1982 Cape Dory 25D

Fort Myers, Florida, United States
$15,000 USD
Condition: excellent

Second Wind is a 1982 Cape Dory 25D, ready for her next owner. She has been well taken care of over the years.

The Carl Alberg designed Cape Dory 25D is a solid, blue-water capable cruising boat in a small package. This one is hull number 41 of 182 made. She's easy to maneuver and since all lines lead back to the cockpit easy to single handle and with the 3.5' draft means you can anchor in small coves away from the crowds. She has a traditional underbody with a full keel and the propeller in an aperture. The Yanmar 1GM engine is a fuel-sipper and very reliable.

Second Wind is the perfect boat for the cruising couple with standing headroom 5' 11 (rare in a boat this size), two comfortable settee berths, pressurized water (complete with shower attachment), a deep icebox, and a spacious head with holding tank. I have comfortably single handle cruised the SW coast of Florida for many days at a time. The quarter berth is the perfect place to store all of the gear needed for cruising.
