The Cape Dory 31 features one of Carl Alberg's most innovative interiors. She's spacious, bright and airy ... with a unique and efficient layout for comfortable cruising. She's designed and built for extended voyaging. The head includes a shower with flip-up, teak slatted shower seat and is located by the companionway on the port side. The galley is to starboard, with huge icebox, gimballed stove and stainless steel sink.

Under sail, the Cape Dory 31 cutter rig will excite you with her spirited performance in a wide range of wind and sea conditions. She's designed for lively action and built to take it when offshore. Her "full keel" with attached rudder adds to her stability, while her self-tending club footed staysail reduces windward sailing to effortless tacks. Inspect the Cape Dory 31 closely ... from her custom designed bronze hardware to her yacht-finished teak trim ... to fully understand why Cape Dory sailboats are first in demand when it's time to go to sea.
