True bluewater sailer in a small package. Classic Alberg design with a modified full keel, cutter rig and conservative beam.

Pros:
Cons:

Cape Dory cutter, I converted to sloop for better sailing. Good safe boat but small for a 30 footer. Very well built but heavy. As a cutter it needs 10 to 15 knots. I use a cruising shute and now sail it with a 135 Genoa. It sails better. We have owned ours for 10 years.

Pros:
Cons:

I bought this boat in 1985. Hull number 250. After three years of cutter rig, I put on a 135 gennie. Points better by far. Likes a breezy day 15+ on a close reach and rides the waves like a champ. This is a great sea boat and safe for the family. I put in a bigger engine (20 hp) and a 3 bladed prop and that too made a difference. Excellent coastal cruiser and shallow draft to boot.
