Bewildered is a Cape North 43 center cockpit cutter rig sloop, built by Cape Yachts of Hong Kong, an adaptation of noted American naval architect Ted Brewer’s successful Black Velvet design. She has a 3/4 keel with the ‘Brewer Bite’ cutout, one of Brewer’s signature design features. It was a clever way of adding some of the windward sailing advantage of a fin keel boat to a cruising boat’s full keel. At the same time, the “Brewer Bite” offers protection for the prop — an important feature for a cruising boat — just as you would see in a full keel design. With this design, Brewer created a very comfortable and dry sailing hull.
The yacht is of a scantling rarely found in popular production yachts today considered Mono Construction with a full glassed hull to deck joint.
Throughout the boat but particularly below decks, the craftsmanship is more indicative of a custom-built yacht and very expensive to recreate, today. The interior is finished in varnished teak and pastel colours that is expertly fitted. The full headroom main cabin is spacious and well-appointed offering comfortable seating for six . The cabinets have teak framed with opening Teak panels and Seashores cut-outs. With windows, companion ways and eleven(11) opening ports plus three(3) overhead hatches (Two(2) added by current owner) the open cabin design allows ample light and ventilation throughout.
The yacht has been refitted over the current ownership which included sealing interior hull structure with epoxy, external osmosis protection system. Interior changes in the main salon, galley, passageway and after head compartment.
