Francesco Vitale from brokerage house Nauta Yachts has announced a €350,000 price cut on his listing, the 24m sailing yacht Capricorno, following a €300,000 price drop in April.
The yacht was launched in 1995 as pure carbon racer by McConaghy to a Reichel-Pugh design and in this incarnation she won the Sydney-Hobart and Cape Town-Rio races. The yacht was then converted into a racer/cruiser in 2005, with new decks and carbon mast, as well as new interiors fitted out by Indiana Yachting in Italy. She has explored some of the most far-flung regions of the world including Patagonia, Cape Horn, Polynesia and Eastern Australia, but in 2013 she had her hull and deck repainted, as well as new carbon standing rigging, and is in excellent condition.
The interior accommodates six guests and features an owner's cabin forward, two guest cabins and a crew cabin. Her single screw 160hp Yanmar engine offers a cruising speed of 10 knots and a top speed of 11 knots.
Capricorno is now down from €1.6 million to €1.25 million.
