Anyone know anything about Capricorn boats? Never heard of them but the hull is kind of cool looking.

I knew that they made mono's but not a Cat so this one might be a rarity like the ad says.

CIP had made a few copies of this hull too with different cowls. If I am not mistaken Offshore Models may have made a couple of these cats too. They are a high profile (tall) hull and despite their size they are a little tight for motor placement (like most cats).

Nice paint though.
