Notes

We've heard from a man who tried to sail one to Hawaii. Update: Apparently someone was successful as we've heard one is for sale in Honolulu (10 Feb. 2019).

According to a former Capital Yachts employee, only 3-4 were ever built. (all with a fixed keel)
The photo above was sent in by Chris Woodyard. It is the Newport 20 "Muckraker" which is still active in Long Beach, CA. (21 March, 2018). Also thanks to Vane Rhead for sharing the above "For Sale" update.
