peter Lawson from New Zealand, 3D modelling by Simon Paul in Australia, and the Kraken Yachts team of Roger Goldsmith and Filip Sochaj from their Hong Kong Offices.
More to follow on this exciting design further in the year.
