The Cape Dory Typhoon, "America's littlest Yacht", is one of the most popular sailboats ever built. There are more than 2,000 sailing from mountain lakes in the Rockies to the blue waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Caribbean.
This Typhoon is hull number 845 and as identified from her hull ID number, she is technically the "Weekender" model. In the identification number, the Weekender has a "D" after the "CPD"; the fully open model has a "G" and the model with an open cuddy has a "K"...."
However, in her current state she is a bit more stripped down inside. She does have a porta potty, the portholes on her cuddy cabin, and the correct berths as the "weekender" model, but she does not have the portable ice chest and camper stove; though both could easily be added if you wanted to set her up to do that again. Her previous owners have used her as a daysailer, but she'd also make a great addition to either of the local racing fleets of Typhoons.
The Typhoon is a joy to sail for beginner and expert alike. Carl Alberg designed her that way. The Typhoon's "full keel", with 900 Ibs. of molded-in ballast gives the Typhoon the feel of a larger boat, with the steadiness and stability not found in many larger designs.
The Cape Dory Typhoon Daysailer, an honest uncomplicated craft to provide you with countless hours of sailing pleasure.
The Weekender has the same "full keel" as the Daysailer. Carl Alberg designed her with moderate displacement and ample ballast for exceptional stability under sail. Her huge, comfortable 6 foot cockpit is self-bailing. Roller reefing and internal halyards leading to the cockpit combine for easy handling whether sailing with a crew or single-handed.
Below decks, the cuddy cabin contains forward V-berths, 2 quarter berths, and an area for an optional marine head (porta potty), plus a surprising amount of storage space. She's a great boat for overnighting and weekend cruising.
The Cape Dory Typhoon Weekender's generous exterior teak coamings and trim radiate a warmth and beauty typical to all the Cape Dory yachts.
This Typhoon is equipped with the following desirable features:
