1986 Cape Dory Cruiser

St. Croix, Virgin Islands (US)



The Cape Dory 28 is a great family boat with the incomparable seakeeping abilities you find in a down-east semi-displacement hull. The rich yachty interior makes her a truly remarkable power cruiser for her size. She was designed to maximize interior space, combining comfort and the simple elegance of a classic interior with a spacious cockpit and wide side decks.

"Dollagon" has been lightly used over the past few years, so the current owners have decided to offer her for sale so another family can enjoy. She comes on her own triple axel trailer.
