Farr 37

Recommended Posts

The one built by Dickerson?  I had one for 7 years.  Enjoyed it.  They were built well and they were light.  Originally had about 1,300 pounds of lead in the bilge.  Not sure about sailing it shorthanded as it needed bodies on the rail.  Any specific questions?

Currently race on a Farr 37-Dickerson. 

Can't imagine it makes a good shorthanded platform, but to each their own. 

What do you want to know about them?

So no good single handed cruising or with a couple?

I dunno, we used to race ours double handed and my wife & I could easily go away for a few days.  Furler made cruising life a little easier.

Nice pic. Good looking boat.

I reckon that's a thumbs up. Single handed cruising is more about rigging I reckon - I'm happy to be corrected. I'm not the most experienced.

Thanks, I appreciate your response. There's a few of these for sale around Aus at the moment and I quite like the look of them

The Oz ones were well built. Most would have had the rigs replaced / rebuilt by now. Cruising or shorthanded will be easy with a furler and slides/cars on the main.

Look for one with the extras - 3 blade folding prop, decent anchor winch, good fridge and auto pilot
