Blue Fish is an exceptional "Downeaster" style cruising yacht with flybridge and twin diesel Volvo Turbo engines(2x200hp - [low hours at only 750 each]). "Blue Fish " represents a rare opportunity to acquire this popular twin diesel American built cruising yacht at a reasonable price. Only 15 of these boats were ever built - it is said that this is because Cape Dory, with it's strict manufacturing guidelines and meticulous woodworking, couldn't recoup enough $$$ on such a "small" boat.

Ease of handling. Rugged construction. Unsurpassed seaworthiness. These are the fundamental qualities that make the Cape Dory 30 one of the finest engineered craft in it's class. Her classic moderate deadrise hard chine hull design incorporates a substantial full keel to protect twin props, shafts and rudders from unexpected groundings. The full keel also provides extremely accurate helm control in tight maneuvering situations, the ability to track a dead-straight course in unfriendly seas and maintain an even keel during the tightest of turns. Power supplied by twin turbo after cooled diesel engines efficiently take her to a swift yet easy to handle 15 knot cruising speed. And with large capacity fuel tanks, you can reach your favorite long range destinations economically and in no time at all. With fuel pricing as it is, this vessel makes an excellent economical cruise at: 1800 RPM=8 Knots= 3 miles per gallon!!!! Her one piece, solid fiberglass bottom means enduring structural integrity. It took more time to build a boat to the high strength and heavy duty specifications that Cape Dory required, but they have shown that they stand the test of time because of it.

The Cape Dory 30 PowerYacht can accommodate all members of the family with salon headroom of 6'-4" and a spacious cockpit of 62 square feet. Safety features abound. Molded-in steps lead you from the cockpit to the Cape Dory 30's noticeably wide side decks with full length hand rails. Your family moves safely and easily between the cockpit and the bow. The helm and companion pedestal seats forward, and bench seat aft, provides plenty of room for the whole crew.
