The "Caretaker" has been my personal boat for the past recent years. I purchased her in Florida a number of years ago. She was previously a Bahamas boat. She was mechanically refit by her owner before me that kept her in Del Ray, FL and added her new 240hp Yanmar and Next Gen 3KW diesel generator with sound shield. I have since added new Dometic Air conditioning system that works on her 30 amp shore power or her generator under way or on the hook. Also added new 12v/110 Vitrifrigo fridge/freezer, New Garmin GPSmap 741xs with chirp depth finder and radar. Also added a second screen droid pad to use as a lower helm repeater! A new lower helm swivel seat was added for comfort to steering below in inclimate weather. I additionally added Bennett oversized trim tabs to allow her bow to remain easy to see over while she is running fast and visibility is a must from her lower station. Also added an electric windshield wiper. Occasionally having a large number of guests aboard, the tabs lift the stern up under way to give her hull nearly the same performance and lower helm visibility! Having a new Fusion bluetooth stereo controlled by the Garmin screens is an awesome upgrade. Also having a new smart TV below with a custom added cushion insert, makes the small L seating below expand into a deep couch or second single berth or pillow lounge! She has an Icom IC-M502 VHF with new bridge power mike, wireless power spot on FB with controls on bridge and lower helm. She has a new stainless anchor roller and stainless Delta plow type anchor for easy secure anchoring along the waterway! Her interior cabin has new cushions, a custom comfortable fwd mattress with 12V fan, Galley includes a Origo 110V 2 burner dual fuel stove. A deep stainless sink and hot and cold water single facet with green granite countertop. Her head has an electric W/C with a holding tank under the fwd berth. A hand held shower with 110v hot water and recent 12v sump pump drainage. 

"Caretaker" is a 1989 Cape Dory 28 Flybridge with graceful Downeast-Style lines. She was built on an easy-riding semi-displacement solid fiberglass hull with moderate beam and has a tapered keel and a fully protected prop. This vessel is currently boathouse stored and is in average condition throughout. She has been maintained by her very knowledgeable owner and is ready to go cruising today! (Full disclosure, she has gel coat crazing on her decks and her aft cockpit deck. Her teak is varnished and Cetol coated, her exterior has been compounded and waxed and her bottom was painted last fall and is in excellent condition. She is a very able and fun boat to take where ever you want to go today, be it the great loop or the Florida Keys or the Bahamas. She is only 2'8" draft, which allows access to anywhere, including beaching her and stepping off her swim platform). She is not a perfect boat, but she has taken me back and forth to Florida safely and comfortably and has been the most enjoyable boat to run single handed I have ever owned. She has large fuel capacity and three water tanks for additional liveaboard range! I have had her Yanmar and her generator professionally maintained and they have seen full service and upgrades during my ownership. "Caretaker" will run comfortably at 6 knots, 12 or 15 knots and will top at 20K and burn between 1.5 GPH at slow cruise and up to 6 GPH at mid cruise speed and 8 GPH at fast cruise! She is very economical and fun to drive and will find dockage easily as she is so compact, 28' x 9'11" beam!!


The V-berth has storage below the custom mattress and has a center insert to provide a large area for sleeping for two, hanging locker to port, head & shower to port, galley down to starboard, lower helm station to starboard and two piece settee is to port. The spacious cockpit has sliding door entrance to salon on the starboard side and ladder to flybridge is to port. The nice size flybridge has a bench seat with seating for three. All interior upholstery is newly reupholstered!
