After 20 years of prideful ownership it’s time to part with Dionysus.
More information and Pics to follow. Asking 29k.
Feel free to PM me with any specific questions.

Someone is going to be very happy with that boat!
Best of luck to you Ed. I am pretty much decided that my 911 will be my last boat.

Wow, if looks could kill I would be dead in the water. Beautiful boat.

Chicago. Otherwise I'd tell all my pals here.
I could say the same about my friends here, too!
:)
There are presently four Olson 34's in Portland, and one (that I know of) Olson 911s. These designs were decades ahead of their times regarding speed and accommodation. (Strictly IMO)

Love that hull's deep blue shine!
:egrin:

Best of luck with the sale Ed. I'm sure you'll find a great new home for Dionysus. I hope you continue visiting us on this forum and on the O911 FB group.

Every time I see a picture of Dionysus, I wish I could justify painting my boat that color... it's just too darn hot on the Chesapeake for a dark blue boat.

All the positive comments make it that much harder to part with.
In Chicago we call the color “tactical blue”. Hotter during the day? Yes. But provides concealment for night excursions while “in range”

Ed,
Same here - if you were closer to the Eastcoast, I would send this out to many people. I think the $29k is a great deal and I would not imagine she will be on the market long. Besides, to sell a beatiful and quality sailboat like that, you must have better plans ahead.
Good luck and thanks for the info you provided me earlier this week.

Dionysus sold last month. Attached is a pic of my last sail on her taken by the new owner. I’m really going to miss that boat, but it’s time to move on with her replacement.
I can’t express my gratitude to everyone on this site who helped me (knowingly or not) along the way.
This is not a farewell, just an update.
I’ll continue to “hang around” as the knowledge on this site often translates to other vessels. I believe the new owner has signed on.

Ed,
Most say that the happiest time is when you buy your sailboat and also when you sell her.
I never felt happy selling any of my sailboats that I own....

Good luck!
PS So what is your ''replacement'? .... please don't say a motor boat.

No motor boat for me unless it’s of the small inflatable type.
Our sailing priorities and home base have slightly changed.
We found a Jeanneau 349 that fit the bill nicely.
I had my doubts initially about sailing performance, but was throughly surprised after a lengthy sea trial.
Not the performance of the 911 but a different purpose boat. Should be a nice fit for more lengthy Great Lakes cruising.

Whenever I hear this I make a point of rolling my eyes as loudly as possible and saying, “oh, that only applies to powerboats.”
