GRACE has the advantage of being built by The Anchorage Inc./Dyer Boats. Dyer Boats introduced this hull in 1955 and has built over 350 of the Dyer 29's. It is the longest running fiberglass boat being built and is renowned for quality construction. The Dyer hulls are built with seven layers of solid hand laid glass with two additional layers of glass from the spray rail down for extra strength.
The deck to hull joint is fused to the deck with silicon and bronze screws driven through the toe rail. This makes a very strong and dry joint. The bulkheads are tabbed to the hull and deck using glass mat and cloth.
The hull has a long wine stem shaped keel integral with rudder and the prop is in a protected area.
The cockpit can be fully covered with a canvas cover to keep her clean and dry. The helm deck side windows allow you to extend your cruising season. The custom aft seat has cushions and a teak table that can be stored below.
GRACE is powered by a Yanmar 6LP-DTE 250 HP diesel engine with only 580 hours use. The transmission is a Borg Warner Series 5000.
Racor 900 fuel filter.
