he Choice of Epoxy, Eglass, Foam Sandwich construction
with Carbon Fibre stiffening was the easiest way to achieve a light weight construction. This enables the high top speeds, increases load carrying and improves range/fuel efficiency.
By painting the Dale 23 in Awlgrip we can create a hard wearing finish much tougher than Gel Coat and far more UV stable. This also means the boats can be made to match fleet colours or super yachts where required.
On first tests the Dale 23 out performed expectations on Handling, Speed and performance. They achieved the design speed of 40mph with a standard propeller which means more performance is available if required. Mike Reynolds of Dale Sailing commented that the handling at top speed was the best he had ever experienced.
