The Dublin Bay Cape 31 'Blast' that went on sale at the start of the sailing season has been sold.

The ultra fast one design keelboat left Dun Laoghaire Harbour on Thursday lunchtime, November 23 by road, and according to a recent social media post, the boat has been sold. 

The 2022-built Mills Cape 31 'Blast' has been on the market since May.

Priced at €300,000, Hull #35 of the new high-speed was launched last August 2022 on Dublin Bay.

Class promoters 31 North Yachting now say they have sold almost all the secondhand Capes on the market as well as 50 brand new Cape 31s.
