CAPREOLUS is a Bermudan yawl of carvel construction, mahogany on oak, built by R A Newman & Sons of Hamworthy, Poole to a design that was apparently inspired by the famous Sparkman and Stephens yacht FINESTERRE.
Between 1966 and 1976 she wore the white ensign in the ownership of one Major D V Bonsor who was a member of the Royal Yacht Squadron. Subsequent owners made considerable efforts to bring her back to a good condition but she was allowed to fall into neglect.
Fortunately her current owner undertook a restoration which completed in June 2011 when Capreolus was relaunched after a two and a half year restoration taking 3,500 man hours.
