Broker Comments

The 140’ Tri Deck Motor Yacht CAPRICORN has received the best of care in this second owner’s use these past three years. Recent paint all around, Quantum Zero Speed Stabilizers, updated interior throughout and magnificent remodel of her sundeck area leave her in great shape for her next cruising family. Don’t rule out  chartering as an option. Although lightly marketed, CAPRICORN has been highly sought after in today’s worldwide charter market. She is found “in class” and ready to prove herself as a worldly first class yacht. For safety and convenience one should know she is helicopter capable.

Vessel Walkthrough and Accomodations

CAPRICORN is all about her Expedition Yacht Styling, form and function with her respectable turn of speed, massive internal volume and minimal draft of just under 2 meters. 

Naval architect and stylist Paolo Caliari, (Baglietto, Leopard and Mangusta), along with her original build owner and partner of the Proteksan Torquis Yard in Tuzla, Turkey  worked very closely over a three year span to create this unique 6 stateroom  incredibly accommodating motor yacht. Built to ABS Class from aluminum and launched in 2003, the first thing that is apparent to anyone who sees CAPRICORN is the consistently high quality of every aspect of her construction. True to form, her superstructure is planted well forward on her high-bowed hull, providing excellent visibility from the pilothouse and allowing a flight of large guest decks at the aft of the yacht, all of them immaculately laid with teak. They are truly enormous. 

Aloft is a sun deck with a spa pool and flanking sunbathing mattresses in its forward part, a further sunbed on the port side, dining tables aft and custom bar area amid ship with built in Big Green Egg for the serious pit master.  Dine 12 for dinner or simply lounge out in this amazingly private space. The unobstructed 360 degree views will be absolutely amazing and memorable.

Below, on the bridge deck is a further eight-seater table that can be extended to accommodate 12 with the addition of two smaller tables. While this is normally positioned forward against the superstructure, where it is shaded by an awning, it is freestanding and can be placed anywhere on this deck to suit the conditions. Similarly, the remainder of the deck can be set up with a collection of sun loungers or other furniture, thus allowing total flexibility. Although the garage in the yacht's stern will house a smaller tender a crane is concealed beneath the raised deck aft so that a larger 6m tender can be placed here on chocks, if desired. The aft end of this deck is also raised to support the landing and storage of a Euro Copter 130 or similar sized helicopter.  
The main deck aft is also much larger than on most yachts of this size, its 7m length being laid out with a group of settees, easy chairs and side tables, together with a large sunbathing bed aft - a much more practical layout than is often found. Stairways to port and starboard lead down to the narrow tender dock at the stern of the yacht, which is more than doubled in size when the stern door is opened to create a teak-laid bathing platform. Another excellent feature is that, to conceal the contents of the garage from passers-by on the dock, a two part blind rolls down from the top of the open doorway, the smaller part giving a convenient door-sized access for the comings and goings of the crew.

Another practical aspect of CAPRICORN’s design is not obvious at first, but having seen both sides of the yacht, one is startled to realize that she has an asymmetric layout. On her port side a deck runs forward to the crew entrance amidships, while to starboard there is no side deck whatsoever. This design resulted from the owner's observation that, because of the limitations on space in most harbors today, yachts will almost always berth stern-to. The space occupied by a conventional side deck and side entrance lobby could therefore be put too much better use. Immediately one enters the saloon from the aft deck through wide, automatically opening doors, the result is obvious.

The main salon is huge - with a floor area of almost 70m' - and made to feel even larger by its total of 16 tall windows that line the sides. With so many windows, privacy is clearly a question, but this has been solved efficiently by fitting them with blinds that raise, rather than lower, and in this way a half closed blind will block out the inward view but still allow those inside to see out. The room's large volume has been put to good use by interior designer Jean-Guy Verges, whose eclectic, unostentatious style has realized the owner's maxim, “To really feel as if you are on holiday, you cannot have too much formality in the furnishings”. With wide views from the windows, this is a truly inside-outside room, its safely non-slip, grooved wooden flooring being reminiscent of a deck and the warm-toned walls clad with interesting edgeways veneers of cherry wood, while the deck head is clad in a pale cloth with an open, rustic weave. Settees and easy chairs surround two low tables that sit upon an antique Turkish kilim in the aft portion, all good viewpoints for the movie screen, which descends from the deck head. Divided from the saloon only by a settee backed by a sideboard, 12-seater dining table and its bamboo chairs fill the forward section. All this is delightfully accessorized with brass table lamps, shells and some funky glass art from the Israeli artist David Levinstein.

Forward of the saloon on the starboard side is a hallway from which stairs descend to the guest cabins and ascend to the upper deck. Without the need for a formal entrance, there is sufficient space to accommodate a day head as well as a laundry large enough to serve a second purpose as a storage room, while its curved forward bulkhead leads one naturally onward to the master suite. Again, convention has been thrown to the wind. Rather than being entered through the owner's private office, a passageway leads past a sizeable dressing room to the master stateroom, which is furnished with a king-sized bed, dressing table and a chaise longue. To port the second dressing room opens aft, while at the foot of the bed an HD LCD television serviced by CRESTRON can be raised from a cabinet. Very conveniently, the screen swivels horizontally so that it can also be viewed from the bathtub, positioned behind sliding doors in the bathroom, just beyond. This is a magnificent room offering a shower and twin washbasins in addition to the spa bath, all trimmed in a warm and visually interesting pink Brazilian marble.

There are a further five guest staterooms, all decorated in a similarly clean-cut, attractively warm style. Of the four located on the lower deck, the luxurious full-beam VIP has a bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe, while the two large doubles and the twin-bedded children's cabin, all have ensuite shower rooms. All cabins have sate of the art AV systems supported by CRESTRON.

The sixth stateroom is on the upper deck, but its location is not immediately obvious. The design of this whole area, that traditionally houses a second saloon, has been completely re-thought on the basis that a single large saloon on the main deck would be sufficient. So, instead of a sky lounge, this area has been used for an owner's office, together with a multi-use cinema combination work out space. The office, larger than would have been possible on the main deck, has great sea views, with even larger floor to deck head windows. The sixth stateroom is to port, has a queen size berth, writing desk, state of the art AV set up and ensuite head. Two large sliding doors open up to the exterior dining space and aft bridge deck.

Good design has also extended to the yacht's technical and service areas. The bridge is notable not just for its high equipment specification, but also for the excellent visibility afforded from its vertical windows whose layout allows a panorama of almost 270-degrees. In view of the fact that, powered by a pair of 1,704kw MTU 12V396TE94 diesels, CAPRICORN’s top speed is an Impressive 21 knots and enjoys an efficient cruising speed of 13-14 knots. She is fitted with Quantum Zero Speed stabilizer’s for comfort at rest or under weigh. She has Transatlantic range at approximately 11 knots.

CAPRICORN  is an excellent ambassador for her Turkish builder Proteksan-Turquoise, showing the yard to be capable of the highest quality of workmanship, while her current replacement price tag of around US$19-million clearly demonstrates that high quality and forward-thinking design remain available at a very reasonable price.
