I found one locally! 1991 wing keel with outboard power.
Well equipped and all the comforts of home.
So I bought it for my birthday (April).
It's exactly the same as my old Capri 18 - but 50% bigger.

Of course the boat is for sale, isn't yours? The boat has a trailer, lots of sails, and in great condition!!

You just bought that boat, are you selling already???
Your just tired of being picked on for having pink sails.

Pretty good source for trailerable boats.

I just learned about the Capri 26.
I've sailed the 18 (for several years) and 22.
I thought the line topped out with the 25, which is a
slightly bigger version of a 22, which is a slightly bigger
version of an 18. The 26 looks like a whole 'nother thing,
I've found several old links to boats that were once for sale,
but not there any more.
Does anyone here know of a 26 for sale?
Preferably somewhere near Texas, but any US boat would

Capri's are built adequate for what they are designed for - a light day sailor & weekender. I wouldn't hesitate to do some coastal crusing picking the days carefully and keeping the weather radio on.
It's got an active class association ( Capri 26 National Association ) and is a good solution for a pocket cruiser.
PS - whether a 155% is overpowering it will depend entirely on the winds in your area. I like a 140 to 135% for lake sailing and winds of 10 to 20 knots.

Capri 26 help!
Hello there I am also A Capri 26 owner, I appreciate your enthusiasm for the boat. Its very hard to get info on her. Your last poat said you were considering getting a larger Genoa, Did you? and if so how does it sail? I am considering a 155% but my fellow sailors seem to think that the 155% will be overpowering her, and hard to handle. What are your thoughts?
