According to Jane 1918 and Colombian sources
PRESIDENTE MARROQUIN ex LIBERTADOR ex BAN RIGHT (18709
CARTAGENA ex criser ALMIRANTE LEZO ex El Bashir (1892)
GENERAL PINZON ex yacht Namouna (1881)
were sold at public auction, and purchased by US firm of New York and were converted to merchant vessels.
CARTAGENA became merchant vessel with the same name (1919 (LHKF, ON217956, 728 grt, 395 nrt, 191.8ft (reg) x 29.2ft x 17.4ft, 1600 ihp, 20 men). Wrecked off Cristobal, Panama 09.07.1920. I have no owner.
Also I am looking for fates of other two vessels.
