Caprice bilge sloop, super seaworthy and well-built in late 1980s.
Her eighty year old owner has been advised by his doctor to retire from sailing, so CAPRI, a well-maintained, four berth grp Caprice must be sold, with or without her one year-old road trailer. She is one of the later examples of Robert Tucker's famous 19 foot bilge keel and skeg design. Between 1972 and 1980, Shane Acton sailed SHRIMPY, a stock Caprice, round the world.
