Build and Feature Description
'Beyond Capricorn 1' was built to Australian survey standards in 2001 and has many extra features not usually included in the conventional build.
Requirements to comply with 'Survey' include many standard features on a Nordhavn, such as; Commercial Fire control and fire fighting equipment. However there are many other statutory requirements to meet 'Survey' standards that are difficult, if not impossible to achieve in an 'off the shelf' design.
An Australian Government marine surveyor was flown to the Ta Shing shipyard in Taiwan to witness and inspect all construction methods, procedures and design. One of the most important parts of the 'Survey' requirements and one of the most difficult to achieve is the 'Inclining' test and associated 'Stability' calculations. The 'Incline' test is used to calculate the 'Lightship' stability characteristics of the vessel with all loose equipment removed, all tanks sounded and fluid weights calculated. This information is used to establish the Lightship Center of Gravity and Lightship Center of Buoyancy. All equipment, stores, liquids, etc. Loaded after this calculation should be recorded in
the vessel's stability booklet as they and their location will change the ship's stability criteria. Two copies of the vessel's 'Stability Book' are kept onboard.
'Beyond Capricorn 1' has performed well in all sea states and has been safely and successfully operated by two people during our ownership.
There are several additions that have been made to the boat that set her apart from other 57's. The most significant and effective change is the relocation of the tender from the flybridge roof to a purpose-built rack over the aft deck. This has opened up a large entertainment area on the flybridge' capable of seating 8-12 people comfortably. The tender can still be moved onto the flybridge deck for routine maintenance.
Additionally, a 2' extended swim platform has been added on the stern. This facilitates access to and from the tender for personnel and stores as well as creating an area for swimming access and relaxation.
Two hard top biminis have been added to the flybridge area and another over the aft deck. The two on the flybridge are the base for 2.2 Kw of Solbian frameless solar panels The other hard top over the aft deck gives walk around access to the tender.
The vessel was last hauled for a hull inspection and bottom paint in Trinidad, April 2022.
The sale will be a "walk in", walk out" basis. All necessary items to run and maintain the vessel will remain onboard.

Electrical Upgrades
Following a major electrical upgrade in Croatia in 2021 the vessel is now equipped with a full 24v Lithium battery system (4 ea. MGHE24x300) These provide power to the ship via the inverters.
In conjunction with the electrical upgrade above, a Victron Skylla 24v 100amp charger was installed. This charger will accept a voltage range of 220-250 and 50/60hz. This serves two purposes. One the vessel can accept 220v+ shore power from any marina worldwide. Secondly, the ship is now electrically isolated and protected from any shore power problems or earth leakage.
Solbian Solar (SX 144 L JBE) panels x 8 on flybridge bimini plus
Solbian solar panels x 6 on second bimini. (Total 14 panels)
The original logic of the power supply rotary switches on the 240v switchboard remains
unchanged. Except that the 'Off' position now supplies power from the inverters. To secure
the electrical system for maintenance each inverter must be switched off at the unit.
Battery Chargers installed on all main engine (24v) and generator (12v) start batteries, plus bow thruster (24v). The main engine start batteries and the bow thruster are charged by a 3 output Mastervolt 24v charge unit located in the Stb'd. Stabiliser space at the access stairs to the crew quarters/engine room. The generator start batteries are charged by a 12v to 12v DC charger located in the lazarette.
