Accommodations :


CAPRICORNO (formerly MORNING GLORY) was conceived originally with extremely essential interiors, with a strongly marked race imprinting for the yacht.


In 2004/05 her actual owner converted her interiors into a cruising configuration, yet partially keeping the original taste through the prevalent use of composite which gives the interiors a modern and classy look and atmosphere.


The layout features 4 cabins, 3 heads with shower, with crew area aft.


The Owner’s Cabin forward features a double king size bed to port with a sofa to starboard, and hanging lockers both port and starboard. The ensuite owner’s head forward features a separate stall shower.        


Going aft is the saloon, featuring to port a U dinette with table and 2 chairs with backrests on centerline (for up to 8 guests), and a comfortable sofa to starboard, bookshelves both port and starboard, with a LCD screen and DVD player, chart table with communication, navigation and entertainment center. 


The Galley, positioned to port, aft of the saloon, has 4 burners with oven and microwave, fitted to outboard and longitudinally, with double twin stainless steel sinks to inboard, refrigerators, freezers, hanging lockers and lockers under corian countertops.


To starboard, aft of the saloon and chart area, there is a stack berth cabin with upper/lower bed and lockers, sharing head and its shower with one of the two twin cabins aft. These latter are almost hydentical, with separate twin berths and vanity tables. The port guest cabin has an ensuite head with shower.


On centreline, a functional engine room hosts machinery and main systems.
