We've replaced the CD31 with a new masthead sloop CD32 for improved cruising performance and live-aboard comfort.

The interior of the Cape Dory 32 has been designed with "cruising comfort" as the watchword. The U-shaped galley has everything needed for a quick snack or gourmet entertaining. Double stainless sinks, an ice box with 8 cubic feet of space plus a double burner stove with your option of alcohol, CNG or LPG. Fuel storage is in a tank locker located in the "T" shaped cockpit

A navigation station provides ample and convenient space for charts and electronics. The CD32 features an oversized quarterberth to starboard, a pull out double berth in the salon, plus a forward V berth to sleep six. The entire crew will enjoy the elbow room of the CD32's spacious head plus the refreshment of an on-board hot shower. There's also plenty of headroom throughout for those six footers in your crew.

The CD32 cockpit follows the same "T" shape form of the CD40 to provide better accessibility to instruments and winches. Two jumbo sized lockers provide ample storage area for fenders, lines and other cruising gear. The cockpit is surrounded by a sure-footed, nonskid molded coaming. (A teak coaming is available if you wish.)
