1983 Cape Dory CD 36

SAINT SIMONS ISLAND, Georgia

$44,900

  Auto-Pilot, New B&G Plotter, Upgraded Furlers, Sails and Mast/Boom/Rigging 

Go Anywhere - Blue Water capable - Full Keel with 5' Draft and under 50' Bridge Clearance

 

This Cape Dory 36, hull number 83, is a unique vessel in that it offers the best of both worlds - comfortable coastal cruising as well as safe passage making to distant shores. A notable Carl Alberg design with a full keel (cutaway forefoot) and a shallow draft, the CD 36 is known for decent upwind performance. With a cutter rig and lines leading to the cockpit, the Cape Dory is a great option for the single handed sailor. 

 

Whisper has been well kept up and modernized. She went under a refit in 2008 and had nice upgrades in 2020-2021.
