Name: Capricornia
Boat Owner: Pieter Lunstedt
Builder: Jean Pierre Malagny

Built by French immigrant carpenter Jean Pierre Malagny in 1986 as a day sailor for Darwin Harbour. Her shallow draught, flat bottom and good sailing characteristics made her perfect for this role. Restored and improved for Tasmanian conditions by the current owner Pieter Lunstedt, the finishing work being done at the Living Boat Trust Franklin. The Trust uses Capricornia, together with their other whaleboats, Swiftsure II and an ex-RAN Montagu whaler, for long distance sailing/camping expeditions.
