The Cape Dory Typhoon Weekender is a tough and forgiving timeless classic designed by Carl Alberg. 2000+ of these gems were built between 1966 and 1986. 'Sequoia' is Hull #1173. Nicknamed "America's littlest yacht", she is kindly, stable, stout, and remarkably dry.
'Sequoia' was lovingly restored with absolutely no expense spared between 2008 and 2010. See full specs for details on the boat and trailer and on the restoration.
