Caprica is an rare offering of a 3-cabin, 2-head Beneteau 423.  The 423 is a really fantastic cruising vessel. It ‘lives well’ and sails well, so you have the best of all worlds.  It is a good size for a couple or for a family. The current owners have cruised to Maine and Block Island in the summers and lived aboard with their 2 small children, so it is very well equipped and ready to take the next owners cruising soon. 

The spacious cockpit, access to the water through the walk-through transom, wide swim platform make this a perfect cruising boat.  The 3-cabin configuration has a lateral galley to port with large dinette to starboard.  The two, double aft cabins  provide plenty of space for children or guests. Caprica has the cherry wood interior which contrasts with the white upholstery to create a traditional feel, but with LOTS of light which comes through the fixed windows as well as hatches and portlights.  The boat is well ventilated – another important factor when cruising.
