BOAT SHOW SPECIAL
THIS IS A MUST SEE CLASSIC YACHT
Pretty lines and a forgiving design from Carl Alberg, plus a sturdy build, make this classic a capable offshore cruiser. Andrew Vavolotis founded Cape Dory Yachts in 1963. The fledgling company went from building the original 10-foot Cape Dory to becoming one of America's premier sailboat builders in the 1970s and 1980s.
It is a privilege to announce this listing for "Spray", hull #98, of this renowned CD 36 classic. When you first see "Spray" you will immediately be drawn to her graceful lines, stunning Teal Awlgrip hull, and her obvious well maintained look overall. She is certainly a boat that is easy to imagine as yours when you walk down the dock. While she is a very capable offshore cruiser she also feels quite at home in local waters. With the self tending staysail and self tailing winches she is a breeze to sail.
SPRAY has been impeccably maintained...
As a recent full time solo cruiser and live aboard, I will offer you many insights and shared experience in choosing your next boat. This includes technical as well as outfitting advice. As a corporate "graduate" I will offer you a customer service experience that has my full attention and includes both negotiation, insurance, and finance skills.
I will help make your boat buying experience easy and fun, and guarantee that you can get the boat best suited for YOUR boating needs and budget. I will help make your buying and selling experience take less time. I will help make sure you get the best price. And, I will be there to help manage your showing, survey, insurance needs, financing options, and closing activities… whew!
Also, please, don't forget! I am always looking for good, quality sail and power boat listings. Call me to discuss your current boat and how we can maximize its sale and minimize it’s time on the market.

The interior plan is straightforward and functional, and the level of finish is exceptional. Dropping below through the slightly off-center main hatch you find yourself in the galley. The small nav station and quarterberth are opposite the galley to starboard. The saloon is warm and inviting. Continuing forward the head is to port with a hanging locker opposite. The V-berth cabin is spacious. There is storage in well-crafted drawers below the bunks. This is definitely the cabin for sleeping when at anchor, with a large overhead hatch and opening portlights to move the air around. Ventilation is excellent throughout the boat as well with plenty of opening bronze portlights.

Sails and Rigging
The cockpit was designed to accommodate a pedestal and decent-sized wheel. The visibility from the helm is excellent and the narrow beam places the sheet winches within easy reach. Yet the cockpit still feels spacious and there's plenty of storage with lockers port and starboard and a lazarette astern for the propane tanks. The teak coaming boards add a nice touch. There's a stout bridgedeck and the mainsheet traveler is set up on a bridge spanning the companionway with midboom sheeting on what is a proportionately long boom. The side decks are wide and there are long teak handrails atop the cabinhouse and a stout teak toerail. The single-spreader mast is keel-stepped and heavily stayed.
The Cape Dory 36 tracks well and resists pounding in a seaway. With an SA/D of 15.7 and a D/L of 356, the CD 36 isn't a race boat, but it can carry sail and continue to make way when lighter, faster boats are running for cover. The CD 36 tracks quite well and heaves-to very well which is very reassuring to bluewater sailors.

The reliable Perkins 4-108 4-cylinder 40-horsepower diesel engine was standard on the CD 36. It is set into place behind the companionway with just enough room to work on it and the maintenance items are within easy reach. The engine compartment is also nicely soundproofed.
The electrical panel is located directly below the companionway behind the steps.

Hull and Deck Features
Cape Dory did an excellent job of building boats and the proof is how well they've held up. The hull is hand-laid in a rotating, one-piece mold with alternating layers of fiberglass mat and woven roving. The deck is balsa cored except in areas of high loads and stresses where it is solid glass, plywood, or aluminum. The hull-and-deck joint is on a wide, 3-inch inward flange and through-bolted on 12-inch centers.
Separate tools or molds were used to lay up the headliner and the pans in the V-berth and galley. The ballast is cast in two pieces and placed inside the keel cavity. It is secured in place with several layers of fiberglass and covered with gelcoat for a smooth, clean bilge finish. The rudder combines two fiberglass half shells filled with a polyester compound and is built around a beefy 1 ½-inch stock.
