1946 – 1987

Founded by Bill Dickerson who built of variety of different craft, most notably the ‘Simplissima’ 34, 32 and 26 line of hardchine strip planked ketches, as well as the DICKERSON 40 of a similar type. In 1967 the company was sold to Thomas Lucke who moved the company to La Trappe Creek in Trappe, Maryland. Lucke continued to build the popular 35′ strip planked mahogany ketches and the DICKERSON 40 ketch. The DICKERSON 36 was introduced in 1972 which featured a plywood hull with wooden deck and superstructure. By 1978, Ted Reed was running the company. Reed commisioned naval architect George Hazen to design a new boat which ultimately became the DICKERSON 37 which had a fiberglass hull. The DICKERSON 50 was introduced in 1982. In 1983 production began for the another DICKERSON 37, a Bruce Farr designed racer.
