Cape 65

Just wondering if anyone has any experience or advice as I am considering buying a Cape 65`.I`ve heard they don`t have quite the build quality as Zodiac.But as I haven`t seen one i RL, I don`t know and there`s no distributor here in Norway.

Hi avanti

I have triede the cape 65, and it's a very nice boat, but I would take a look at the CAPE 66, it's a different boat, it has a deeper V in the front and it has an underdeck room for the fuel tank.

But as I said I have tried the CAPE 65 and it is a nice boat. If you take a look at "www.rubberduck.biz" there are some new pictures of the CAPE 65. And the Danish importer have just put the pictures of my boat on the front page

The CAPE 79 that I bought is the first of the CAPE 79 series, so I promised him that he could use my pictures of the boat, for a discount of cource.

You are more than welcome to come down a try mine out. I'm in Copenhagen, I know it's a long drive but if you would like to try it out, our welcome.

Have you seen the price on "www.rubberduck.biz" you can calculate your own price for the boat, might be cheaper than true a distributer. But then again you might have to fix everything yourself.

You can call me if you need any help, I will PM my mobile number.

Regards
Rene

Hi Sean

I'm glad that you have found the service as good as I did with the Danish importer. Anders is a very nice guy, and very service minded.

Like before, if you would like a trip in my RIB, just give me a call. You have the number.

Too bad you won't get the complete boat in time for Isle of Wright

Looking forward to seeing you boat

Regards
Rene
