Dramatic Half Million Dollar Price Drop on the 95’ (29m) Jongert LA JOIE DE MER

Posted June 18, 2024 in Brokerage & New Build by Eileen Lopez

The 95’ (29m) Jongert LA JOIE DE MER is now asking $2,690,000 after a $500,000 price drop. The sailing yacht is listed for sale with Yacht Broker Ann Avery.

Previously listed in Euros, LA JOIE DE MER is now available in US dollars, presenting an unparalleled opportunity for savvy buyers to capitalize on this advantageous currency shift. This simplifies the buying process for American buyers but also offers potential advantages for European buyers, especially if exchange rates swing in their favor. This strategic move makes LA JOIE DE MER an even more compelling acquisition for those looking to invest in a top-tier sailing yacht. She is priced well below her competitors.

LA JOIE DE MER (“Joy of the Sea”) is the newer breed of Jongert designed by Tony Castro and splashed in 2005. This blue-water beauty has benefited from significant upgrades to her keel, improving her superb sailing capabilities—now particularly adept in light winds–making her ideal for cruising as well as competitive Corinthian racing.

Sailing connoisseurs will admire the meticulously curated sailing setup, featuring a bespoke carbon Hall Spars mast and Park Avenue boom, rod rigging, Harken winches and a captive main winch, all complemented by North 3DI sails. Recent rigorous maintenance, including a comprehensive 5-year rig survey and work completed in fall 2023, ensures peak performance. Additional enhancements such as a full yacht repaint, new night generator, stern thruster, upgraded batteries, mainsail and galley equipment ensure seamless operations. The forward submarine anchor and aft garage tender stowage maximize deck space, while twin helm wheels face forward to outdoor settee/lounge pads – beckoning guests to relax.

LA JOIE DE MER’s practicality extends to her enclosed deck saloon, offering a delightful onboard experience whether sailing or at anchor. Featuring twin tables and settees, complemented by an interior helm/nav station with superb visibility and protection, this space also includes a bar and a jump seat for panoramic views.

The lower saloon boasts an expansive skylight illuminating a dining area with a convertible table and a lounge area with a cocktail table. The aft corridor leads to a master stateroom with a queen bed, a VIP stateroom with a double bed and Pullman berth, and a twin-bedded stateroom, each equipped with generous storage, hanging lockers, and en-suite facilities. Forward of the saloon, discover a spacious galley, crew mess, engine room entry, captain’s cabin, and crew cabin, all with en-suite heads. Throughout her interior spaces, rich honey-colored teak creates a consistently warm and inviting ambiance, enhancing the overall luxury experience aboard LA JOIE DE MER.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to purchase a beautiful Jongert from a seller eager to relinquish his status as a two-boat owner.
