Cape Dory Typhoon, 1979

  • America's Littlest Yacht is one of the most popular daysailers ever built ... a fractional sloop rig with Roller Furling and halyards and sheets that lead to the cockpit/cabin top so no one has to go on deck to raise the sails.

    Typhoons, designed by Carl Alberg, is the perfect boat for beginners and experts alike. The Typhoon's "full keel", has 900 Ibs. of molded-in ballast which gives the Typhoon the feel of a much larger boat; very seaworthy and stable. She has lovely lines with a spoon bow, a graceful sheer with moderate overhang fore and aft that provides excellent reserve buoyancy in a seaway, and teak coamings.

    Below decks, the cuddy cabin contains forward V-berths, 2 quarter berths, and an area for a portie potty (2015) head and portable ice chest, plus a surprising amount of storage space for a boat of this size.

  • This Typhoon (built in 1979) is in excellent condition.
  • All original (with new Roller Furling, Genoa, mainsail installed in 2015) and need no restoration what-so-ever.
  • No blisters, or soft spots (ever). Bottom anti-fouling done 2015.
  • No issues with deck stepped mast compressing the roof of the cabin.
  • Bright work needs nothing.
  • This boat is solid.
  • Teak cockpit sole constructed in 2015; custom companionway built in 2015.
  • A custom 'mast raising' device, also built in 2015, will allow easy solo launching and retrieval for far away gunk holding.

    This is perhaps the finest Cape Dory in the South. Search the internet to find your comps. You will learn that this boat, in similar condition, with motor and trailer is priced in the $8,000 to $14,000 range.
