1983 Dickerson 50 Ketch

Yorktown, Virginia

$195,000

The "Volantis" is a great offshore sailing yacht. Dickerson only built two of these fine yachts. Featured by Ferenc Mate in "The World's Best Sailboats".  She is a 2-owner, impeccably maintained yacht with a displacement ratio of 260 which is ideal for offshore sailing.  She is also intercoastal capable with a spar height under 65 feet. "Volantis" has always called "Chesapeake Bay" home, but has sailed extensively from Canada to South America.  This is a one-of-a-kind boat.
