One of the original Cape Dorys ... a sturdy, versatile, fun-filled boat that is a joy to sail. A rugged boat that appeals to many sailors as an ideal tender. The Cape Dory 10 is an excellent example of traditional and functional design accomplished with modern materials. She has a rugged fiberglass hull, solid teak gunwales and seats, trimmed with bronze hardware, to make the Cape Dory 10 durable and carefree. She is a sound boat and a sound value. In addition to the rudder and tiller, adjustable centerboard, she comes with a striped sail and a simple gunter rig as standard. The Cape Dory 10 ... a great boat to start with and still going strong.
