Cape Dory cutter, 30 feet, 1982

More than just lip service is being paid to the word "quality" by Cape Dory. You just won't find fine details on stock thirty footers such as you'll find on 2nd owner Gabbiano. For example, on deck there are, integrated into a central raised molding running fore and aft, two Plexiglas hatches. One serves the forward compartment and the other is located for good lighting and ventilation over the main cabin. There is a dorade box to Port and winch handle pocket on the mast. Coamings and toe rails are teak. The companionway hatch slide was replaced in 2014. Deck professionally repaired and painted in 2008. All hardware is of top quality Spartan bronze, anodized aluminum or stainless steel, and standard equipment includes double lifelines, bow pulpit, stern rail, genoa gear, halyard winches, headsail winches, roller furlers for Yankee and Staysail, Garhauer main sheet traveler, two P.V.C. ventilators on stern. Down below there is a galley aft with convertible dinette to port and a settee berth to starboard, which really makes the best conversational seating arrangement. The toilet compartment is located between the main cabin and the forward cabin, which sleeps two in the vee-berth with the "Tufted Topper". Lots of top grade wood coupled with beautiful joinery make this as close to a "no compromise" stock boat as you'll find on the market. The same high quality molding techniques that Cape Dory is noted for is used in the construction. The Cape 30, ballasted with 4000 pounds of inside lead and driven by about 437 square feet of sail, gives lively performance and a nice turn of speed.
