Dutch shipyard Jongert launched MY Lucia-M, a 39 metres motor yacht type 3900MY. Lucia-M is the first motor yacht of these dimensions ever built by Jongert. The motor yacht line has been developed by the yard at the specific request of several customers who appreciate the design of the Jongert sailing yachts but prefer a motor yacht.
Jongert recently completed technical sea-trials of their first 3900MY, which exceeded their own expectations. Especially the way in which the yacht maneuvers, at all speeds, is remarkable. It’s unbelievable, says a spokesman of Jongert Shipyard. This yacht weighing over 200 metric tons maneuvers like a runabout. The sea trials were held on the IJsselmeer (the Old Dutch inner sea) and the North Sea.
The exterior and interior styling of this new semi-displacement yacht has been designed by Guido de Groot, and has been commissioned following the introduction of a preliminary design at the 2007 Monaco Yacht Show. The 3900 MY is the first vessel being built in the new series of Jongert motor-yachts, with Naval architecture by Azure Naval Architects.
Capable of speeds up to 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots, the 3900 MY accommodates eight guests and six crew. She will be built compliant to RINA and MCA standards. 3900MY aluminum yacht is a typical Jongert. It combines the well known Jongert quality with excellent qualities and technical innovations like the glass-bridge and a monitoring system. And just like the 5200M, Jongert’s latest design in the sailing yacht line, the emphasis is on privacy, luxury, comfort and space. This motor yacht can be seen as the best in its class.
The glass-bridge, unlike a normal dashboard, integrates under ‘one sheet of glass’ all controls, data processors and all other instruments required to manage or control a boat. In a glass-bridge the various parts are built-in invisibly under a sheet of glass acting as a flat touch screen. The main advantage is that al control panels of the instruments have the same modern outline.
The yacht is equipped with several special facilities offering the owner a maximum of comfort and privacy. The yacht’s double master cabin is positioned in such a way that the craft’s entire 7.85-metre beam is used. A huge skylight, which can be electrically darkened, has been fitted over the bath in the master cabin. From his stateroom the owner has direct access to a gym and a steam bath in the forepeak. The semi covered flybridge offers a bar, a lounge and a sun deck. The ‘dodger’ roof above the flybridge is equipped with glass to keep the space a bright as possible, but also with blinds to protect against the sun. At the rear of the dodger roof is a sliding partition that can be placed over the sun deck as well.
Jongert has just listed this new aluminum 39-metre superyacht for sale on JamesList, slated for 2011 delivery with a price of between €17 million ($22 million) and €20 million ($26 million) depending on the final finish.
