The Carl Alberg designed Cape Dory 30' is a capable offshore cruising cutter with handsome, traditional styling, and a full keel. The cutter rig is very easy to sail and the well-known Cape Dory quality is evident throughout the boat - beautiful craftsmanship, eight opening bronze portholes, hand laid fiberglass hull and bronze cleats and fittings. She is a two-owner boat in very good condition. "DIRA" is the very comfortable "B" interior layout with a large, comfortable head (new in '12) and shower forward.
