Cape Dory Typhoon Sold

Sold :  "Kraken"   1978 Cape Dory Typhoon


This is one of the finest Typhoons and well-documented vessels you will find.  Kraken is no dry rot trailer trotter.  We sail her 1-2 times per week during the summer season.  This boat has seen exceptional care since being re-commissioned in 2012.  You can read all about the little tweaks and tunes at  Polished Brass and Gleaming Teak this boat gets compliments every time someone walks by on the dock. You will be hard pressed to find another Typhoon as well equipped and ready to sail today.
