Northrop & Johnson has reduced the price of 42.5m Capricorn by $1 million, giving her a new asking price of $8.95 million. She is currently based in Fort Lauderdale, whilst chartering on and off in the Bahamas.
Capricorn is a tri-deck motoryacht built entirely of aluminium by Turkish shipyard Proteksan Turquoise and was launched in 2002. The naval architecture was completed by Internaval and the exterior design work was completed by Sergio Cutolo and Paolo Caliari.
Capricorn can accommodate 12 guests over a six-cabin layout, comprising a full-beam master cabin that is forward on the main deck, four double cabins (including a VIP) on the lower deck level, and an additional VIP cabin on the bridge deck. The interior styling is the product of Jean Guy Verges.
“The floor-to-ceiling windows in the salon and the master cabin are a highlight of the boat’s features. There is nothing cooler than hanging out inside a boat when it feels like you could be outside underway”, commented listing broker Bill Titus.
She underwent a refit in 2013, which included a repaint of all exterior surfaces, new teak decking, zero-speed stabiliser maintenance, and a redesign of the bridge and lounging decks, including a raised deck that is suitable for helicopter operations.
Capricorn is fitted with two 1704kW MTU 12V 396 TE94 engines, with approximately 2,285 on both, which is very low for a vessel of this calibre. Her operation has been primarily for private use, with usage concentrated to short cruises in the Mediterranean and an extended period of no operation at all.
She is one of few yachts currently registered as available at the new Watson Island location at the Miami Boat Show this year.
