Caprice MkIII – Year of manufacture believed to be 1972, she is a 50 year old boat so the condition reflects this but having said that she is a clean and tidy boat for her age. She has been painted several times over the years. Bilge keels with skeg hung rudder, this has been repaired/reinforced using kevlar matting and West One Epoxy. All the bilges and lockers have been painted with bilge paint so boat is very clean and the interior has been lined with light grey fabric. Cushions are the original orange vinyl (an acquired taste you’ll get used to – I like to think it complements the grey).She is located ashore in Four Marks, Hants – GU34 and comes with a double axle trailer which is serviceable. This boat has been standing for 3 years so I can’t verify the condition of the brakes, tyres and bearings so I wouldn’t advise to plan to tow this any distance without a full trailer service. I could assist with loading onto another trailer with possible access to a local farmers telehandler, there would be a cost for this.She is a very cosy pocket cruiser, will sleep 3 at a pinch, I used her on the broads with usually just the two of us, a perfect budget weekend / day sailer.• Full set of sails• Mast, boom, full standing rigging, main sheet and headsail sheets, sail battens• 12 Electrics includingo Leisure Batteryo 10W solar panelo Led lightingo Navigation lightso Cigar lighter / USB sockets x2o Automatic bilge pumpo TARGET – Depth Soundero TARGET – Speed Log• Outboard bracket • Pushpit, Pulpit, Stanchions and Lifelines• Custom made cockpit dodgers• x2 Fire Extinguishers• Steering Compass• Manual Bilge Pump• Camping stove – gas• Porta Potti• Double Axle trailer• Tabernacle with ‘A’ for mast loweringBella just needs a coat of anti-fouling and is then ready to be launched and used, or you could spend further time tidying. All you would need is an outboard, warps, fenders and lifejackets.She is a solid sea going pocket cruiser – a similar boat circumnavigated the globe in the 70’s in a boat called ‘Shrimpy’ by Shane Acton.£100 Paypal deposit required from winning bidder with balance due on collection – cash or BACs transfer on the day.
