2 sternDorcas side view 4 helm

Our Dad and now we have owned “Dorcas” and carefully maintained her for 36 years.   Now selling as bought a bigger boat.  She’s in good condition and runs well. Some sanding and varnish would make her really shine.  Located in Westport Island Maine, which is near Boothbay Harbor.

We repowered her with a Volvo Penta V8 225 hp fresh water cooled engine, and then refurbished the engine in 2010. We estimate that the engine has under 500 hours since new.  Cruises at 18 knots, with maximum of 27.  Hull is sound. Trim tabs, gauges, radio, sounder, lights and wipers all work.  Nice cushions. Upgraded 50 gal plastic fuel  tank. Marine head.  Includes bow rail and cradle. She has been kept in a boat house over the winters, and is available for sea trial.  $6,900 or best offer.
