Broker's Comments

The Dolphin 31 is a well built fin keel cruiser with a spacious interior and good sized cockpit.
The engine is only 5 years old. The Sails are in good condition.
The interior is very clean and tidy.
This boat has a good inventory and she is in the water and ready for the season.
If you are looking for a good family cruiser this boat is worth serious consideration and represent good value.
