Capricia - Design 1645

This big yawl was built by Bengt Plym of Sweden. This seems to be a very popular builder during the '60s for S&S boats. This beauty was launched in 1963. It is a very nice layout. I really like the bench seat on the aft end of the deckhouse. The boat looks finished to an exceptionally high standard. The fantastic images from Beken of Cowes also help.

Here are the plans.

I thought you might enjoy some interior images. Here they are.

Here are some detailed images of the deck.

And finally here's an old article about the boat. Double click for readable view.

Capricia is now a sail training vessel for the Italian Navy. She was donated by her second owner, Mr. Gianni Agnelli. She makes her home port at the Arsenale Marine Militare at La Spezia, Italy. She is a regular in the Mediterranean Classic Regatta circuit.
