1981 Cape Dory 30 located in Minnesota for sale

30'2"' Cape Dory 30


Description: Design
The Cape Dory 30, designed by Carl Alberg, combines the security and stability of a full keel and attached rudder with the handling ease and versatility of a cutter rig. Her graceful lines and proper use of teak for toe rails, coamings, dorade boxes and trim set her apart from others her age and size. Exclusive Cape Dory designed bronze cleats, chocks, opening ports and deck hardware accentuate her timeless elegance.
The design is as functional as it is pleasing. The large self-bailing cockpit has a bridge deck, making a safer, stronger, drier boat. Two large cockpit lockers provide easy access to sails and gear. Light and ventilation down below are provided by two Lexan deck opening hatches, eight bronze opening ports and one teak dorade ventilator. Teak grab rails, lifelines, bow and stern pulpits, and non-skid surfaces add to the safety of moving about on deck. A foredeck anchor rode locker and bow sprit with roller make handling the anchor a breeze.

Traditional interior configuration with the V-berth with filler forward, storage under berth, 2 opening ports and an overhead hatch for excellent ventilation. Next is the athwartships head with vanity to stb, head to port and opening port on both sides. The main salon has port and stb settees with a bulkhead mounted dining table that comes down to accomodate seating on both sides. Storage port and stb both under and behind the settees. All the way aft is the galley that spands both side of the companionway with engine access under the steps.
