The Capri 16.5 is basically a larger version of the Capri 14.2. It has a large cockpit and an equally large sail plan. The bow contains a huge watertight storage area. After a season and a half, I must say the boat is a delight and very well designed and made. I've been in the process of incrimental changes to some of the rigging to make it faster to rig and un-rig as I trailer the boat. I am in the process of setting up a National Capri/catalina 16.5 Association. If you have a Capri or Catilina 16.5 and would like to join please e-mail me. I sail the Great South Bay on Long Island, NY with my wife and 3 children. Any questions please e-mail me at the below address. gdr1737@aol.com

I have had my 16.5 for about two years now and I am fairly happy with it. You can take it out by your self and not have any problems with it even if you arn't very experienced. The roller furling was nice and made it really easy. We ran an electric outboard but it was to heavy, a 3hp outboard will push this thing very well. With three big people it got pretty slow and pretty camped. It would work well for one child and your wife (or just your child). I sold it to upgrade to a precision 21 so I could over night and take more people out. Over all I was pretty happy with it.
