Bought this Capri in February to get my girls out on a lake and learning to sail. This is a 4'2" draft boat with a keel. She points and responds to helm well. The sails are in good condition, however, the main is off of something else, so she would sail better with a main cut specifically for her. Genoa is probably a 150% or so on a roller furler. Deck is solid (no softspots). I replaced the seacock with a composite seacock, replaced the wood step, took apart and got the whale gusher faucet working, however, I didn't touch the integrated water tank. You'll probably be better off either setting up a 2.5 gallon jug it feeds off of, or just bringing your own bottles. I refurbished the tiller the same time we were doing work while she was out of the water. Toshiba (2018?) outboard works well, I think the carburetor was replaced in February. Previous owner replaced the chainplates, added GPS based speed. Has depth sounder, a stereo, and I wired a solar panel (easily removed) and controller to keep the recent battery topped off if you choose to store it on the trailer out of the water. Also has a porta-potty that we didn't use. It has recent canvas on it done by the previous owner, cabin, outboard, winches, mainsail. Scraped the hull in February before launch. Registration was renewed in March. The cabin is pretty cozy. I've had my wife and 2 daughters on board for an overnight. I'll leave the lifejackets it came with on the boat.

I pulled it out of Lake Conroe in late June. Unfortunately, she sat through a hail storm that did some damage - solar panel has been trashed, 4 pin harness on the hull to the mast needs to be replaced, windex was lost, and the marina loosened the dock lines for higher water and let her scrape up into the docks so there are now rub marks and damage in the bow that needs to be patched up. The boat was still dry in the cabin, and she had no issues sailing across the lake before I took her out. She should dry out on the hard from any water intrusion, and should be fairly easy to patch.

Trailer has a 10' extension. Email works best, send me your contact info if you need a call. Text might work, depending on my signal.

I am now out of country on an Ocean Twins 38, which is the reason I'm selling. The Capri is a great starting platform. Bring all offers.
