Puffin is a well-appointed Cape Dory 31. The 31 features one of designer Carl Alberg’s most innovative interiors, with the head aft to port by the companion way with the galley opposite on the starboard side. This makes for a very roomy main cabin and forward stateroom.
The cabin of Puffin is richly finished in varnished “rubbed effect” teak and has a teak and holly cabin sole with white overheads. There are 8 opening bronze ports, 2 overhead Bomar hatches, clock and barometer and cabin fan. Overhead and bulkhead lights as well as gimbaled oil lamps provide good lighting throughout. Main cabin personal lighting lamps have upgraded dimmer switches. Tan Ultra leather settee cushions provide a warm spacious feel.
The Cape Dory 31 was designed and built for extended voyaging. Her “full keel” with attached rudder adds to her stability, while her self-tending club footed staysail reduces windward sailing to effortless tacks.
Puffin is a beautifully upgraded vessel and a nice example of the model. The owners have clearly doted on her, with top flight maintenance and thoughtful improvements throughout. She comes equipped with many nice additions and appears ready to take her new owners anywhere.
