The Cape Dory 31 was during her time, one of Carl Alberg's most innovative interiors designs in a 31 footer. Spacious, bright and airy combined with a unique and efficient layout for comfortable cruising. 

Under sail, the Cape Dory 31 cutter rig provides for spirited performance in a wide range of wind and sea conditions. Designed for lively action and durable enough for offshore pursuits. The full keel configuration with attached rudder adds to her stability. The self-tending club footed staysail reduces windward sailing to effortless tacks, and allows for a variation in the sail plan.

INQAQUA is a one owner Cape Dory 31, that has been well maintained by her owner. This boat has always been stored indoors in the off-season since 1985.

All deck fittings registered DRY on moisture meter.  Absolutely no deck crazing on this boat!!
