JFA catamaran Rose of Jericho sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26 metre catamaran sailing yacht Rose of Jericho, listed for sale by William Bishop at Yachting Partners International, has been sold with Nicolas Valin at Neo Yachting introducing the buyer.
Built in epoxy composite by French yard JFA to a design by Joubert Nivelt, Rose of Jericho was delivered in 2004 and had a comprehensive interior and mechanical refit in 2012 with her hull repainted in 2016. Accommodation is for six guests in three double cabins including a master suite and all have full en-suite facilities. In addition, there are quarters for two crew.
A cosy lounge area in the 11.9 metre wide saloon is fully carpeted and is furnished with settees, occasional chairs, a bar and an entertainment centre including a large plasma screen television. Al fresco entertaining and dining is catered for on a large aft deck, offering two tables and upholstered seating to port and starboard.
Rose of Jericho has proven herself a successful long range yacht with a round the world voyage, sailing with a crew of only two. The transpacific portion of the voyage was recorded with an average speed of 14 knots. An experienced sailing yacht owner has kept her in immaculate condition with continued capital investment throughout to ensure she is perfectly equipped for extensive and challenging offshore cruising.
She offers a large, stable platform for cruising and has proved to be a successful charter yacht while, under power, two 150hp Yanmar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of nine knots.
Rose of Jericho was asking €2,300,000.
