The Dipper was designed for the fisherman and pleasure cruiser that wants to get in and out of the weather and for the diehards that want to be out no matter what the weather. The boat is built using the latest technology with quality marine materials. The result is a boat with good looks, excellent performance, low maintenance, and the warmth and individuality of a custom wooden boat. All of these things make the Dipper an ideal boat for inland and coastal waters.
The wheelhouse is cozy, with room for a small galley, heating stove, refrigeration, double berth and storage. The aft cockpit is large, 64" x 6'2" with seating for three and stowage under the seats. The Dipper is easily trailered for fishing or pleasure cruising and at 2,460 lbs., it can be towed by almost any size vehicle. For power on the Dipper, we recommend an outboard in a motor well. A 10 hp Yamaha or a 15 hp Honda 4 cycle provide quiet, smooth power, and cruises Dipper at 7-8 knots speed with good range.
