Classic updated Alberg designed Cape Dory Typhoon Day-Sailor! $ 18,000.
Not to be confused with the weekender, this boat has no accommodations for sleeping, what she does have is a spacious comfortable cockpit for sailing! We sailed her as our personal boat this summer and as with any of the Alberg’s she sails like a dream!
One day we had 6 adults and our Golden retriever out ( this was a full boat ) but she handled this well!
She has been lightly modified to resemble a wood boat, with her dark green topsides, the mast painted to look like a wood mast, wood boom, recent tanbark colored sails. She is being offered with a fresh coat of green Alex seal paint ( the new updated Awlgrip ) and a maintenance coat of varnish.
Also a low hour 4 stroke 6 horse power Suzuki outboard,
and a new custom Road King galvanized trailer, with the full launch package:
keel guides and extendable launch tongue!

My sailing friend John and I had the Hinkley Islander out Sunday and he and I are very impressed with her sailing ability! She is rock solid accelerates fast on the lightest breeze, and is a pleasure to sail!
Jesse was out on his Bristol 32 and we had to keep her slowed down so as not to make them look really bad. We had a southerly wind about 5 to 6 and up to about 8 or 9, so we know the Bristol would come into her own about 15 to 20, but I think the Islander will do well in this wind also! Look for pictures to come, I found this one from the Sparkman & Stephens site I hope you like it!

Sparkman & Stephens design # 316
Built 1940 ( Yes she is a wood boat ) but who doesn’t want to own a Hinkley?
I always have and we should be sailing this one this fall!
She was rebuilt in the 1980’s and is in remarkable for a 71 year old boat!
Recent Beta 3 cylinder diesel motor with about 450 hours, currently not in the boat but ready to be reinstalled.
