Jongert signs two new superyacht contracts
By Maarten Janssen
At the Monaco Yacht Show, Jongert Shipyard signed two orders for new superyachts: a 44-metre motoryacht and a 43-metre motoryacht. The 44-metre yacht has been designed by Dubois Naval Architecture, and is a project of broker Alex Krykanyuk. Information about the 43 metre yacht will not be released by the yard for now, but we can reveal that both yachts will be delivered in 2013.
While Jongert was still looking for a clear direction at last year’s show, the two new orders ensured that the yard was well on course this time round.
Peter Versluis, the director of the VeKa Group, who own Jongert Shipyard, was also present in Monaco. His presence was much appreciated, and many of the yard's business relations took the opportunity to meet him. The VeKa Group is active in virtually every maritime sector and has shipyards in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Romania, the Ukraine, Bulgaria, China and Serbia.
Jongert Shipyard recently presented two new designs: the Jongert 500 LE, a 50 metre motoryacht, and the 3000 M, a 30 metre sailingyacht.
The initial reactions to the new designs were very positive. Jongert's Eel Kant explained. “We'll do everything in our power to make our customers' dreams come true. Eel continues; “Jongert will continue to chart new courses well into the future.”
