This is a good boat and capable of being a great boat. She has not been sailed in 2 years but is being cared for by the deceased owner's family. The engine and generator start right up and and both run really well. Most of the electronics are working and she has a lot of electronics.
There is a soft spot in the deck on the starboard side that will need to be repaired. It should be fairly easy as the stanchion bases are not mounted to the deck and there is plenty of access to get her fixed.
The sellers are ready to sell. Make a realistic offer for a big boat and get this beauty back in action.This great yacht's description
In the thirty years since Cecil Lange built the first Cape George 36, these boats have evolved into a family of designs - 31’, 34’, 36’, 38’, 40.5’ and variations up to 45’ in length. Through the years, the methods of construction evolved based on the availability of new materials and the feedback from owners of these vessels around the world.
The basic concepts remain unchanged - the marriage of a modern wooden deck structure to a fiberglass hull takes advantage of the robust low maintenance fiberglass hull and beautiful custom look of traditional wooden vessels.
The hulls of our sailboats are of one-piece hand-laid moldings of fiberglass utilizing vinylester and polyester-based resins, bi-axial glass fabrics, rovings and mat. Nominal hull thickness achieved is 1/2” at the bulwarks increasing to 1” at the keel. A beamshelf of laminated Douglas Fir is integrally bonded and glassed to the hull as a foundation for the deck beams.
The integral fuel tank is constructed next, aft of the bilge sump, of fuel-proof
vinylester resin. Integral tanks are very space-efficient, providing utilization of
hull volume where a conventional tank would be impractical to fit.
The 3/4” thick plywood bulkheads are installed next, sandwiching 1/2” pvc foam
between the bulkhead and the hull surface to prevent “hard spots’ of localized stress. The BS 1088 (Lloyd’s standard) marine grade plywood used is the construction of our boats is a combination of Sapele, Jequitiba and Douglas Fir.
After glassing the bulkheads to the solid layup glass hull, 1/2” pvc insulation foam is
bonded to the hull from chain locker to lazarette and overlaid with fiberglass rovings and
mat. The purpose of this is twofold: not only does it protect the interior of the hull from
condensation, it allows anchoring cabinetry framing to the inside of the hull using
screws driven through this inner glass layer in conjunction with epoxy resin adhesives.
The deck The deck beams and carlins are of laminated Port Orford or Alaska Yellow Cedar, premier species for boat building with excellent resistance to decay. The bulwarks, part of the hull itself, are built up with solid fiberglass to a thickness of 1 1/4” above the deck. The deck and cabin structure is heavily sheathed with fiberglass mat and rovings, from bulwark to bulwark encapsulating the entire deck structure.
Cape George Cutters feature substantial bowsprits to maximize sail area and
take full advantage of the cutter rig’s versatility. This is a seaworhty bowsprit
with a sturdy teak platform for a safe, solid footing under all conditions.
Combined with a 30” tall pulpit and stanchion system built from 1 1/4” 316
alloy stainless tubing, it becomes an extension of the foredeck. Anchor
handling is simplified as well, allowing tidy stowage of two anchors astride
The chainplates on our boats bolt to the inside of the 1 1/4” thick solid
fiberglass bulwarks with no thru-deck penetrations. This feature provides
the best rig geometry with no worries of leaks through the deck.
All of the deck hardware on our boats is built in-house, of 316 alloy stainless
steel, tig welded and hand polished to a mirror finish. Not only is the look
fantastic, mirror polishing resists corrosion and staining better in a salt water
environment for reduced long term maintenance.
