Ana Capri or Anacapri?

I am going to look a this boat this evening, and I can not find any information about it anywhere. Anyone ever hear of one of these? It is said to be 24' long and it looks very clean (on outside anyway).


I think I am going to roll the dice and buy the thing because I just think it is cool (witch has to go though) and I have never seen one before. Oh, and it is a 1974 model.

Anacapri Sailboats

This is evidentally a VERY rare boat.... all I have found so far is a post a few years back on BoatUS that I cant reply to because I am nto a memeber of BoatUS

"I was with Anacapri Boat Manufacturing Company ( AC Mfg Inc) from its conception as design engineer and vice president for many years. I was totally involved in the manufacturing and quality control of our product line. With the dedication of many fine employees and their "quality of skills" we were able to produce a "top of the line boat." I still have my original line drawings of our designs. The original owner and CEO Eric Goetz passed away in 2006 at the age of 84 I would be happy to converse with anyone about Anacapri boats."

There is some information/photos around for powerboats but there is absolutely nothing anywhere about sailboats. The guy has title and it says it is a Anacapri 24 and there is a metal Anacapri logo on the side. Maybe this was a prototype or something?

Anacapri Erica 24

Went to look at it yesterday. It's full name is Anacapri Erica 24 if that helps anyone's memory. I found the upper deck was soft - I might still try to buy it and try my hand at some recoring work.

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

If you buy it... document everything here for us. From initial pics to the work you do. Rare boats are neat and might help somebody else in the future

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

I am going to see what kind of deal I can make on Saturday. If i can get it cheap enough I think I am going to go for it. I love the large cockpit. After being on it, I really got the feeling I was on a much larger Chrysler 22.

Things I noticed already on the Erica on comparison to C22:

-It has a small flared fixed keel/skeg with a fully recessed swing keel contained within so keel is fully protected if you beach it. Picture is from beneath the stern and looking forward
-Much larger cockpit with tiller moved far aft (love the feel lof it)
-obviously much more headroom than the smaller boat.

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

Well, I pulled the trigger. I now own what may be the last Anacapri sailboat surviving the salvage yard. This Erica 24 came with a lot of sails as you would expect and I was happy to find the logo so I can have it reproduced. There is a main with some life left in it, one of the jibs is just OK, but also a very very nice genoa. Bonus prize is a very nice spinnaker, including the pole thank goodness.

The owner was very reasonable given the cabin roof rot, and I am in it (so far lol) for $800 which isn't a bad starting point for a project boat I dont think. Now the fun , and the real money, begins!

Has anyone seen this logo before?

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

The hole in the water I will pour money into takes it's first bite out of my wallet. Before I can bring it home I had to take the wheels off so I can get all new tires. (The old ones were shot.) Mike, the previous owner, is helping out tremendously!

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

not even a hole in the water yet... oh well, hopefully trailer tyres are not too expensive

Re: Ana Capri or Anacapri?

I got 4 radial trailer tires (rated to 1800# load each) for this side of $283 so they were not too bad really. Other than the deck recore I have to reseal the keel. The boat has been on land since 2008 so it is good and dry. I think I am goign to rust convert and epoxy it. This was a freshwater boat or else it would have been a lot worse.

Bottom 1/2 of keel looks pretty good considering.
