CIM sailing yacht Taronga sold

20 January 2021 • Written by Malcolm Maclean

The 29.07 metre CIM sailing yacht Taronga, jointly listed for sale by Camper & Nicholsons International and Northrop & Johnson, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Northrop & Johnson.

Taronga was asking $628,260

Built in GRP by French yard CIM to a design by Sparkman & Stephens, Taronga was delivered in 1991 as a Maxi 88 model and extensively refitted in 2017, including a full interior upgrade and a repaint of the hull and superstructure. Accommodation in a well-appointed interior by Olivier Flahoult is for six guests in three cabins comprising a full beam master suite, a VIP suite and a double, all with entertainment centres and en suite shower facilities. Crew quarters allow for a staff of three people aboard this yacht for sale.

The saloon features a bar, a large dining table and comfortable seating area but it is on deck that Taronga really comes into her own, with an expansive 45 square metre covered cockpit providing a great al fresco entertainment area as well as shelter when required. Behind the centrally positioned helm station, a bank of seating faces forward and backing onto that, another U-shaped set of upholstered sofas faces aft towards the stern.

Under power, a 300hp Caterpillar diesel engine allows a maximum speed of 11 knots and a range of 1,600 nautical miles at nine knots.

Taronga was asking $628,260.
