Descriptions

Vessel Overview

"DECOY" has been conscientiously maintained and extensively updated by her current owners of 13 years. She is tastefully done and the work has been performed by skilled craftsmen.

This reliable flush-deck boat provides a soft dry ride and with the new 2012 315 hp Yanmar turbo diesel she slices through seas at 20 knots cruising. She burns an estimated average of 2 to 3 gallons per hour over a season's use. The Dyer 29 Bass Boat's sleek lines are timeless in their appeal. The cabin with its enclosed head, galley, and V-berth - is adequate for a cruising couple. The bridgedeck design gives the owner a versatile space that offers great viability from the helm. The open cockpit is large enough to accommodate several folding chairs, and has a built in transom seat, secondary tiller steer and aft controls. Whether fishing or picnicking, the Dyer 29 Bass Boat is a salty no nonsence downeaster with a good turn of speed and exceptional sea keeping.
