Notes

S&S design #1771.1
This was the third sailing yacht from Chris-Craft and one of the most popular sailboats by this company, primarily a builder of power boats. All were built at their Algonac, Michigan facility. Although, it was produced for a period of only 3 years, the CAPRI 26 underwent redesign in several areas (keel/rudder). Also available was the CAPITAN 26, a daysailer version with a shorter coachroof and larger cockpit.
(Dimensions from builder in 1965.)
