Cape Cutter 19 for Sale in Philippines

 "Amihan" is a plywood/epoxy gaff rigged trailer-sailer built to our Cape Cutter 19 design. She has bilge keels, which allow her to stand upright when cruising shallow waters and beached. Her owner needs to sell for bad health reasons, no longer able to enjoy her the way that he wants.

She is in Sual, Pangasinan on Luzon island, 200 km north of Manila. This may be a good opportunity for someone willing to start their ownership of a very capable little cruiser by cruising a tropical paradise. With a decent skipper aboard, she is capable of voyaging from Philippines to Australia or Asia if that is your home.

The seller's price is US$18,500. She comes with 8hp Yamaha Enduro outboard motor, solar panel, Autohelm 2000+ auto pilot, VHF radio and GPS. She also comes with 11'8" Ian Oughtred Acorn dinghy as her tender. Price and what is included in the sale can be negotiated with the seller.

If you are interested in buying "Amihan", please contact me by email and I will put you in contact with the seller, to negotiate price and other details.

Cape Henry Wedding Chapel

 Ron Jesche built his Cape Henry 21 in the Adelaide area of Australia and does most of his sailing on Gulf St Vincent. Named "Sealion", his Cape Henry 21 fits his current needs so well that he sold his larger cruiser.

 Now, in the times of COVID restrictions on what we can and cannot do, "Sealion" has taken on a new role. This past weekend she served as wedding chapel when Ron and his long-time girlfriend were married on her foredeck. His bride's son had already had to postpone his own wedding plans once due to the pandemic, so he and his bride decided to do the same. So they had two weddings, an hour apart. Names and photos of the others in the weddings are not shown, for privacy reasons.

Ron Jesche is our agent in Australia, as well as kit supplier for our plywood designs. He is also a professional boatbuilder and fabricator of high quality stainless steel custom boat hardware. He can be contacted via his business Stainless Boatworks.
