COMMENTS: DRAGONFLY is without a doubt the best-kept 30' Cape Dory Motorsailer ever offered on the used boat market. The present owners who are the third, purchased her in the Fall of 2009 where she had been primarily in fresh water on Lake Champlain. They proceeded to undertake a complete refit in 2010 and 2011. This work included a new Yanmar 44 hp diesel with new transmission and exhaust hose, new dripless shaft seal and new bow thruster. The hull, deck and pilothouse were Awlgripped, all interior and exterior teak was refinished in varnish or Cetol, a new Lewmar windlass was installed, new roller furling main was purchased, new Garmin HD radar and GPS-Plotter were added, new Harken roller furler on headsail, new AGM batteries, and new ultrasuede berth cushions. The vessel is now in first class condition. Due to a change in the owner's plans, DRAGONFLY is now seriously for sale. The vessel's inventory also includes a 10' Achilles inflatable and 4hp outboard. Please call us for your inspection of this popular motorsailer which is easily handled from the wheelhouse and cockpit by two people. We thank you for your interest.
