Capricorn Classic 38
Bay of Islands
This is a beautifully maintained 2004 Capricorn Classic 38 Flybridge Cruiser. Renowned for their build quality, comfort and style the Capricorn 38 also boasts excellent speed, range and seaworthiness. Weekend aboard or cruise the coast or the Pacific, as other owners of these fine cruisers have done, the choice is yours.
She is seriously equipped for travel at sea with two Volvo TAMD 360hp Diesels. It comes complete with a large 16 inch touch screen Furuno display at the helm, radar, GPS, VHF radio, and fish finder. Her faired bow slices through the water, providing a dry and comfortable ride at her cruising speed of 18 knots, which is well below her top speed. The hull is solid GRP with a Balsa core, sea-kindly and literally throws water away from the sides while keeping the boat light and efficient.
The flybridge features some clever upgrades including a solid perspex window, detachable rear clears, large highly spec’d nav gear and cockpit with great visibility for backing up on fish. The keen fisherman is well catered for; there is a live bait tank, freezer, baitboard, tuna tube and sink. The rod holders are in all the right places on the gunwales, a Reelax lightweight gamechair and electric rod plugs. The Scooped stern design through the hull under the live bait tank/ duckboard keeps the bum of the boat lifted in astern, a proven formula for landing fish
Through the boat there is a feel of quality, the main cabin is light and airy with a homely feeling about it. The interior timberwork is beautifully finished in gloss, from the main cabin it is down to the accommodation. The owners cabin is cosy with an island berth, plus a huge hanging locker with six deep storage lockers, all with their own internal lights on either side.
Grand Cru is operating under Inshore Passenger Survey and there are purchase options for any buyer looking to keep operating as a charter boat with charters scheduled into 2023.
