"Sunshine" is a 1985 Cape Dory cutter! A true classic cruising yacht. Solid fiberglass hull, balsa cored deck and cabin, she is stout, shallow draft, beautiful lines and has been well cared for by her original owners. She includes a new mainsail with stackpack, inflatable hard bottom dingy and outboard and renewed interior cushions and cockpit cushions. Her 12 v refrigeration, nice electronics and autopilot will steer you to destinations unknown! Call today to set a time to personally inspect "Sunshine".

The SELLER reports the following about the care and maintenance of the "Sunshine":

* A new seat was purchased for the dingy in 2018 and new water hoses for the boat. Diversified  Marine washed and waxed the hill and deck each of the last 5 years in the Spring for  $750. They charged about the same to do the shrink wrapping in the winter, including 2019. 

* Three(3) AGM Series 31 Batteries were added in 2020 for $720. A new Aqua  Signal  bow light and LED White Polar Star 40 were also added in 2017 along with some new rigging.  The binnacle cover was repaired and the Engine was serviced in 2017, as well for $1900. The bottom was also prepped and painted in 2017. Ullman Sails made the New Endurance Mainsail with two reefs and full length battens with canvas upstack for  $3,972 in 2017. 

* Sunshine was hauled out and her bottom painted in 2014 for $2,300. DMI speed and depth instruments were added for  $1320 also. LED lighting added for cabin lights. The Magma Marine Newport Gourmet BBQ  Gas Grill was added for  $277. The Life Sling was replaced.

* In June 2019 Diversified Marine Services washed and waxed the hull, cleaned the bottom, applied antifouling paint, replaced the zinc, cleaned the prop and shaft with Propspeed cleaner and antifouling paint.  $2200

* Creative Canvas  made the cockpit cushions and reupholstered the cushions in the interior of he boat in 2013.

* Bernie New, the diver, cleaned the bottom and added a new zinc every Spring. He will do it again next week on 7/20/2020. $150.
