I love this forum. I am looking to purchase a 29 Dyer for the family. We are looking to just cruise on the Long Island sound. If anyone know one's one for sale or any input we greatly appreciate any help.
Sorry I offer no leads, but wish you the best of luck. I think those are awesome boats. Especially for a family boat. Nice down below, the head is a decent size. I'm sure you know this, a that's why you want one
Great looking boat. If it fits your needs make an offer and get a survey. It looks like it has been well maintained. It seems clean and that is "usually" the sign of a great well maintained boat. Good luck in your search. This boat looks like a great place to start.
This is a pretty nice one too. It was owned by Rob Johnstone, the guy who started J-Boats so I am sure he took good care of it. Call the folks at Dyer if you want some more info or help. They do keep track of some or most of the boats, who owns them or any history that you might not get from a broker.
Always ask the broker for comps, they don't always offer them, if they won't give them to you then ask why not, if they resist, walk away.
Yachtworld has a SoldBoats database available only to Yachtworld brokers that covers boats sold thru their system since 1998, that's a lot of boats. Ask for data on how long the boat has been for sale and ask what they know about the boat. The good brokers will comply with these requests, the sketchy ones won't. It can be complicated to really assess the data they give you. If you really like a particular boat it can help to get a YBAA certified professional yacht broker to represent you.
