There are certain things that a Cape Dory 28 aficionado will ask you to look for. Those would include; The right engine, minimal crazing on the decks, no cobalt resin (ask us what that means), and speed.
"Dovekie" rings all those bells positively. Powered by a Yanmar 4LHA-STE 230 HP engine with approx. 810 hrs. The boat performs well even with a stainless steel cage over the prop. The decks and cockpit look very nice.
In addition "Dovekie" has recent upgrade Fuel Tanks, Drive Shaft, awl grip, St. Croix Davits, canvas, high-end electronics including Simrad NS 12 GPS Plotter & 3G Radar, Lewmar Anchor Windlass, finished exterior teak, dual Racor 500 filters with vacuum and water alarms, Inverter, water pump, custom side rails, and more.
The boat has always been cared for by fastidious owners. "Dovekie" is exceptionally clean and well equipped and perhaps the nicest CD 28 Bass Boat (or any) style available.
