1978 Dickerson Sloop-cutaway forefoot

New Bern, North Carolina


This is a true bluewater boat. Cabochon,  means Gem that has been shaped or polished but not faceted.  This is truly a very special boat. Cabochon, is a very traditional design for the Nostalgic Sailor.  This is the 2nd owner and lived on this Sloop Rig for 18 years with his Wife.  This boat has a few unique things that I know will appeal to just the right buyer:  A wood stove in the main cabin.  Burns, wood,charcoal or black coal.  It also has all hand pumps for Fresh water.  This boat has plenty of miles on her and more to come.  Both owners were very meticulous.  I was told this is one of 3 Dickerson's in the Sloop-Cutaway Forefoot design.  Please come a take a look.
