About DBY

The DBY is an award winning luxury sailing yacht that combines the elegance of the past with the comfort and sophistication of the present.

This 33m cutter was the last classic yacht to have been built in the 20th Century. She was designed by Andre Hoek and built by Klaasen Shipyard in the Netherlands in 1999 and launched just before the new millennium. Having had 3 refits since launching, she combines modern performance standards with classic grace and modern refined living.

Constructed out of aluminium, the DBY’s lifting keel allows entry into shallow harbours and secluded bays where other yachts are unable to venture.

The DBY has also taken part in some of the most well known sailing yacht races in the world: St Bart’s in the Caribbean, the super yacht cup in Palma, Mallorca, Les Voles in St Tropez and the The Asia Super Yacht Rendezvous are just a few.

On Board Facilities & Accommodation

With open plan accommodation throughout, the DBY can become a real home away from home.

The interior is an overall theme of subtle Honduras Mahogany teamed with cream panelling and chestnut flooring.

The DBY exudes elegance and style whilst creating an informal atmosphere.

Charter guests can enjoy four double ensuite staterooms. Two of these staterooms can convert into a twin for added flexibility for families or parties.

The DBY is fitted with DVD and Satelite TV throughout and also includes GSM with telephones in all cabins, VHF radios, satellite and broadband.


On board catering is sumptuous. The chef will cust omise all meals according to guest preferences agreed ahead of each charter using locally grown produce and the freshest, highest quality products.
