While Swans enjoy a reputation for the best in performance sailing, Capercaillie is also an uniquely comfortable yacht which offers as much fun for children who love water skiing, wake boarding and other water sports as adults who love great food and exceptional sailing.
Capercaillie features three airconditioned cabins including a spacious master suite with a double bed and two guest cabins with one small lower double plus one pullman each. Each cabin has an ensuite bathroom, TV, and DVD.
The spacious teak-panelled main saloon is beautifully furnished and is equipped with a comprehensive entertainment system. The navigation and communications station comes complete with worldwide transmission facilities and state-of-the-art navigation systems.
Being a Swan, Capercaillie is a wide boat and therefore the saloon affords generous space in which to dine, read a book or watch a DVD from the extensive library of adult and children’s titles available on the boat. Or guests might just want to sip a glass of champagne from the well equipped bar whilst listening to their favourite music through the excellent sound system.
DECK & SYSTEMS
Full diving kit is on board and available.

It was a great trip and the boat and crew were great. We had a really special experience. Eva's food is delicious and she was so accommodating with our picky-eater kids and own healthy eating concerns. Capt. Jon and Edward were both great with the kids too.
We ended up finding great spots to anchor and visit, a perfect mix between civilized spots and desert isle tranquil spots. Big thanks for your help with another dreamy trip!
