Sturdy Cape Dory in very good condition. Professionally maintained.

The Carl Alberg designed Cape Dory is one of the most popular Cape Dory designs with over 500 built.

The Cape Dory 28 features a full-length keel with attached rudder, relatively low freeboard, a very handsome sheer and a well-proportioned traditional trunk cabin. The bow and stern are nicely balanced and overhangs are a bit shorter, relative to the overall length, than Alberg's earlier designs.

The deck arrangement is well balanced. The foredeck is large enough for sail handling and ground tackle, side decks wide enough for safe passage and the cockpit is large enough to accommodate four adults.

The cabin has a V- berth forward with fill in to make it a double berth and the port side settee pulls out to a double and the starboard is a single to sleep 5.

There is a foot pump to galley and head sink. The galley contains a 2 burner alcohol stove and Icebox.

There are two opening deck hatches and eight opening bronze ports for the best ventilation to be found on a boat of this size.

In Cape Dory fashion, the hull is heavily laid fiberglass and is in great condition.

Seller bought the boat last year and motored most of the way up from Mass to Maine. the boat has been sailed quite a bit since last august in the Penobscot Bay.

This past Nov. they left Camden Maine and worked their way down the coast until storing in Norfolk.They were planning on heading back in March to continue sailing, but a job has changed that plan.

The owners maintain boats for a living and their boat reflects that. She is a wonderful boat who looks after her captain and guests.

She is prepared for any voyage and will continue to be more capable than her guests will call for.

If you're looking for a small cruiser with offshore cruising potential, classic style, then the Cape Dory 28 may just be your ticket to sailing happiness.

ConditionThis boat is very well maintained and upgraded. Seller has all maintenance records since taking ownership in 2014. Topsides were properly prepped and painted last spring with EZpoxy. Decks and cabin trunks were also repainted. Owner says there is a small soft spot in the cockpit. Cockpit coaming and bright work was refinished last winter. Standing and running rigging have been replaced as needed with a new lower shroud and a new main halyard. Sails are in very good condition according to owners. They are likely from the early 90's, but have been well taken care of and are of a heavier Dacron than needed. They were just looked over by a great local sailmaker in Camden Maine and he said they were in great condition and show limited signs of wear. Harken RF 130 genny with suncover. The boat also has LED navigation lights, brand new VHF, Raymarine GPS(Color with charts, but not new) plotter with an older Garmin back and a Raymarine radar. All bronze Spartan thru hulls clean and serviceable. The Yanmar 2GM20F Diesel was new in 97'. No hour meter with the motor but given that the boat has been a short day cruiser its whole life until current owners bought it, hours are somewhere around 1500-2000 hours. The seller has updated the wiring to the mast for VHF, Streaming and Deck Light, RADAR, GPS etc. The boat has LED Running Lights. The Bilge Pump was recently rewired and there is a secondary fuse panel for electronics.
