I've outfitted my little Imperial Courier with some passenger cabins to try out the new-ish passenger missions. I rather enjoy them, and they can be pretty profitable.

So I want to pick up a dedicated passenger ship to make use of the Luxury Cabin options.

An Orca is still pretty far out of my budget, but a Dolphin at around 1 mil I can definitely handle.

The only problem is, I can't find any... I've even used this tool which is supposedly supposed to show ships, however every station that said it had a Dolphin (I've checked 4) didn't have it at the time.

  • I did a quick google on this... and found the following info... I could post it as an answer, but it's not really detailed. roguey.co.uk/elite-dangerous/ships/dolphin/where.html

  • Switching from an Open instance to a Private instance might refresh the marketplace for whatever station youre visiting, that used to work for outfitting, not sure if its changed. Never really tried to scum for a ship though, shipyards may work differently.

From personal experience I would recommend checking the Rougey website which was also mentioned by Steven Davison in his comment.

When checking a station make sure you check the ones where the update icon is green. While ships should be available for longer than a day it is possible that something like a civil war or famine stops the sale of ships (and commodities).

Also a thing to consider when buying a ship: Buy it in Li Yong Rui space You'll pay 10% less for the ship and any upgrades. I've just checked the website and there seem to be a few stations that sell it within 50ly of the Lembava system.

Please note that you need the Horizons addon in order to purchase the ship since it's patch 2.3 exclusive!

  • Removed the previous comments, as they are not relevant to your answer. Thanks for the Mention, however! :)

  • Unfortunately that site gives the same system of the last I checked that claims to have a Dolphin, but It was not there either. roguey.co.uk/elite-dangerous/universe/hip-20998/…

  • @Rapitor Hmm this is seriously weird... I've found all my ships and components with rougey and never had any problems. Are there any wars/riots going on in the system? Also does the station sell any other ships?

  • The station has every other ship listed on that page if you select the shipyard tab... just no dolphin. Is there a faction or merchant rank required or something for them to show up?

  • @Rapitor The only other thing that comes to my mind is the Horizons addon. If you don't own it you can't buy the ship since it's patch 2.3 exclusive.
