Dudley Dix Yacht Design
Virginia Beach, VA
Designer of Boats of all types, many from plywood or cold molded wood. Developer of radius chine plywood method for fast cruisers and racers. Cruising designs for lapstrake plywood and dinghies for stitch-&-glue plywood.
I have sailed more than 60 years, surfed more than 50 years and designed boats more than 40 years. I have raced many thousands of miles on the waters around the Cape of Good Hope and across the South Atlantic Ocean. That on-the-water experience gives me the intuition to be the seat-of-the-pants designer and sailor that I am.
