Cape George is known for quality construction and excellence. Hull #13 was a combined effort of the owner and Cape George. The first upgrade consisted of a solid (not cored) layup including extra layers of glass and 100% vinyl ester resin thus providing extra strength to the hull. The owner's version of the interior includes custom woodwork of teak, mahogany, Alaskan yellow cedar and purple heart inlays. Systems include hydronic heat, refrigeration, AC and much more. A conservatively rated Yanmar 51hp diesel with a closed cooling system is accompanied by a full electronics package.
Lorgadoir Eolais (Lore ga door O lish) in Gaelic means "Seeker of Knowledge". This boat was built to explore the world. The next adventure is yours.
