Steve Dashew's and Ulf Rogeberg's world cruiser is fast, efficient, innovative and very, very expensive.
There is no doubt about the Deerfoot 61's purpose in life. This boat is made for long-distance cruising. "We'd sailed thousands of miles on a 50' foot CCA-designed ketch and like most liveaboards we dreamed of the perfect yacht," says Steve Dashew, author of the Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia. "We never realized this dream would end in a boatbuilding business."
