General Details

This 1982 28' highly sought after Cape Dory sloop is located in NJ.

The Cape Dory 28 offers her owner more practical cruising features combined in one design than other yachts of her size ... features such as a self-tending club footed jib for effortless windward sailing ... a bowsprit that incorporates an anchor roller ... and a large 2 cyl. 13 hp Volvo Diesel that adds safety and dependability. These features, when combined with the famous Alberg full keel and moderate, well-distributed sail plan result in a yacht that is easily handled by a minimum of crew. Her hefty displacement of 9,000 pounds, and her long keel with attached rudder allow the Cape Dory 28 to hold her course in a seaway. These features mean comfortable motion, stiffness, and security to all aboard. Other standard equipment such as bronze opening ports, lightning ground system, bronze seacocks on all thru-hull fittings and solid bronze hardware, reflect the determination of Cape Dory to supply a cruising boat of the highest standards.

She has 2 sets of sails, one that is 2 years old, the other set are the original sails.
Many improvements made in the past few years:
2010 – Replaced both the mainsail and jib. Sails were custom made by John Eggers, Inc. of South Amboy. The receipt for these is in the boat records.
2010 – Installed a dual bilge-pump system. The Water Witch switches were replaced in 2013 for Tefgel Ultra Pump Switches. This summer the primary pump has stopped working, this will be replaced.
2010 – During the current owners first haul-out they removed most of the bottom paint, primed with Primacon and gave a generous coat of Interlux Micron 66.
2011 – Replaced two batteries for Seavolt 650 and replaced the battery charger for a ProMariner, proSport series heavy duty unit.
