The Diben 23 (7 meters) is a recent construction by the French traditional wooden boat school Skol ar Mor. She was designed by Francois Vivier to be a contemporary version of the traditional Brittany cutter. The Diben 23 is plank on frame construction of Douglas fir on alternating laminated and steam-bent locust frames with a solid oak backbone, stem and transom. Decked with epoxy encapsulated marine plywood she also has a more contemporary self bailing cockpit with plenty of storage space and an outboard motor well under the aft deck. The spars are made of Oregon pine, and the rig is easy to strike as the mast is stepped on desk into a stainless steel tabernacle. Her bowsprit is retractable to permit access to some of the more congested ports. The Diben 23’s cabin has berths for 4 crew members, a space for a chemical WC, Icebox and stove all of which make her an ideal coastal cruiser and island hopper. The stability of her design and her sturdy construction also makes her thoroughly capable of channel crossings. She also comes with a pair of sea-legs for moorings in extreme tidal zones. All in all the Diben 23 has the seaworthiness and charm of her Brittany origins.
