Northrop and Johnson sells superyacht Erica XI

9 November 2010By Malcolm MacLean

Hearing that the 31.7m sailing yacht Erica XI (now Cara Maria) has been sold, I call her listing agent, Ann Avery in the Fort Lauderdale office of Northrop and Johnson, who confirms she acted for the seller while Bill Titus in the Newport office represented the buyer.

Built by Jongert in 1997, this yacht for sale is the 11th boat to be built by her seller and so is exceptionally well thought out. Built to Lloyds 100 A1 classification, she's in excellent condition and offers several features over and above the usual well-built Jongert. These include a lower coach roof for sleeker lines and more fuel tankage for a 2,500 nautical mile range. She also has captive winches for short-handed sailing and a fourth stateroom plus extra head so that she can sleep 10 guests in a master and three twins plus two Pullman berths. There's a John Munford interior in American cherrywood and the pilothouse/deck saloon can be open or closed to the weather.

Now renamed Cara Maria, this superyacht was asking €3.495 million.
