2008 29' C Dory Venture Diesel Inboard

I'm preparing to sell my special C Dory after 10 years of cruising the Erie Canal.
Penguin is a unique boat. A C Dory inboard diesel. Powered by a Yanmar 6BY 220 HP 6 cyl turbo, it gets incredible fuel economy but also provides power and performance. I'm getting a new hip and then a new knee so it is time to move on. She's a great boat, well cared for, fresh water and low hours. Well equipped and maintained. Happy to provide more info if anyone is interested. Currently I'm asking $99k based on what I see similar vessels selling for, but I'm open to negotiation for serious offers. If you'd like more info, let me know. Or if you plan on cruising the Erie Canal. I'm happy to provide any info if you're looking for it.
Thanks,
Capt JJ

Howdy neighbor (fellow Midlakes boater on Patience). We’ve always admired Penguin. Sorry to hear of the hip and knee issues. Good luck with the sale and the ops.

Likewise! Patience is a beautiful and well suited canal cruiser.

Neither. The engine sits behind the cabin bulkhead, with a straight shaft. Cabin is quiet, engine, transmission and shaft are in line. Short 1, 1/2" shaft. Hull design is a tunnel with a wedge to provide extra lift

with a new hip and knee, you should be better off boating than before. I've had two hips replaced. I would have barely been able to get into my current boat prior to my surgeries.

Boating on artificial joints

I agree that you should reconsider, I have two new knees and a hip, I am not giving up boating, that’s why I had them done.
