The Capri 22 was designed to be a light, fast family boat with an emphasis on daysailing and fleet local racing. One main parameter in conceiving the Capri line was to produce a very well-finished boat for a reasonable price. One result is that both hull and deck have neat and easy-to-clean fiberglass liners. Another result is that when the boat first came off the line in 1985, the base price was a mere $6,000. The company must have done something right; now, more than 25 years later, the boat is still selling—last time we looked, at a base price under $17,000, including some major design updates (new deck profile flared across the stern, wider cockpit curves for crew comfort during and after sailing). Two keel configurations are available: a fin of 650 pounds and 4' 0" draft, or a wing of 700 pounds and 2' 8" draft. (Note ballast was 800 pounds on earlier boats, but less on later production.) Best features: Her PHRF of 201 puts her in the "fast" category along with the Beneteau, a comp. Active fleets in most parts of the United States can make life more fun and interesting for owners who seek camaraderie. Worst features: Accommodations are very basic, and headroom is low vs. comps.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
