Cape Cod 896, embodies the spirit of Belle Plaisance tradition. Its neoclassical lines, combined with modern manufacturing, provide the best of both worlds: the enjoyment of Belle Plaisance without the hassle of construction, fittings and maintenance. Acclaimed by experts, it combines exceptional quality in design and finish with exemplary balance under sail. The distinctive design, with its arch in the spirit of traditional sailing yachts, lends a distinctive allure on the waves. This is the iconic, historic boat of the Rosewest shipyard, with over 30 editions produced, half of which are sailed on waters outside France!
Designed to suit all sailors, the Cape Cod 896 is a versatile yacht that can be sailed solo, as a duo, with family or friends. It can accommodate up to 8 people on board. All the essentials are brought aft to the helmsman for easy navigation. A small, livable sailboat, it has a cabin with plenty of storage space and two berths for spending one or two nights on board; “good sleeping length and width” with a minimal level of comfort, but acceptable for a dayboat. Maintenance is remarkably simple, thanks in particular to the optional use of synthetic teak, which offers the perfect illusion of real wood.
Cape Cod 896 is an integral dinghy. It offers unparalleled stability, lying flat thanks to its 43 cm raised centerboard, ideal for strong tidal conditions. This exceptional yacht is also distinguished by its high-performance features. With its fully retractable keel and retractable bowsprit, it offers a smooth, seamless sailing experience. Everything is seamlessly integrated, with retractable blocks and cleats for a flush deck. All headsails are furled: genoa, jib, solent and spinnaker. Last but not least, its retractable table offers unparalleled comfort for a picnic at anchor.
Whether you’re a sailing enthusiast or a seasoned sailor, the Cape Cod 896 will win you over with its timeless charm, unrivalled performance and ease of sailing. All the essentials are brought back to the helmsman at the stern. It features intelligent details for ease of use and maintenance. Transportable by special convoy, she can be launched, trimmed and rigged quickly.
