Vintage Dirigo Boat Compass

Not new but in EXCELLENT shape. I was going to install it in a sailboat build that just never happened.



Would be excellent for use in any boat but these do VERY well in metal boats. It is fairly large, 6 or 8" across and comes with the hood. Would look cool as decor for a "man cave" or as a collector piece too.


$300 OBO

BTT Great shape and good looking piece of nautical equipment.

Suitable for metal boats or just put it in your den.

What is the model and size? I have never before seen a Dirigo that was not a flat plate type compass. Yours is a bowl type.

I called Dirigo and they said that they did indeed make a round topped compass for awhile.

I think you’ll get more interest if you provide precise measurements. 8” is a hell of a lot bigger than 6”. What’s the diameter of the hood?
