Cape Dory 25 and 25D
These sisters are actually very different boats. One is a weekender/daysailer, the other, a true cruiser.
Cape Dory Yachts was, until its demise some years ago, one of the more conservative firms in the boatbuilding industry. With the exception of a brief fling with modern cruiser-racers--the Intrepid series--the company's stock in trade since the late 1960s was traditional, full keel auxiliaries and sailboats, most from the design board of Carl Alberg, the octogenarian dean of American designers.
