The hull form of the Cape George Cutter is based on time-tested principles, inspired by the work of the late William Atkin. The long keel / short overhang concept results in a protected rudder and long waterline for high average speeds and self-steering ability. The deep cross-section gives excellent load carrying and an easy motion. Cape George yachts are noted for their strength and sea kindliness with excellent performance under sail even when heavily laden.
The hull is one-piece hand-laid moldings of fiberglass utilizing vinylester-based resins. The deck beams and carlins are of laminated Port Orford Cedar, a premier species for boat building with excellent resistance to decay. The BS 1088 marine grade plywood we use is a combination of Sapele, Jequitiba and Douglas Fir. The deck and cabin structure is heavily sheathed with fiberglass mat and roving combining the low maintenance exterior of fiberglass with the interior beauty of a wooden vessel.
We have found the cutter sailplan to be very suitable for offshore sailing and feel it is superior to a sloop in adverse conditions. For light winds, a single lightweight headsail on the headstay offers better performance going to windward and reaching.
Entering the boat from the large cockpit area you are in the pilothouse with a large "U" shaped dinette to starboard and galley to port. The large windows in the pilothouse provides excellent light and visibility making this cutter the perfect Pacific North West cruising sailboat. Forward of the dinette is the interior steering station with a complete set of controls, again with excellent visibility.
Forward of the pilothouse is a double berth to starboard and settee to port. Double berth is 7' in length and port berth is 6'6".The Dickinson diesel heating stove is next to settee. Opposite is head to starboard and hanging locker to port. New Groco type K marine head (2008), new piston rings 2013.
