The Dickerson 37 Cutter is George Hazen's best modern sailboat design
using state-of-the-art computer design technologies. It is ideally
designed for the shoalness the Chesapeake and Florida are known for.
With a 4'6" draft this fine yacht has access to many beautiful
anchorages not available to deeper draft vessels. A skeg rudder
provides stable tracking and easy steering. Sailing performance is
exceptional with a sail /displacement ratio (2.73). The cutter sail
plan is an ideal configuration. Ferenc Mark referred to the Dickerson
37 as follows: "Overall the boat is so cleanly designed that
there isn't a single bump or line or ridge anywhere that can be
removed. She looks completely clean and pure."
FOXFIRE was originally owned by the owner of
Dickerson Boatyard, and she was the “show boat” in 1984 at the
Annapolis Boat Show. She is now owned by her third owner who is
knowledgeable, and has kept her very well maintained, always stored
indoors under his ownership, and always a Northern boat. Additionally,
this boat has the preferred traditional layout, differing from many of
the Dickerson 37's which were designed with an aft cabin-charter boat layout.
We shall be pleased to get you aboard this handsome vessel.
