Victory is hull number two of the three Cape Dory 45's ever built.
Carl Alberg's grandest achievement, the Cape Dory 45 is built to the highest quality and is a go-anywhere yacht.
Victory has been stored indoors and is in excellent condition.
"The Cape Dory 45 is a remarkable yacht built by craftsmen dedicated to quality and reliability. Each detail has been carefully designed from a flared, tapered toe rail with custom polished bronze chocks, to the independently stayed ketch rig, to the extensive chase tube routing system below the cabin sole.
This boat truly carries the distinction of being "yacht finished" in all regards with uncompromised standards and attention to detail throughout.
It is not only the polished hardware, the hand-rubbed varnished teak finish below or the luxuriously upholstered cushions which make the Cape Dory 45 the exceptional yacht that it is, but in total the many small, significant design and construction features which set it apart from the rest of the fleet."
The Cape Dory 45 interior is an expert iteration of Carl Alberg's classic, functional designs.
The interior is large for a 45 footer with 6' 8" headroom and a general feeling of space throughout.
