Besides the photos of Scherzo and our other 23' Dories available through the 23' Dory Home button in the left navigation bar, we have some current detail photos here. As you can see, this is a unique and lovely powerboat for fishing, cruising and family boating.


The roomy cockpit adapts to various purposes and group sizes. The captain and passenger chairs collapse and fold out of the way against the hull sides. The chairs are also on a slide so they can slide back for a standing position or forward for sitting. The port and starboard seat boxes have hinged teak tops for storage and can each sit 2 or 3 people.


There are port and starboard consoles for storage and a neat wiring job. The teak "cover" over the forward part of the splashwell is a picnic table as well as a bait and fish station. The permanent canvas top is light and lovely. The Sunbrella canvas is attached to a custom welded stainless steel framework.


The teak cockpit sole is self-bailing. It has large watertight flush hatches for access to dry storage in the bilge. The bifold mahogany cabin doors clip out of the way to the port console.


Arrangement of electronics and gauges.


The cabin interior is warm and homey. There is roomy sitting headroom and large windows for light. It also smells good, unlike boats built of that other material.


The whole boat shows evidence of careful, classic workmanship.


All fitments are of a high quality.


Scherzo was repowered with a Yamaha 100, which makes her quite a bit faster than she was with her original 50HP.
