Superyacht tenders and toys on some yachts are so big that they’re bluewater cruisers in their own right. But, not every owner wants or needs a substantial craft. With that in mind, Invictus Yacht and Christian Grande have created the Capoforte SX200. Just 20 feet (6.1 meters) in length, she suits a variety of pursuits, and particularly budget-minded buyers.
The Capoforte series purposely focuses on somewhat smaller craft, to 28 feet (8.5 meters). While it’s not specifically targeted to large-yacht owners who want a tender, the boats still can serve the purpose. For example, some owners and guests like using tenders as dayboats. The Invictus Capoforte SX200 can take eight people out for afternoons cruising along sandy shorelines. For sunbathing, the lounges fore and aft can convert. Additionally, lunches on the hook are possible, since a grill sits opposite the helm console, flanking the passageway between the fore and aft lounges. For dayboat purposes or simply shuttling guests to and from shore for shopping excursions, the Capoforte SX200 also has good stowage. Invictus asserts it’s better than average for her size, too.
Of course, recognizing that buyers like to have aesthetic choices, the build and design team provides them. Request one of four hull colors, for instance: Attack Grey, Blue Whale, Dark Shadow, or Personal White. Regardless of choice, the woven-leather-like seating comes in the customary Invictus tones of ivory, with cognac accents. Nicely, the helm console is a matte rose gold, complementing the cognac tone.
Bearing a 7’9” (2.4-meter) beam, the Capoforte SX200 should put an ear-to-ear grin on you and your guests’ faces on the water. Top speed should exceed 30 knots, while cruising should be most efficient at 20 knots. The boat comes with a 150-hp outboard.
