S/Y Caprice was built by the Jacobsson Brothers in Dragsmark (www.fantasi-yachts.se), on the west coast of Sweden, during the years 1986-1988.
She is designed by Peter Norlin for his client Jan-Eric Österlund (www.osterlund.co.uk)
S/Y Caprice is one of the best yachts that has been built in Sweden in this size and top quality in terms of design, workmanship and chosen materials.
The yachts condition is very good and several substantial investments has been made during the last few years:
new standing and running rigging. (2013)
new engines. (2012)
new teak deck, 12 mm in epoxi. (2012)
overview/rebuilding of electric system. (2016-2017)
complete renovation of the exterior hull (today the colour is \"bone-white\"). (2014)
S/Y Caprice has EU-VAT paid and that means that she can sail under any EU-flag. She is now sailing under Dutch flag with Amsterdam as home port.
Her hull and superstructure are built in “Fiberglass” / GRP. Length is 24 m / 80 ft., beam 5,7 m, draught of 2,75 m and weight of 65 metric tons.
S/Y Caprice has two FNM diesel engines of 225 hp each.
The interior is fantastic and takes one\'s mind back to the glory days of wooden ships (see the gallery).
As she is designed by Peter Norlin, the well renowned designer of a number of successful offshore sailing yachts, she is of course a fantastic experience to sail.
