As one of the longest continually produced designs, the Dyer 29 has earned her excellent reputation for seaworthiness and style. Built for fishing and cruising in all of the conditions New England's coastal waters can toss up, the Dyer is ideal for buyers in search of the all-around powerboat package.
TURSIOPS was built by The Anchorage in 1976 and is hull number 136 in the line of more than 350 boats built to this design. There are a number cabin and deck layouts available for the 29 and TURSIOPS was purchased with the down-east hardtop and trunk cabin; making her comfortable both underway and at anchor for all her passengers.
The boat was re-powered with a 200hp Yanmar diesel and has totaled less than 400 hours since new. TURSIOPS cruises at a comfortable 14-16 knots while remaining fairly fuel efficient. To assist with close quarters maneuvering, a bow thruster was installed for additional control.
Electronics include, Garmin GPS and Furuno Radar and an Autohelm autopilot.
Below decks, TURSIOPS has a small galley to port, with a Homestrand LPG stove. An inclosed head is to starboard with a v-berth forward.
