Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

Yup ski. no need to get excited

I was not asking i "is this blue water capable?"

"Island Packet 32, 35, 350, 37,38, 40, 420, 44, 45 Island Packet Yachts USA Roomy & comfortable with good tankage
& storage but some odd features. Continually improving. Good value, exc. company."

"Cape Dory all models * USA All models are well designed & built."

Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

I guess they wre on the list I referenced, I thought I had not seen them. Then again, the group you listed, as they said, is new'ish, more boats will be added from what I can see. I had thought initially they were one and the same folks. I guess not.

Neither would be my first choice.........Then I'm not you, nor are you me.....My spouse on the other hand would probably prefer anything over 40-50' vs our barely 30' boat!

Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

I'm just idly checking them out. I kinda like the IPs. Sure there are dozens of full keel boats out there. I just don't know what I'd do If my fantasy of summers in Maine and winters in the south is even remotely possible. But eh.. looking at boats is better the watching re-runs of low rated reality shows on TV lol

One feature I like is the "bulletproof" steering (rack and pinion) that the older IPs have. True, you do have one leg on each side of the wheel shaft but I never had an issue with that. Its just a feature one gets used to. I also like to reach along at 7+ knots in a 25 knot seabreeze feeling secure and safe. (maybe I'm just a great sailor)
I've sailed and chartered many sailboats and would be happy to own any of several well made ones.

Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

Silly me, Seduction. I didn't look deeper into the site. Interesting boat the 31! Oh and the CD 36 is the one that grabs my attention. Thanks!

Re: Island Packet and Cape Dory 33- 40 range.

CD was a good boat in it's day. But there is no comparison between the two boats, IMO. Other than a full keel, there really isn't much that's the same.

Check out this link for more detail from The World's Best Sailboats, Volume 2 by Ferenc Mate. Great book.

Guests on the IP31 typically respond with the comment that the interior of the IP31 has as much room as a typical 34 or 35 footer. Due to the beaminess, of course. Boat shows are a wonderful way to see them all, and you know that there are "used boat shows" annually in the Chesapeake. Otherwise, ya gotta go look at all the brokers offerings.

$20,000.00 for this one and it is not the only one in that range...

It is a 1984 30' IP sloop.
Clean on the inside too.
Really nice looking boats.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

So is the CD 25D but that's not what you're after.

I am biased, but the IP is a much more comfortable boat in terms of amenities. I think of it as both slower and ultimately less seaworthy. Lots of IP information on their owners listserve (google or yahoo -- I forget which hosts it).

CD info can be found in abundance at CapeDory.org

Mark, that doesn't look like an IP and they didn't make a 30' as far as I know. Where did you find it?
