Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

From BlueWaterBoats.org :

For those who love the traditional look, seaworthiness and the great all-round sailing ability of a Bristol Channel Cutter but needing something larger, the Cape George 36 may be a great choice. These well loved boats, based on the time-tested design principles from the work of the late William Atkin, are solid, well behaved, comfortable and fast.

The Cape George 36 was the brainchild of Kiwi, Cecil Lange, who had an outstanding reputation as a boat builder. With the help of designer Ed Monk, the 36 is a 1970s fibreglass adaptation of Atkin’s 1930s Tally Ho Major, a traditional cutter with great all-round sailing manners and a healthy dose of speed. Today Cape George have derived four other siblings from the same design and they garner a loyal following from owners, with the boatyard earning a name as the place to go for repairs and refits.

Many are captured by her looks, with high bulwarks and broad decks, a low elegant house and spacious safe cockpit, a gentle sheer and wineglass transom, and a massive aft hung rudder, rare to see on an Atkins design, but a favourite for their simplicity and ease of maintenance.

As to be expected from a boat of this era her lines are conservative. She has a full length keel without any forefoot cutaway that were popular development in the second half of the 20th century, this gives her excellent directional stability, great self-steering manners, and predictable seagoing handling in all sea conditions. Reminiscent of traditional pilot boats, the hull has short overhangs and a long waterline, which extend her hull speed, while her deep wineglass sections endow her with an easy seakindly motion that owners love, not to mention a very useful load carrying ability.

Fully ladened for cruising, these boats are well into the heavy displacement category, yet with a healthy sail area to displacement ratio, the Cape George 36 is remarkably fast, they sail well in light air and are in their element as the breeze picks up. They perform well even when heavily laden.

“The hulls are designed to bring the athwartship sections in very exact continuity, and this feature undoubtedly accounts for the exceptional speed and ability of the Atkinized hulls; for, despite a very generous displacement of nearly 22,000 lbs., and a modest spread of sail of approximately 750 square feet, these are fast yachts.” – Ferenc Mate, Best Boats to Build or Buy

The Cecil Lange and Son boatyard, located on a wooded lot on Cape George Road in the small seaside town of Port Townsend, Washington, just south of the US-Canadian border, was established in 1974 by Cecil Lange, a New Zealand native, and his son Brian.

Lange had gained an appreciation for the work of William Atkin, US designer of traditional sailing yachts in the 1930s and 40s. Of particular interest to Lange was a wooden cutter named African Star that was winning a lot of races in the Puget Sound area, it was based on an Atkin 34 foot Tally Ho Major design.

Lange commissioned designer Ed Monk to adapt the design for fiberglass construction, thereby birthing the Cape George 36. Over the intervening years, Cape George have evolved other designs based on the 36, including 31, 34, 38 & 40 foot cutters.

Back in the day when the boats were in full production, if you were to drop in on Lange’s yard you would see owners living in motorhomes as they built their boats among the company of others doing the same with the factory right at their doorstep.

Lange retired in 2000, and the small boatyard he established remained quiet until 2004 when Todd Uecker, who had previously worked for Lange for 10 years through the 1990s, and his brother Tim bought the yard and began production again as its new owners, along the way renaming the yard to Cape George Marine Works. In the intervening years they have acquired the Sam Morse line of Lyle Hess designs – the twenty eight foot Bristol Channel Cutter and twenty two foot Falmouth Cutter

Buyers Notes

The boats were offered at various stages of completion from a bare hull to a complete yacht. Thus examples on the market today can vary widely in quality of build and internal layout. Many were were home-built and the factory complete boats were semi-custom in nature. Each and every Cape George 36 should be looked upon as a one-off, including factory-built examples.

Lange mentions he had concerns that some home-built versions were not as adequately ballasted as he would have liked. Inspect the teak on plywood decks closely, some boats have issues and rotten plywood can be hard to spot under teak.

A typical problem area was the wood-lined fiberglass bulwarks which was an easy ingress point for water. Typically, the wet bulwark swells, raising the teak caprail which then exacerbates the leakage problem. Over time, leaks can result in rot in both the deck and deck beams leading to expensive repairs. The design was superseded in the mid-1990s with solid fiberglass and later foam / fiberglass construction which solved the issue. Todd Uecker comments that a large part of their work today is in rebuilding and converting wood-lined bulwark boats to foam and fiberglass.

Bluewater Sailboat – Cape George 36

  • Also Known As: Cape George Cutter, CG36

The Bluewater Sailboat Cape George 36 may be a good choice for individuals who like the traditional aesthetic, seaworthiness, and superb all-around sailing abilities of a Bristol Channel Cutter but require something larger. Based on the time-tested design principals of the late William Atkin, these well-loved boats are robust, well-behaved, comfortable, and fast.

Cape George 36

  • LOA: 40′ 0″
  • LOD: 36′ 0″
  • LWL: 31′ 5″
  • Beam: 10′ 6″
  • Draft: 5′ 0″
  • Displacement: 23,500 lbs.
  • Ballast: 10,500 lbs.
  • Sail Area: 780 sq.ft.
  • Year Introduced: 1974
  • Designer: Ed Monk / William Atkin
  • Builder: Cecil Lange & Son / Cape George Marine Works

Cecil Lange, a New Zealand native, and his son Brian founded the Cecil Lange and Son boatyard in 1974 on a wooded site on Cape George Road in the small seaside community of Port Townsend, Washington, just south of the US-Canadian border.

Lange admired the work of William Atkin, a 1930s and 1940s American designer of traditional sailing yachts. Lange was particularly interested in the African Star, a wooden cutter that was winning a lot of races in the Puget Sound area and was based on an Atkin 34-foot Tally Ho Major design.

The Cape George 36 was born when Lange commissioned designer Ed Monk to adapt the design for fibreglass construction. Cape George has developed various designs based on the 36 throughout the years, including 31, 34, 38, and 40-foot cutters.

Back when the boats were in full production, you could visit Lange’s yard and observe owners living in RVs as they built their boats alongside others doing the same with the factory right on their doorstep.

Lange retired in 2000, and the small boatyard he established remained quiet until 2004, when Todd Uecker, who had previously worked for Lange for 10 years through the 1990s, and his brother Tim bought the yard and resumed production as its new owners, renaming it Cape George Marine Works along the way. They have since acquired the Sam Morse line of Lyle Hess designs, including the twenty-eight-foot Bristol Channel Cutter and the twenty-two-foot Falmouth Cutter.

The Bluewater Sailboat Cape George 36 was designed by Cecil Lange, a well-known yacht builder from New Zealand. The 36 is a 1970s fibreglass copy of Atkin’s 1930s Tally Ho Major, a conventional cutter with superb all-around sailing manners and a generous dose of speed, designed by Ed Monk. Cape George now has four more siblings based on the same design, and they have a devoted following of owners, with the boatyard developing a reputation as the place to go for repairs and refits.

Many are drawn to her appearance, which includes high bulwarks and vast decks, a low beautiful house and spacious safe cockpit, a mild sheer and wineglass transom, and a massive forward hung rudder, which is unusual for an Atkins design but popular for its simplicity and ease of maintenance.

Her lines are conservative, as one would expect from a yacht of this age. She features a full-length keel with no forefoot cutaway, a common invention in the second part of the twentieth century, which provides her with good directional stability, great self-steering manners, and predictable seagoing performance in all sea conditions. The hull is reminiscent of classic pilot boats, with low overhangs and a long waterline that increases hull speed, while her deep wineglass sections provide a pleasant sea kindly motion that owners enjoy, not to mention very useful load-carrying capabilities.

Performance

These Bluewater sailboats are amply ladened for cruising and are well into the heavy displacement category, but with a good sail area to displacement ratio, the Cape George 36 is amazingly quick, sailing nicely in light weather and being at home when the breeze kicks up. They function admirably even when heavily loaded.

“The hulls are designed to bring the aft ship sections in very precise continuity, and this feature undoubtedly accounts for the exceptional speed and ability of the Atkinized hulls; for, despite a very generous displacement of nearly 22,000 lbs. and a modest spread of sail of approximately 750 square feet, these are fast yachts.” Best Boats to Build or Buy, Ferenc Mate

Quick Notes

The boats were available in various states of completion, ranging from a bare hull to a fully finished yacht. As a result, specimens on the market today might vary greatly in terms of build quality and internal arrangement. Many were handcrafted, and the factory-built boats were semi-custom in nature. Every Cape George 36, including factory-built ones, should be regarded as a one-of-a-kind. Lange expresses concern that some home-built models were not as well ballasted as he would have preferred. Inspect the teak on plywood decks carefully; some boats have problems, and rotted plywood might be difficult to detect under teak.

A common source of concern was the wood-lined fibreglass bulwarks, which provided an easy entry site for water. The wet bulwark typically swells, lifting the teak caprail and exacerbating the leakage problem. Leaks can cause deterioration in the deck and deck beams over time, necessitating costly repairs. The design was replaced in the mid-1990s by solid fibreglass and then foam/fibreglass construction, which resolved the problem. According to Todd Uecker, a big part of their current work is repairing and converting wood-lined bulwark boats to foam and fibreglass.

A Cape George 36 Privateer is a boat designed and built to go to sea. She has been outfitted for that purpose. The prior owner (Peter Frost: see NWExpeditions.com) cirlcled the globe over 5 years. The current owner just returned from 8 months and over 5000 miles traveling the Caribbean. She’ll be ready to go again this fall to destinations of your choosing. The world is your oyster. This is a tested boat.

A Sep 2020 survey is available at your request.

Privateer was purchased in Canada August 2017, motored through the Oswego and Erie canals to the Hudson, New York and then north to Newburyport MA. She was on the hard until August of 2019 undergoing a refit and installation of a new mast, boom, etc. ‘New’ refers to work done or materials purchased since acquisition. The new Yanmar motor was installed July-August 2020.

Polly B36' Cape George 36 1989

This vessel is no longer on the market.

POLLY B is a well built and capable blue water cruiser. She has been well cared for and enjoyed an extensive refit in 2015 at the Cape George yard in Port Townsend, WA.

Cape George Yachts, founded by New Zealander Cecil Lange in 1974, is known for building hand crafted classics, timeless, bullet proof, and beautiful blue water boats. This is a William Atkins design, dating from the 1930s, that was modified and adapted to fiberglass by Ed Monk.

The Cape George 36 Cutter is a sought-after model for its traditional lines, high bulwarks, broad decks, spacious cockpit and wineglass transom.  The design is a classic long keel and short overhang, resulting in a relatively long water line. You have a boat with relatively high average speeds, yet very sea-kindly motion and supremely strong construction. The perfect blue water combination and a wonderful blend of classic and modern. 

The warm interior is constructed of teak, cedar and mahogany and features a comfortable salon, spacious galley and a large settee which all function well at sea. She can easily accommodate 6 hungry crew. Forward is the master stateroom with double berth and ample storage and a head. Rarely is a Cape George 36 available in this price range. Opportunity awaits!

Cape Coral set final site plan for the Yacht Club; timeline for renovations still shaky

cape george yachts

Cape Coral City Council choose the final site plan for the Yacht Club, though the project is still at the mercy of permitting and has no set date.

The Cape Coral Yacht Club, which includes a yacht basin, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a ballroom, and a riverside beach, has served as a popular attraction and staple for the city since the 1960s but will soon undergo major renovations.

Here's what we know:

Changes to the Yacht Club site plan

James Pankonin with Kimley Horn, a consulting firm focusing on public and private developments, presented the information as a follow-up from a discussion in November.

There the council directed him to adjust the original renovation plans, which included a two-story community center, removing the tennis courts, and rearranging the area to accommodate a parking garage, a new restaurant, and a new resort-style pool.

The major updates based on previous comments now include:

•Realigned, curved entry into the park•Additional landscape buffering at the garage•Relocate the fountain to the park entry area•Shift the restroom on the beach to be more central•Maintain a walkable path connecting the beachfront•Prefer a longer pier and no restaurant at the pier•Resort pool with lap lane option•Provide a “quick snack” food option•Confirm parking counts per code based on uses

The proposed total parking at the yacht club includes 754 spaces: 596 for cars and boat trailers and 158 total boat slips.

There are currently 438 car parking spaces at the yacht club and 113 boat slips.

Pankonin said an additional proposed fourth level for the parking garage would provide an estimated 150 more parking spaces for a total of 904.

The new two-story community center would have 37,000 square feet and include a new ballroom, retail space, exterior balcony, storage and meeting space, and a multi-purpose hall.

Previous discussions  said the project could cost up to $100 million.

Related Cape Coral's Yacht Club Beach is open, how will renovations affect its availability?

Cape Coral Council OKs new design, wants fourth floor of parking

The council overwhelmingly favored the changes and new design, but they had some minor adjustments.

Councilmember Tom Hayden said some details still need to be worked out with the pool and fountain, but he likes the new designs.

He wanted to explore adjusting the length and lanes of the pool for competitive uses and find a way to make the fountain more visible to people entering and leaving the area.

Hayden favors adding a fourth parking floor to the garage.

"I think that's always going to be my biggest concern is to make sure that we have adequate parking and people are not hunting for space," Hayden said.

He said he still wants to see a room dedicated to the old Yacht Club.

Councilmember Bill Steinke asked about the pool lanes, and Hayden said he wanted to see eight lanes for competitions.

Steinke said he views the pool element more as a recreational amenity than competitive, so eight lanes is a bit much for him.

"You are not going to do competitive events in 25 meters, so I think expanding it a little bit for four lanes would be good," Steinke said.

New Councilmember Richard Carr said he also wanted to see a fourth level of parking, with parking spaces for the disabled taken into account.

Councilmember Dan Sheppard said he commends the work on the new design and is for it 100%.

"I believe this will be an extreme asset to our city, " Sheppard said.

He agrees with Stienke on the part of a recreational pool and wants to see a competitive pool elsewhere in the city.

Sheppards also wants the fourth floor of parking.

Mayor John Gunter sees the yacht club as a recreational facility and prefers a few lap lanes.

He also wants additional finger piers on the existing pier location.

"We want to make sure we maximize that access," Gunter said.

He also agrees with adding to parking.

"You'll probably be at capacity day one, so I would advocate for that fourth level," Gunter said.

Councilmembers Keith Long, Jessica Cosden, and Robert Welsh also agree with the fourth floor of parking.

Permitting woes could delay work to rebuild Yacht Club

Though the city is making headway in its vision for the Yacht Club, permitting creates uncertainty on when things can move forward.

Cape Coral is planning to demolish the main buildings at the yacht club, including the main ballroom building, the Tony Rotino Center, tennis courts, pool, and harbormaster.

Previously slated for demolition in late December/January, city officials anticipate getting under contract with a company for demolition within 30 days.

"Once under contract, the company will apply for permits with the City and begin demolition activities," said Cape Coral spokesperson Kaitlyn Mullen in an email statement.

Residents can use the beach while the demolition takes place.

Spokesperson Melissa Mickey confirms that no date is set on when demolition will begin.

Steinke asked about repairs to the boat launch to make it usable before demolition and groundbreaking starts.

City Manager Michael Ilczyszyn said they are waiting on permits from the Army Corps of Engineers.

He said the city will provide information on whether that will be beneficial in terms of time and resources, as they will need that space closed once demolition begins.

"So it's kinda like a crystal ball planning, so we can say go and repair the finger pier and say that we are going to open it, but then it's just time depended on the demolition permit and the Army Corps," Ilczyszyn said.

Ilczyszyn said if the city starts demolition within 30 days, it could take 60 to 90 days to complete, and he anticipates that by May, the city could have the permit necessary to start marine work.

Ilczyszyn could not answer if all the work at the yacht club could be finished within the next three to four years.

He also clarifies that after the demolition is over, there will be a period before construction can begin.

"We are still on two years for the site," Ilczyszyn said. "Now it's just how long does it take to design this and construct it?"
