We’re in love. The new Cape Cod from Rosewest is a stunningly beautiful open cockpit 24 foot daysailer that hits all of the right notes for us. Evoking traditional European pilot cutters from the 19th century, with their long overhanging stern and bluff bow, we could stare at her lines all day long.
Classic in concept, but thoroughly modern in design and construction, one of her most striking features is the spacious cockpit, able to seat 8 people comfortably. Sporting an elegant, u-shaped bench, there is still plenty of room for captain and first mate to attend to the sailing, while guests can relax in leisure. A smart little cocktail table is designed to be easily deployed for entertaining said guests. This boat is designed for all types of fun.
Other nice features include an easily deployed swim ladder, a freshwater deck shower, and even a little cozy cabin hidden under a large deck hatch for nap time.
The Cape Cod is an extremely versatile boat, with a long centerboard and deep kick-up rudder, allowing her to be brought right up to shore. She has an easily handled blade jib (self-tacking version optional) and a retractable bowsprit that accommodates light air sails.
All in all, this Cape Cod is one of our favorite daysailers to come out in quite a while. Starting at around $100K.
