Madame Caprice | 1971 C&C 43

Oakville, ON, CA


Madame Caprice is one of those incredible 'once in a lifetime' yachts that defy adequate description. The legendary C&C 43s built by Bruckmann are outstandingly strong, powerful, fast boats. They love to sail.

Built in 1971 she was rebuilt and refit from 2003 -to 2007 and substantially completed in 2011. This is essentially a new boat never used and built as an example of what can be done with over 7000 hours of craftsmanship in the total refit to the bare bones. ' Iconic' is perhaps the best summation of this thoroughbred offshore racer's metamorphosis into a luxury racer/cruiser. She looks and is as new in every aspect is complete and upgraded in every detail and will draw admiration in every harbour. Since the major portion of the rebuild Mme Caprice has been a showpiece for the potential of these yachts to be restored and custom suited to their owners specific requirements and taste. Always freshwater sailed this lovely lady is equipped to sail anywhere with speed and grace.

 More Information


As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
