The Best Of Boat WorldsTM

Here’s a lovely example of one of our very favorite little daysailers, the Cape Dory Typhoon Senior. The Typhoon Senior, is, you guessed it, the larger sibling to the classic Typhoon and was built between 1984 and 1987, with a total run of only 57. Like the Typhoon, The Senior was designed by the legendary Carl Alberg. Like many of the Cape Dory’s Alberg designed, the 22 foot Typhoon Senior has a full-keel and is known for being ruggedly built and easy to sail in heavy weather, with a ballast of 1,700 pounds.

 

 

Like other Cape Dory’s, she features just the right amount of teak – enough to make you swoon but not enough to kill you when it’s maintenance time – and bronze fittings throughout.

One of our favorite things about the Senior is the built-in motor well that keeps the outboard (none included with the sail of this boat) out of eyesight but within a natural and easy reach to the pilot at the helm.

This example comes with two sets of North Sails, one new. Full interior and cockpit cushions, depth sounder and compass, and a dual battery set up.

 

 

Owner claims her to be in excellent condition, with a smooth and blister-free bottom and from the few photos provided she certainly seems like she’s ready to go.

Located in Southport, North Carolina at 11K.
