by Risa Merl
News from Bill Titus from Northrop & Johnson that the Jongert 31.7 metre sailing yacht Cara Maria has been sold.
Now under the name Audrey II, the ketch yacht has been bought by an American owner in Newport, Rhode Island. Titus reports that the yacht’s selling price is the lowest depreciation number he’s ever seen for a four year ownership term.
Cara Maria was delivered by Jongert in 1997 and was the eleventh boat to be built by her original owner. She was built to Lloyds 100 A1 standards and boasts a range of custom features from a lower coach roof for sleeker lines and sunning to more fuel tankage for a 2,500 nautical mile range under power. She has a cruising speed of 9 knots.
Designed by John Munford, she features internally scuppered portholes and captive winches for short-handed sailing. Her interior is finished in American cherry wood and the pilot house/deck saloon can be opened to the weather.
Cara Maria accommodates 10 guests in a master and three twins plus two Pullman berths. All cabins have en suite bathroom facilities.
