Here is a bit of general news from the folks at Dubois...
The Dubois deisgned Fitzroy 50-meter sloop "Zefira" will be launched shortly, I believe she is project X-50 that was started in 2008.
Additionally, Fitzroy have signed another 50-meter project for launch in 2012.
Some news from Dubois Naval Architects today...
That's one big model! Any renders of the yacht...? Cheers
Yeah, I was thinking they should turn it into a "toy" for the main yacht
Yeah, she's gorgeous, very sleek. I think they should put some ratio gear in the model, a little bit of fun

I would love to get to a stage in my design career where they name a regatta after me
The Fitzroy sailing yacht built as "Zefira" is now on the market for sale...she's a Dubois design. You can check their website for more informaiton.
The Fitzroy Project 'G50' now called "Ohana" apparently has been launched by Fitzroy. More on this 50-meter yacht when we resume uploads to the News section of the YF website.

Silvertip takes second place at NZ Millennium Cup
Silvertip takes 2nd place at the NZ Millennium Cup and 1st place of the three Dubois designs racing. The now annual NZ Millenium Cup has just concluded in Auckland after three days of exciting sailing. Last year's winner, the Dubois-designed Silvertip has passed the Cup the this year's winner, Zefiro. Our congratulations to the winning yacht and we must say that a great performance was put in by all. This was the recently launched Ohana's regatta debut and she looked stunning, finishing inside the top 3 in all races and third place overall. Also competing was Janice of Wyoming, our 39.6m sloop launched from Alloy Yachts in 2005.
Just found on FB:
A small preview on Encores Logo in the Gennaker:
"Imagine B" is for sale! Designed By Dubois Naval Architects and built by Alloy Yachts in 1993, she is a timeless design that has recently been refitted and updated, and is now ready for a new owner to enjoy and cruise immediately.
The launch of "Encore" is appointed for monday 09h45 in the morning at Alloy Yachts.
Edit: Better for the Alloy News Thread, but can't delete the message.
Built by Vitters shipyard and launched in 2004 Drumbeg is a perfect example of Dutch craftsmanship and Dubois design!
Here she is in Rybovich Marina under a blustery and threatening sky!
I think this is the same yacht that was "Nelson".
