Jongert Shipyard will present two new models at the Monaco Yacht Show: the Jongert 500 LE, an exclusive 50 meters long motor yacht, and the 3000 M, a thirty metre sailing yacht with exceptional sailing characteristics.
"Privacy, reliability, comfort and performance are the characteristics of these latest models", says managing director Eel Kant. "This is the new Jongert look."
The idea for both yachts was the outcome of discussions with customers about their dreams and wishes when it comes to the ideal motor and/or sailing yacht. "Our design team, in cooperation with leading national and international yacht architects and designers, has translated these wishes into the designs we now present. We are very proud of the result." The fact that, in the meantime the first orders have been signed, shows that the customers are also pleased with the new yachts.
In cooperation with Azure Naval Architects and Guido de Groot, Jongert developed the LE 500, a 50 meters long motor yacht with a gross tonnage of slightly less than 500 GT. The LE 500 is equipped with a hybrid diesel electric propulsion system using Lithium-ion batteries. If desired the yacht can be equipped with fully wheelchair accessibility and/or a lift. One of the many special facilities on board is the telescopic anchor system. This system allows the yacht to be moored quickly and easily in any place up to 15 meters depth. The first two yachts will be built as a special “limited edition”.
The 3000 M has been developed in cooperation with Frers Naval Architects. The yacht has a number of special features. At the back the master cabin has a panoramic view and borders directly on a large beach area at the stern. The steering house has a 360 degree panoramic view thus giving you an optimal outdoor feeling. "The speed and sailing characteristics are exceptional", says Kant. "With this yacht you can sail around the world. It is by no means just a fair-weather yacht. Reliability, performance and comfort have been incorporated in one exceptionally outstanding design.".
