CARA is a delight! She is a classic design wrapped around all the desired accommodations, proper cutter rig and underbody fit for extended cruising. With a full keel (rudder attached) and draft of 4'9" she is directionally stable, easy to steer and can enjoy cruising areas other designs avoid. Her cutter rig is complete with furling jib and furling staysail, with staysail fitted with a club boom.
The obvious and outstanding feature of CARA is the care of ownership. From the 2001 Beta diesel to the fit and finish one realizes the love and care involved. This is an outstanding example of excellent yacht construction and continuous upkeep and ongoing maintenance. A classic yacht to see and consider indeed!
