Cape Dory 25 – 1974, hull# 178

Classic, New England-made, full keel sailboat with timeless looks and great lines.

4000 lbs. of displacement and an 1800 lbs. encapsulated lead keel make this a durable and safe coastal cruiser. With only a 3 ft. draft, she is perfect for exploring the coastline and beyond! Can sleep four adults between the roomy V-berth and two 6ft long side berths. There is ample storage on this beautiful little boat, both in the cockpit and the cabin, making it the perfect weekender for you and your family or friends.

Altair has been refit and refinished over the last two summers and has been sailed extensively in Fishers Island Sound. She is ready to sail and requires nothing. With the roller furling jib and running rig brought back to the cockpit, she it set up for easy single-handing.

Altair is currently on her mooring in Noank, CT, which can be made available for the remainder of the current season. All pictures posted are from the 2021 season. What you see is what you get!

She’s been carefully compounded, waxed, and teak oiled for the duration of our ownership. Two coats of anti fouling paint were applied to the bottom in 2021 as the pictures show.

Comes with:

– Newer roller furling jib and CDI furler
– Original mainsail and cover
– 2019 Tohatsu SailPro 6HP motor, extra long shaft in excellent working order
– Fuel tank & hose for Tohatsu outboard
– Fitted cushions for all berths
– All necessary standing & running rigging
– Mounted VHF on board
– Depth sounder
– New Ritchie mounted compass
– Removable porta potty
– Original (hard to find) cockpit winches
– Aftermarket winch drawing the mainsail halyard back to the cockpit
– Hanging clothes locker
– Anchor
– Running lights and cabin lights
– Cockpit-mounted GPS

Dinghy is included and comes with:

– Avon 8-ft inflatable roll-up dinghy
– Custom fiberglass insert
– 2015 Mercury 3.5 HP outboard for tender
– Foot pump for inflating & deflating
– Aluminum oars
– Hand pump for bailing water

She is a solid boat and has had no issues. There is a hand pump for the bilge, which is always dry as a bone. We are only selling as we are planning to move onto something a bit bigger to accommodate future family needs.

It has been such a pleasure sailing this beautiful boat the last couple seasons! They truly don’t make them like this anymore. Altair is ready to set sail – as soon as you are!
