Duke Sportfishing purchased the old Jersey Devil molds, then modified and updated the forms to produce the Jersey Cape 36. She has a Carolina-style hull with plenty of flare and eye appeal, and a solid handlaid fiberglass hull. Her entry is sharp, and her bottom flattens to 5 degrees at the transom. Diesel options up to a combined 1,000 hp should let her cruise at more than 30 knots, 33 at WOT. Three fishboxes and a transom door are standard, as are a generator and air conditioning. A centerline pod-style helm and pedestal captain’s chair are two steps up from the cockpit, affording a great view of the action. The helm is raised hydraulically for engineroom access. The option list can transform the Jersey Cape into a semi-custom boat, whether through teak this-and-that or assorted chilling and freezing devices. Belowdecks, the dinette is forward with a drop-down table that fills in the V-berth. A starboard-side settee converts to upper-and-lower berths. Corian tops counters in the galley and private head.
