A SOLID 'n PROVEN BLUE WATER CRUISER
RAVEN is a radius chine steel hull boat (round bilge) designed by renowned South African Dudley Dix and built by Glyn Buckle.  She has a modern design and capable of long ocean going journeys.  The hull was extended an extra foot to allow for an extended swim step on transom.  The steel hard top dodger installed in 2001 allows great protection from the elements.  Hull is insulated from approx 12 inches below water line and up.  Watertight bulkheads at transom and bow (chain locker) add another level of safety to this true blue water cruiser.

History and Owners CommentsVessel was completed in 1996 in South Africa. The hull was built by Glyn Buckle and interior finished by the owner. The hull is a Dix 43 with an extended swim step. She has a nice fair hull with round bilges. There are watertight sections at both bow (chain locker) and stern (swim step). Main tankage is in the keel increasing stability. The vessel (Wind Cheetah) was sailed to the US and sold. Re-named 'Happy Dream' by the second owner we bought her in 2000. In 2000/2001 she underwent a complete re-fit with much new equipment fitted. All the floorboards were removed and the entire bilge area prepped and coated and the exterior hull UHWP blasted and re-coated below the waterline. A new hard dodger and radar arch were installed in 2001. Between 2001 and 2006 she was sailed from the Gulf of Mexico to Turkey via Labrador, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Morocco and many other countries.
We spent a very comfortable winter in northern Scotland with just a small oil radiator as heating. The dodger provides great protection from sun and gales and kids love to jump off the top of it. The dodger top is insulated to reduce heat beneath and it is bolted in place so it can be removed for maintenance. With the engine running the forced air heater can be used and will keep the area in the dodger at the companionway opening warm--the value of this cannot be overstated to the night watch in a gale above 60N. The aft cabin berths are good sea berths so we never had to use the settees as sea berths.
There is a deep bilge sump forward of the engine box. All hand tools are stored in a 10 drawer tool cabinet under the companionway ladder. The engine can be accessed from all sides for maintenance and the engine box is sound/heat insulated. The rope lighting throughout the main cabin provides great ambience for dining.
Raven is built and equipped to allow the owners to spend long periods away from marinas and civilization.
