1986 Cape Dory 30′ Sloop
$22,000 USD, Kuala Lumpur, MY
This sailboat can take you anywhere, and in fact has taken me from the frigid waters of Alaska, all the way to the warm waters of SE Asia. Her full keel and generous displacement makes her one of the few 30′ sailboats listed as a “bluewater” sailboat for serious cruising. Cascadia’s furling headsail and in-boom furling mainsail makes single-handing her a breeze. Couple that with an electric autopilot and wind vane that will melt the miles off any trans-oceanic passage.
Designed by the late Carl Alberg, she has a thoroughbred bluewater pedigree. In fact, of the only two boats that crossed the Pacific Ocean via the Micronesian route in the 2016-2017 season, both were designed by Carl Alberg. The first boat was an Alberg 30, and the second boat was Cascadia! This stands as a testament that Carl knew what he was doing when designing these boats.
You will see that I have priced Cascadia well below her market value as compared to other CD 30’s. (Comparable CD30 #1) in order to facilitate a speedy sale. If you have any question or inquiries, please contact me via the options listed below. Sale of the boat can be conducted in-person, electronically via paypal or wire transfer, or via escrow.
S/V Cascadia is a US registered boat, (USCG #1271119) and is currently located in Pulau Indah Marina, outside of Kuala Lumpur. Moorage has been paid for until June 2018, and after that slip fees are approximately $67 USD per month with no time restriction for foreign boats. There are also several other marinas in the area where she can be moved. Popular cruising destinations such as Langkawi, Phuket, Singapore and Penang are just a few days sail away.

There are no known critical mechanical or structural deficiencies, but as with all boats, there are always some things to repair. The following are all the known items that I had on my “to do” list while sailing:
- Anchor light and “under power” light are out. (Side, stern and tri-color combo light are fine)
- Main sail furling line should be upgraded to non-stretch yacht braid or equivalent and cam cleat should be replaced.
- Heat exchanger was repaired in 2017, but may need replacement in upcoming years.
- Speakers for the stereo are poor.
- Lifelines should be replaced within the next season.
- The cockpit chart plotter doesn’t have a gps antenna, but the secondary plotter works fine. However, I never used either plotters while sailing as all my navigation was done via OpenCpn.
- The traveller needs a new cam cleat. (I have the part, just haven’t installed it yet.)
- Gauges for the control panel need to be rewired.
