Please make any posts about the boat for sale, not about Marie and my personal plans. We will continue to boat, with our Caracal 18 Cat. I will be 85 in a few months, and for the both of us cruising in a small boat is coming to an end due to our physical limitations. We have put about 300 hours on her in our 3 years.

You must be looking at CD22s as comps instead of CD25s.
Or Kelly Blue Book.
Eoliver1, you need to look at C-Dory comps and then look at the updates, modifications and accessories. If I was looking for a 25, I would be on the road already, and that is from the NW corner of Washington State. I'm sure it is worth every cent of the 70K.

Rather that speculate low-ball pricing, it would be best to contact Dr. Bob to discuss it.
In my totally unbiased opinion, this has to be the best equipped, most meticulously maintained CD-25 on the planet. I know Ray (the guy who did the upgrades before selling it to Dr. Bob) and I was beyond impressed with all he did with that boat. Then, turn the ownership over to Bob and Marie, the folks I trust more than anyone else on Earth for factual seamanship and advice, and the next owner will be buying one very impressive C-Dory 25 Cruiser.
If I were in the market for another CD-25, I would buy this in a heartbeat. Some of you may know that I have a bit of experience with the CD-25... if you are in the market for this model, this is one of those best-of-the-best examples.
Don't let this one get away!
Dr. Bob and Marie, we wish you all the best with the sale of this fine boat and the next chapter.

While this boat may seem a little high on the pricing side compared with some other 25's, I can guarantee you it is fairly priced. Bob has taken excellent care of all his boats, and has added a lot of nice extras you will not find on most. I purchased my 2009 25 last April for $58,000, and it was pretty bare. I easily put another $10G in it with my own upgrades, and still don't have everything Thataway has. I've known Bob for the past 10+ years, and I'm sure he'll be more than willing to work with anybody on pricing. In any case, this is a nice boat and well cared for. Looks like he is throwing in a lot of other stuff as well that allows for a great cruising experience.
Personal note. Sorry Bob to see you selling it. And about a year too late! (I should have waited another year...) So enjoyed the times we cruised together! Colby

Nice boat! If it was not 3000 miles away and in a different country that I am not allowed to drive to you would have me looking at it right away! _________________ Discovered the C Dory and think it will be my next boat. Currently looking for a good 23 foot cruiser.
