Denis Ganley was a leading yacht designer in New Zealand who specialised in steel yacht design aimed at both the amateur and professional builder. The reason for designing mostly in steel is that many of these designs were intended for offshore and serious coastal cruising and so they provide the ultimate in strength and safety. There are over 1,000 of these designs either sailing or under construction around the world.
Denis Ganley received many accolades during his 35 year career, inlcuding winning the 1986 Steel Award for best Consumer product with the Pacemaker 40 design (a first for these awards). Many of his designs have made remarkable passages offshore and have successfully competed in various regattas and other events.
