We're sorry to see this one go but happy to say that she has been sold.
This is a sweet example of the highly sought after Cape Dory 30. With her many upgrade and ketch configuration, you'll have many choices on sail reduction when the wind gets up. When its calm, her engine pushes her at 5-6 kts (1/4-1/2 gallon per hour). The seller has routinely sailed her over 500 miles each summer, mostly solo, so her two type of self-steering are priceless.
A major feature of her configuration is that the self steering wind vane is also an auxiliary rudder system completely independent of the boats steering mechanism. Should the boats steering become disabled, this allows even better steering as it is located on the stern (further aft) where the original rudder is attached to the keel.
Some of her many upgrades and features are listed below:
-Raymarine autopilot 2012,
-New South Atlantic servo-pendulum wind vane with auxiliary rudder system (S500) 2016,
-speed and depth,
-New 145 jib and Profurl RF 2007,
-new full batten mizzen 2008,
-new full batten main 2010,
-New forestay 2016,
-new bilge pump 2016,
- Lazy Jacks 2016
-12 Yanmar diesel (YSB 12),
-2- 10-gallon diesel tanks,
-2- 25-gallon fresh water tanks,
-head with holding tank.
- 35-pound CQR anchor,
-Origo 2 burner stove,
-solar panel trickle charge to house battery for bilge pump
According to the seller, this boat is in sail away condition, and he rates it as an 8 out of 10. They are only selling because they have moved up in size.
This boat was out of water between 2011-2014 while the sellers were in school. But before that and since then she has been widely sailed up and down the Maine coast.
The engine has been winterized each fall and runs perfectly.
The seller says this is a great, dependable boat for both good weather and bad.
