Angelina's History

This Cape Dory was purchased in October 1985 by its current owners and has been part of the family ever since. She cut her teeth in the Gulf waters off of Texas and then ventured into the Bahamas and Eastern Caribbean in 1993-95 and traveled as far as Venezuela and returned to her home port in Texas.  In May of 2007 she returned to explore the Western Caribbean and has been to, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize...just to name a few destinations. She has just arrived in Florida from Isla Mujeres, Mexico.

She has proved herself a capable, ocean going cruiser and earned the love and respect of her owners who are ready for their next adventure and a new chapter in their lives.

The owner continues to maintain her and she recently had a new seal replaced on the engine oil pan. New Bottom Paint, Cutlass bearing replaced, and thru- hull fittings serviced in November 2012

Now it could be your turn to own and love this beautiful boat!

Design and Construction

For those of you that might not be familiar with Cape Dory construction and design, the hull and keel are all molded in a one piece mold which is turned from side to side as the fiberglass is hand laid so the resin can be absorbed more thoroughly.  Ballast is lead which is cast in three pieces and mounted in the keel cavity. They are then encapsulated in a low shrink polyester resin and microspheres & sealed with several layers of fiberglass and gel coat sealing the ballast from the rest of the boat which will protect it in the event of a hard grounding.  The hull design is a full keel with a cutaway forefoot which makes for a very sea kindly ride as well as protecting the propeller and rudder.


Starting forward is the Owner’s stateroom with Custom mattress. There are lots of drawers for storage,12v fans and a large hatch for ventilation. To port is the head with separate shower.  Moving aft is the spacious main salon with new covers for cushions area and then aft to port is the Galley with the Nav station directly across.  Further aft and to starboard is the Guest Stateroom with private door which was an option on this model.  Note: on this particular vessel the cushion is absent since the cabin was used as a storage room. The vessel has 12 opening ports and 5 opening hatches for excellent ventilation.
