1985-1986 Farr-Dickerson 37'


See Bruce Farr’s Design info and speck sheets and interior plan here:


Honu was the last of the Farr 37s to be built.  Actual date isn’t clear.  Some mod changes were introduced in the cockpit making it a bit larger then the traditional design for the helmsman as per what was popular with other Farr owners at the time.  Other then that it’s to spec.  No bulb.  840 lbs in the bilge.  Tall rig.


In 08/09 I refit nearly the entire boat to the tune of about 50g.  Rig, electronics,  interior…  A full list is more then what I can put here.  But a full list for what was done is available along with a 2011 post work full survey, current PHRF, older IMS rating and new rig design spec sheet.  Feel free to E-mail me for details.


Sails are a little older but still raceable.  And even fast with a little love.  Took 2nd last summer with just my family in the Annapolis to Solomon’s Race.  Won first in 97 in the Hampton to Bermuda race.  Boat is set up for racing and cruising but with more of an offshore layout.  We did more off shore work and long distance racing then beer can races.  In the refit did what I could to make it short handed easy.  Auto helm, roller furler, stiffer rig with less need for runners, carbon spring pole…  All refit was done with offshore race inspection in mind (both for racing and to make family safe), ss life lines not covered, storm tri track next to main track for separate loading… 


Full Set of Sails includes:

Carbon Main, 1 and 2

Dacron 3, 4 in great shape

4 Spins in good shape .5once -1.5 once


Storm Tri

Storm Jib

3DL main


2 Say sails


Boat comes with cradle


The short-handed sailing set up was also to accommodate my family.  We have cruised to NY, Bermuda and all over the Chesapeake Bay.  Great Family boat.  Sleeps 8 at the dock,  off shore with lea cloths sleeps 6 easy all at once.  For the family of 4 is very comfortable.  Dry boat, clean fast bottom, solid safe cruiser.  Took a new job, doesn’t pay enough to move the boat.  On the hard as of this September and paid till spring. 

E-mail questions and details.  Will consider trade or other offers.  Moved jobs and states.  I am looking to size down a little.  Something on a trailer or able to trailer would be good as a trade or partial trade.  Power or Sail.
