Cape Dory

Cape Dory

Cape Dory Yachts was a Massachusetts-based boat builder that operated from 1963 to 1996, and during that time, it produced several thousand models sized from 10 to 45 feet. Carl Alberg, the Swedish yacht designer known for his influence in early fiberglass boats, did many of the Cape Dory models, including the sailboats that often employed traditional lines, narrow beams and a full keel design for better handling in heavy winds. In later years, Cape Dory branched out from sailboats to produce powerboats and trawlers for the recreational market. Those classic designs are still in demand today. These simple and straightforward cruisers are prized for being well built in the Downeast workboat style, and for offering a safe, reliable and fuel-efficient ride at a leisurely pace.

The Cape Dory 30 was designed by Carl Alberg to meet the needs of the serious cruiser. There is ample locker and storage space throughout. Her galley was designed to include more storage areas and more efficient use of space. A two burner stove is standard as is the large top-loading ice box. The warmth of wood is built into every one of the Cape Dory yachts. The 30 is no exception; from top to bottom, you'll see plenty of evidence of Cape Dory craftsmanship.
She has a huge forward head with drawers, lockers, and a shower with a teak shower grate and a shower sump. There is a Navigation Station across from the Galley with electronics and gear storage cabinet.
The Main Cabin berths (One double and One single) are 6'6" long with a fixed drop leaf table between them.

Custom Contact Information

Call/E-mail JEFF ALLEN for details. Please CALL AHEAD for an appointment to see this vessel. Not all listings are located on site and some need advance notice to be shown.

Showing Instructions Please note that all of our vessels are shown by prior appointment ONLY! We ask that that you give us at least 24 hours notice (even more if possible) by email or phone before you wish to see one of our boats. That way we can be sure and block out some time for you to see the boat! We do not want to arrive to an empty office because we are out showing a boat to your neighbor! Many of our boats are kept off-site & sometimes we can meet you at the marina/yard where the boat is located, or nearby and save you time traveling to Portside Yacht Brokers unnecessarily. We look forward to hearing from you!
