Rick Oleson's Playful Dolphin, 1969 Yankee, FOR SALE, Mere Point, Brunswick, Maine - updated June 15, 2017  

June 15, 2017 - Rick emailed advising Playful Dolphin has been sold. We'll standby for the new owner to check in

Hi Ron,

Please remove me from email list as I sold my 24' Yankee Dolphin last December.

Thank you and enjoy your dolphin sailing!!


Fair Winds Rick!




October 28, 2016. Fred Goguen, (Thankful, Pacific Dolphin #261) brought this ad to our attention. This is a newly found Dolphin, our 225th (75 more to go). Despite the fact that this boat has been sailing in Fred's backyard for years Fred will receive the DFI badge, really an honor long overdue.


Used every summer on Casco Bay for the past 12 years. In good condition, no water damage or structural issues. Motor included - 2004 9.9 HP Nissan 2-stroke outboard, runs well. Boat is stored at Paul's Marina on Mere Point in Brunswick, Maine. Priced to sell - $4000 or best offer.

All proceeds benefit the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA). Learn more at www.mita.org.

Webmaster Note: Website staff coincidently are planning a trip in the next few days to this area and will try and find out more about Playful Dolphin - she is clearly expert at playing hide and seek!! Stay tuned.


November 1, 2016. Rick Oleson checked in with a short note (edited), and your webmaster just happened to be up in the Harpswell area of Maine on non Dolphin related matters, stopped by Paul's Marina, had a short visit with Playful Dolphin, and got the following picture.

Hello Ron

I will not be at my place in Brunswick this week but feel free to drop by Paul's Marina to see our 24' Yankee Dolphin - "Playful Dolphin". It is located on back of boat storage area on North side of lot - it's hull color is green. We are planning to fix/replace front hatch that blew off before winter. I have removed all the interior cabin cushions for storage over the winter. It does need some deck cleaning and the woodwork is in need of oiling or a full varnish job. Otherwise the boat is in good shape - we sailed it all summer on Casco Bay and it sails great. The outboard (9.8 HP 2-stroke Nissan) that comes with the boat I expect should have been taken off boat and delivered to Bamforth's Marine for cleaning and winterizing. This motor has been very reliable and always starts. Sails include a full main, 135% genoa and spinnaker.

Let me know if you should have any questions.

Rick Oleson

November 2, 2016 - Rick's Postscript

Actually, shrink wrapping was not to be done until motor was removed and taken to Bamforths Marine for winterizing - which will be done. Also was trying to have front hatch repaired before winter and shrink wrapping. Will provide some internal pics and details later next week.

Thank you again.
