Naval Architect Carl Alberg has incorporated into this sturdy sloop designed yacht, both seaworthiness and ample interior space that offers steady and comfortable cruising and built to the very highest standards by Cape Dory Yachts.
This is A ONE OWNER YACHT, THIRTY EIGHT YEARS of ownership, which is quite a testimony to everything that IS A CAPE DORY YACHT!! Whether offshore or in the bay, cruising in a Cape Dory 33 means cruising comfortably in a boat that offers pride of ownership as well as lasting value.
Cape Dory is perhaps best known for the Cape Dory Typhoon, a salty little eighteen and a half foot sloop designed by Carl Alberg and built between 1967 and 1986. The Typhoon became the standard by which nearly all future Cape Dory boats were designed and constructed. All were traditional, sturdy, conservative designs that were well mannered under most conditions. Designed by the late Carl Alberg, following the design example of the Typhoon. The Cape Dory 33 is no exception.
“Loki” is a masthead sloop with powerful lines and is easily driven, responsive and stable. Cape Dory has consistently built boats of enviable quality and proven design, boats that have withstood the relentless tests of sea and time…”Solid Sailboats, Solid Investments”. Cape Dory Yachts has built this yacht with hand laid-up fiberglass hull, molded fiberglass deck with ½” balsa-core, teak exterior trim on caprails, coamings, hatch trim etc., and a large self-bailing cockpit with teak grate & 32” pedestal wheel steering.
Below the water line, the hull shows a fine entry with a long cutaway forefoot followed by an efficient full keel and offers ease of handling and lively performance. She has a spooned raked stem, a raised counter transom, and a keel-mounted rudder controlled by a wheel, which makes this design a powerful windward sailor.
IN THE OWNERS WORDS:
“LOKI” has been for 38 years, a one owner boat!!! At ten years old my uncle who was captain of 200 foot vessel in 1890, retired and gave me a homemade boat, which I had to teach myself to sail. I later joined the Coast Guard and retired in 1982. I Raced Hamptons and later San Juan 24 and upon my retirement, I bought “LOKI”, the Cape Dory 33, MY FIRST BRAND NEW BOAT.
In the Coast Guard I was the electronics/electric guy. I bought the Cape Dory 33’ because I believed and read that it was the best production boat built at that time. I sold my house and moved on the boat, sailed down the waterway to Ft Lauderdale and stayed there for a year, just me and my dog. The boat was great and nothing ever broke that I could not easily fix, it’s a really tough boat. The following year, I sailed back from Lauderdale to Maryland and have mainly sailed her on the Chesapeake bay. Now at 88 and having some balance problems, it’s time to pass “LOKI” on to a knew loving owner. She is a great boat and I'm going to miss her.

Below deck inspection will reveal a boat that stands apart from most production sailboats. Cape Dory's craftsmen, in their New England tradition, have used select hardwoods with careful joiner work to produce a warm and inviting interior. Accommodations are comfortable and functional, from the forward stateroom to the navigator's area. Most importantly, you are assured that during every stage of her construction, skilled and concerned craftsmen were responsible for your Cape Dory.
Built in the U.S.A. using traditional time proven standards and workmanship as a semi custom yacht, the Cape Dory 33’ is what one expects a proper yacht should be. The cabin sole is teak and holly. Also, ventilation is provided by a total of 10 opening bronze ports, 2 overhead hatches and 2 dorade vents. So regardless of the exterior environment, the interior of this yacht maximizes comfort.
The sleeping accommodations are somewhat unconventional, starting with a single berth mounted in the port side of bow, with a seat and bureau in that cabin. The berth may be also converted into a double. There are 6 separate drop door lockers above and under deck, and a low boy and two other cabinet lockers aft of the Vee berth.
Moving aft towards the main salon, to port is the head and to the port side and includes a privacy door and en-suite shower with teak grate underfoot. Outboard and below there are plenty of lockers. In the passageway aft and across from the head, you will find generous well ventilated hanging locker and low boy cabinet to starboard.
The main salon features very traditionally functional fore and aft settee berths and can be used for secure sea berths while underway in difficult conditions, including one that converts to a double and a third berth, and aft to port in the main cabin, partially under the cockpit and adjoining the navigation table is a nice quarter berth which is perfect for the “off-watch” sailing companion.
The galley, the kind of U shaped galley one expects with an offshore passage maker is at the bottom of the cockpit companionway and to port. This location makes it possible for food and refreshments to be safely passed up to the cockpit in almost any sea condition. The galley of the Cape Dory 33’ is known as one of the largest in a cruising boat of this size, and includes a 2-burner propane stove with oven, microwave oven overhead and refrigeration system in the icebox.
There is plenty of storage in drawers over the ice box, cabinets behind the stove, dry storage locker next to S.S. double sink & locker under the sinks.
The gimbaled stove is fitted with a counter cover that stores behind, when not in use. Twin stainless steel sinks have lots of storage below and there are drawers for utensils and misc galley items. Outboard and above the stove are generous storage areas for dishware and a microwave oven is mounted in a teak cabinet above the sinks. The top loading refer/freezer provides enough space for extended cruising. Large top loading dry storage lockers are outboard of the sink and refer.
Across from the galley and to starboard is a forward facing nav station with room under deck for the necessary ships electronic and navigational needs. The nav table has plenty of storage under the lid and within storage areas below. There is also storage above and outboard to starboard.
If you are looking for a properly designed, safe bluewater passage making yacht, then, “Loki” is an affordable yacht that will be worth your further consideration. Yachts of this size, class and price, are few and far between.

Above Deck Hardware & Safety
The hull is built of a solid laminate of plastic resin and fiberglass cloth. The laminate thickness is greater than average for a production sailboat in this size range. The hull is supported by fiberglass encapsulated structural members, full and partial transverse bulkheads and molded fiberglass liners. The hull is molded in a one piece mold which is turned from side to side as successive layers of fiberglass are applied during the laminating process. By placing the mold on it’s side, the manufacturer could place the fiberglass and work the resin more accurately than would be possible if the mold was always upright.

Miscellaneous Brokers Comments & Notes
From the listing broker: My view of boat is that it needs a good cleaning, and with a little elbow grease, time, sanding and washing, it will give the new owner a splendid little yacht that is renown as a classic, sturdy and well-founded boat…the Cape Dory is known to be of solid condition and construction.
Needs new plastic in dodger, needs new plastic cove stripe, compounding of hull and dog house, cleaning of sails and cover. The teak and holly floor would be beautiful again with sanding and varnish. The cushions need cleaning. All bronze ports are in good shape and appear to have heavy glass lenses in them. Boat appears to be built like a brick!!!!
It will make an excellent offshore live aboard yacht for the right client who knows the reputation of the Cape Dory 33’ and who is willing to put in sweat equity to attain an affordable yacht and live the dream of cruising.
