The Cape Cutter 19 Association
The Cape Cutter 19 Association was formed by a group of enthusiasts dedicated to this great little yacht. The design of the Cape Cutter 19 is based on a traditional hull form which has been proved over a very long period of time to be sea kindly and rugged.
The Cape Cutter 19 can be tuned up or down depending on the owners requirement. It has proven to be a fast, capable, brave pocket cruising yacht.
This site is designed to act as a resource for both owners, potential owners and anyone interested in the Cape Cutter 19. ANYONE is welcome to join the Association!
