Capricorno was built as a high-performance yacht by McConaghy to a Reichel Pugh design and launched in 1995. She went on to win the Sydney-Hobart and Cape Town-Rio races and in 2005 the owner converted her into the ultimate cruiser/racer with new decks and carbon mast plus new interiors fitted out by Indiana Yachting in Italy. She now comfortably accommodates six guests in a master and two twin cabins plus one crew cabin.
The 2007 winner of the 2,700-nautical mile-long ARC, she also explored remote areas around the world such as Patagonia, Cape Horn, Polynesia and Eastern Australia. Under power, a single screw 160hp Yanmar engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots.
Capricorno is now down from €1.9 million to €1.6 million.
