1995 Dyer Soft Top

location icon Duxbury, Massachusetts
Year 1995
Length 29 ft

Very nice example of a classic design built by Dyer.  This is as good as it gets.  Beautiful in every way and maintained by very knowledgeable owners, you will need to add nothing to this beauty.  The Yanmar 170 runs at top about 18 knots and cruises at 14 and most importantly she fits without an engine box.  It's the best engine for this boat.  Make an appointment soon.  This one won't last long.

Additional Information

Designed for cruising, fishing or as a general utility boat, the durable Dyer 29 is an industry classic.  She began her production nearly 60 years ago.  Built on a soft chine hull with a full length spray rail and prop protecting keel.

Lucky is a wonderful example of this legendary classic.  Meticulously maintained by Master boat builder Rene Goulette of So. Bristol < me.  Stored indoors every winter under her current ownership.  Her owners have spent $25,000 plus in upgrades in the past three years.  You will not be disappointed.
