New Listing 


Grace was built by Neville Capps of Capps Boat Works of Virginia Beach. She features a large engine room to accommodate twin 800-hp CAT 3406E diesel engines to provide a 27 knot cruise and a top speed over 30 knots. A notable feature in all Capps sport-fishers is the engine air-intake system, which provides moisture-free air to the engine room without side vents on the hull. Air to the engine room is pulled from the cockpit and through the lazarette. A hatch-less cockpit ensures a moisture-free lazarette and supplies dry air to the engines without diminishing the yacht's sleek lines with side vents. ?The interior of the Capps 53 features many custom additions in its two stateroom/two-head arrangement, accommodating two couples or a fishing party of five. The oversized master stateroom forward includes a queen bed, cedar-lined hanging closet, stereo, computer desk with integrated PC screen/television, and private head. The guest stateroom includes a double bed with a single bunk above and cedar-lined hanging closet. The guest head is across the companionway. ?The salon will have a leather settee and galley on the port side. Traveling features include a stackable washer/dryer, oversized generator, subzero refrigerator/?freezer, water maker and ice machine. ?The large cockpit is designed to make a serious big-game fisherman fishing for sailfish in Mexico as equally at home as he is fishing for blue marlin out of his home port. The cockpit comes standard with a Release fighting chair, built-in fish box in the transom and teak covering boards.
