General Details

This nearly Bristol Dyer 29 has been meticulously maintained by her original owner since new.


Even after more than four decades in production, the Dyer 29 is in greater demand than it has ever been and is considered by many to be one of the most handsome small boats ever built. We should all be so lucky to grow old as gracefully as has this classic design built by Warren, RI boat builder, The Anchorage Incorporated.

Design credit for the Dyer 29 goes to Nick Potter who undoubtedly was much influenced by traditional New England lobster boats when he drew the lines back in 1955. The actual overall length is 28’ 6" and the beam is a narrow 9’ 6". The bottom is v-shaped forward and progressively flattens out toward the stern. The bottom rolls into the hull sides with a radiused turn rather than a sharp corner-like edge and there is long wine glass-shaped keel integral with the hull. The keel is cut away aft for installation of the propeller and rudder and protects the running gear from damage by accidental grounding. There is nearly 5’ of freeboard at the bow and a classic sweeping sheer that drops a foot and a half between the bow and the transom.

 The Dyer 29 is not only designed to look like a seagoing vessel, she is built to be a seagoing vessel. The hull is constructed with a minimum of seven layers of hand-laid fiberglass cloth. Nine layers are used below the waterline for added strength  The decks and hulls are joined at an outward turning flange with a substantial guardrail fit directly beneath the flange to prevent damage to the sheer. A full-length spray rail is fit along the hull side above the static waterline to deflect water away from the hull.  Perhaps the most outstanding and consistent feature of all Dyer 29s is their huge cockpit that accounts for more than half the boat’s overall length. The cockpit easily accommodates four fishermen or a half-dozen guests for an afternoon or evening harbor cruise.   


Dyer 29
The Dyer 29 Hard Top is so quiet that a social conversation or a picnic can be enjoyed while underway. The boat is easily driven, level-riding and non-pounding, with a 300 horsepower Yanmar 6 cyl diesel that slices through waves at 16 knots cruising speed and averages 3.5 gallons per hour over a season's cruising  The 29 has been proven durable and seaworthy by more than 300 owners and fishing captains. The raised bridgedeck over the engine offers great visibility from the wheel and, without an engine box, there's space to seat four around a table inside the enclosed top. Dyer 29's versatile 4-in-1 design maximizes the joys of motorboating. The sailboat cabin is perfect for a cruising couple with its twin V-berth cabin, galley and enclosed head. Guests may sleep aft on the optional screened-in porch.
