The CD330 is fun and easy to sail — even when short-handed — because of her cutter rig with a self-tending, club-footed staysail. Her cutter rig and "full-keel" combine to make her stable and true on all points. She's an all-weather performer. The CD330 is powered with a 30 h.p. diesel.
The cockpit of the Cape Dory 330 follows the successful Cape Dory 40 "T" shape to provide the skipper greater accessibility to instruments and winches. Three deep lockers provide ample space for docklines, fenders and assorted gear. The cockpit also features an innovative built-in CNG/LPG locker. Her wide, non-skid coaming tops provide a seat when going to windward.
The interior of the CD330 has been engineered for optimum spaciousness, convenience and comfort. Her large cruising galley spans across the aft section of the cabin. The main salon has 2 settee berths (1 converts to a double berth) plus a large, solid teak dropleaf table. The head is extra spacious with a separate shower stall — features seldom found in 33 footers!
The Cape Dory 330 emphasizes comfort — sailing comfort and living comfort.

Ventilation in the forward V-berth is provided by a second hatch and the berth can accommodate 2 adults and has 3 additional drawers for storage plus supply storage beneath the berth.
Galley The insulated icebox has an Adler Barbour refrigeration with 2 internal shelves. The CNG 3 burner stove and oven is ready for gourmet meals on the water and the dual stainless sinks makes clean-up a breeze. Ample storage of provisions and cooking supplies makes meal preparation options endless, but also provides for quick hot meals even when the weather turns nautical.
Sail Plan The CD330 has a cutter rig with a main that is easily managed with the additional lazy jacks and dual reefing points. The main has a new (2016) custom sail cover from Hardin Sails to incorporate the lazy jacks, and the matching staysail cover was refurbished. The club-footed self-tending staysail makes tacking while single-handed easy. The high cut Yankee on a Harken furler provides a very balanced sail plan without reducing forward visibility. All running rigging was replaced with New England Rope in 2016 and is oversized for comfortable handling.
