The Sunward 48 is a bulletproof heavy duty, relatively shoal draft quality built commodious cruiser designed by one of yachting's legendary design teams, Sparkman and Stephens. Capricious has been maintained by the same loving owner for over thirty years and has been operated as a high end crewed charter vessel or many years. In recent times she has been sailed seasonally as a private vessel and in September of 2017 was damaged Hurricane Irma while she was in storage on land in the BVI. She lost her mizzen mast and sustained some other rigging damage as well as some damage to woodwork and hull. The woodwork and hull has been repaired and the mizzen mast cleared off, but the main mast will still needs some work. However, this yacht represents a fine opportunity to acquire and very well made semi-custom vessel capable of long distance sailing or an air BNB style charter situation.
