SWEETNESS  is an excellent example of one of the best designs of the legendary Carl Alberg, who designed her to provide a maximum combination of comfort and performance in a yacht of this size.   She is a great sea boat with the ability to stand up to heavy weather, beat to windward or track effortlessly on downwind runs, but also equally well suited to gentle summer breezes., and loves to be on a reach. She features a “full keel” with attached rudder and cutter rig which assures stability and short - handed sailing ease. The beautiful lines and sweet overhangs give the Cape Dory 36 a grace that belies its rugged construction. Her interior layout is extremely comfortable and her joiner work is the finest. Comfort and beauty is what is focused on when below deck.  She has already proven herself on most of the world's oceans and is ready to deliver you to your dream charter.
