Below, the accommodations are complete for a couple. The V-berth is forward, which converts to a dinette, sleeps two with an insert, and there’s a hanging locker and shelf space. The head compartment is to port, amidships, and it’s arranged with a marine head, sink and shower. The compact cruising galley to starboard has a stove, an under-the-counter refrigerator and a sink with pressure water. Cape Dory was known for its joinery work, and there’s lots of teak below, giving the boat a traditional look. The two step companionway brings you to the open cockpit which is covered by full length custom hardtop. The helm station is to starboard, which makes for good sightlines. There’s a pedestal seat, with a companion to port, a full console for gauges and electronics. At the stern is a custom upholstered bench with cushions and custom toolbox.
