Brokers comments: The classic Carl Alberg designed Cape Dory line is well known for its sea keeping abilities and strength in the build process. Great lines and ample space below for a couple to take a cruise without worry should a sudden storm appear. Dove has the much sought after Yanmar diesel inboard engine. If youre looking for a classic design at a very affordable price, look no further than Dove. In need of cosmetic cleaning and some renewed varnishing.
