The yacht Capri was built by Lurssen and delivered in 2003 to James Allchin.
Both interior and exterior are designed by Glade Johnson. Capri underwent a refit in 2010 at the Turkish yard Dunya Yachts. She is powered by 2 Caterpillar engines. Which bring her a top speed of 16 knots. Capri has a range of 8,500 nm at 12 knots.
Here you can find an interview with the original owner of Capri. He is a former Microsoft Executive. He was responsible for Windows server technologies, such as SQL Server. He retired at Micro soft in 2007. He is now a professional musician. We estimate Jim Allchin net worth at at least US$ 200 million. But it may be much more, as people in similar positions and experience at Microsoft all became billionaires. More here: https://www.jimallchin.com/biography.
He also owned the yachts Allegria (Hakvoort) and L’Elegance (Feadship). Capri was sold in 2010 to Caudwell.
The yacht Capri was sold in November 2016. She is now named Capri I.
The boat is not available for yacht charter. And the yacht is not listed for sale.
