Miss Dill is a one-of-a-kind vessel using a modern fiberglass hull to produce a well-designed deck and interior similar to local boats built in the '30s and '40s in this area. Her narrow beam and slender lines, both above and below the waterline, make her very sea friendly. Her all wood interior reflects a bygone elegance. Miss Dill has been gently run and maintained very well, and has a new coat of varnish for the 2018 season!
