Boats for Sale

Dyer Dhow "Midget"

This is the nicest Dyer of the many we have seen at the Museum boat shop. Beautifully restored, the boat shows as new. Complete with dolly, varnished spars, ash oars, bronze oarlocks, two sails (a blue and white one, and a new “rainbow” sail), fitted cover, boat hook and Dyer burgee. The smallest and most popular dinghy of the Dyer line, the Dyer Midget is a sought-after cruising tender and day sailor. The "Midget" will carry up to three people, and is easy to set up, handle, and stow away.

All proceeds of sale go to the Calvert Marine Museum. Asking $2,500 or best offer.
