Outboard Trawler from Cape Dory

Cape Dory is coming out with a whole new line of boats. Looks like at least the smallest is OB powered.

Looks like a C-Dory knockoff. And alas, not a lick of cast bronze on it.

Parks,
Looks like an OB cruiser to me and w a quick scan I didn’t see those boats called a trawler at all. They used the appropriate word “cruiser’.

The article calls them "a new series of powerboats".

The one in the picture is a new version of the Marinaut 215. It was originally designed as an "improvement" on the C-Dory 22.

There were a few Marinauts made then production petered out mostly due to the owner's personal issues.

Not surprising, Cape Dory and C-Dory are owned by the same parent company.
Ill be interested to see the larger boats in the line.

Are they?

I show C-Dory owned by Northwest Marine Industries and I know Ruelos was involved with them but didn't think he was now. They also own Osprey, Seasport, Skagit Orca and Tomcat.

Cape Dory is "owned" by Madison Bay Holdings per the report. Now Madison Bay has been interesting in having agreements and managing and options and playing various roles with various companies. They've been involved with Westship, once had a promotions agreement with Northern and had the rights to distribute Warlock and were involved with Summit RV's.

Cape Dory is offering the two small trailerable boats, a 33 and 36' cruiser which they say will be built initially only on a custom basis, and some large catamarans which are actually Powerplay Catamarans, built in Thailand.

Seems like a bit of an uncertain and tangled mess and a start up company. I'm not sure where in Sarasota they're building the boats.

The C-Dory is built in the PNW. Has been for a long time. The Marinaut was also from the PNW. hHowever, that company stopped making Marinaut boats. The Marinaut rights were bought and the new Marinauts are going to be produced in FL (according to the webpage).

People need to read that two sentences 100 times. New company, no track record. New boats, no track record. Total boats sold and delivered = zero.

I'm sorry, but I know two many people who have been victimized by new builders or new models. When they actually build a boat and you can get on it and go for a sea trial, then they have my attention. This makes another company trying to claim the reputation of a builder from 15 or 20 years ago when they have nothing to really tie to it.

Heron,
Kinda like Albin.
Real Albins came from Sweden.
Other Albins are (I hear) good boats.

Yup....Both with their group fans along with Cape Dory. Friend with a Swedish Albin sold it in a day via Craigslist. I have no doubt I could sell my 28 with minimal effort...
