Cape Dory 30:
S/V Resurgam is a 30′ full keel, cutter rigged, cruising boat. She was designed by the famous naval architect Carl Alberg. Like most Alberg designs, her hull is more slender compared to other cruising boats. This gives her excellent speed through the water, while her full keel helps her track better and remain stable in many conditions. Everything about the Cape Dory 30 makes her a boat that you could sail anywhere. Resurgam is currently operating out of Key West, Florida with Captain Tyler.
Paceship Chance 32/28*:
S/V Nomadic is a 32′ IOR style racer cruiser. This is the largest and best performing boat that Paceship ever made. IOR was set of rules designed to govern racing throughout the 70’s and 80’s. IOR has been entirely phased out in favor of other handicapping rules, but this bygone racing rule produced boats that had unique and often challenging characteristics. The Chance 32/28 has unbelievable performance to windward, rivaling most newer production boats, but is a real challenge to handle on almost any tack off the wind. Although the fleet she was designed to race against has largely been forgotten, there is a real sense of accomplishment when you have learned to master this vessel.

The Pearson Ensign is another Alberg design and a staff favorite. Based on the Pearson Electra; the Ensign was designed as a family oriented, one design day-sailor. With a large cockpit that can accommodate 5 adults, the Ensign makes a great instruction boat. The boat sails well in light and heavy air, always feeling composed and predictable. The Ensign has enjoyed continued popularity through out the years thanks to its overall great sailing characteristics, and new boats are still being built today!
