Hi This is a Robert Tucker designed sailing boat, an older wooden version of this boat circumnavigated the world, by a chap called Shane Acton, his boat was called Shrimpy, google it you will find some interesting history.Extract from Robert Tuckers web page: The Caprice was the world’s first pocket cruiser to have fully ballasted bilge keels. She is fast, manoeuvreable and seaworthy, initially tender but definitely un-capsizeable. Either two or three berths can be accommodated in her cabin. The Caprice II was a definite advance providing a more powerful vessel owing to her twin asymmetric hydrofoil bilge keels. Caprices have been no slouches when it comes to long distance cruising with a mark I having circumnavigated (see; Shrimpy by Shane Acton) and many mark II’s crossing the Atlantic. Equally at home cruising local waters.This example requires some work, a good clean of the hull as it’s been on the hard for two years, it’s dry inside but again needs a clean and paint. I have all the cushions that came with it and three sails in usable/good condition.The rudder is missing after the ropes on the swinging Mooring broke it off, I have put a stainless steel frame in situ, it just needs the wood work done to complete not a big job if your handy.It’s a bulge keel, and stood on a yard trailer at Towy boat club, Llangain, just outside Carmarthen. I don’t have the time to do anything with her, so looking for someone who does. Starting price of £200, no reserve.Thanks for lookingViewing welcome.
