Turquoise explorer yacht Capricorn sold
by Chris Jefferies
The 42.7 metre expedition motor yacht Capricorn, listed for sale by Bill Titus at Northrop & Johnson, is sold with Moran Yacht & Ship and Rick Obey & Associates representing the buyer.
Built in aluminium by Turkish yard Turquoise and delivered in 2002 under her original name Cameleon B, this superyacht was renamed by her new owner in January 2013, when she became Capricorn. She was refitted in 2013, when she was repainted and given a new helicopter pad, a redesigned lounge and zero-speed stabilisers.
With naval architecture by Internaval and Serge Cutolo and design by Paolo Caliari, Capricorn is a bold looking yacht. An 8.53 metre beam means that she benefits from a light-filled interior, large windows offering private panoramic views and an open floor plan that creates flowing spaces with a luxurious and comfortable atmosphere.
But one of her most appealing features is her moderate draft (at 1.85 metres), which means she can explore shallow cruising grounds like the Bahamas easily.
Capricorn can accommodate up to 12 guests in six suites with en-suite facilities. This superyacht makes the most of her deck space, boasting a Jacuzzi, barbecue, a swim platform, beach club and plenty of room on her bridge deck for al fresco dining or lounging in the sun.
A popular luxury yacht for charter, Capricorn also comes with a huge array of superyacht toys including wave runners, kayaks, paddleboards, wake boards, waterskis, a floating trampoline and scuba sets. And if guests aren’t tempted by water sports, they can be entertained with the disco lights, fog machine, musical instruments or the full cinema capability in the main saloon.
Capricorn was asking $7,200,000.
