Why can't I find a Dolphin?

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.
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!
