Jongert is increasingly finding success with its motoryacht offerings. This is among the reasons why it decided to commission a new megayacht model. Termed the 42MY, she fits in nicely between Jongert’s smallest and largest power megayacht models.
The Jongert 42MY measures 136’6” (41.65 meters) and bears a beam of 25’6” (7.8 meters). Styling and interior design is by Guido de Groot Design. Jongert is leaving interior arrangement and even some exterior elements up to buyers’ choice, since it’s marketing the project in multiple countries. Many Europeans and Americans, for example, might like four guest staterooms and an owner’s stateroom, with the latter forward on the main deck. Alternately, some may want much of the upper deck set aside as an owner’s suite. Chinese buyers, however, might prefer the entire main deck devoted to entertainment, especially karaoke.
Regardless of configuration, naval architecture comes courtesy of Azure Naval Architects. It’s worth noting that Azure Naval Architects and Guido de Groot Design are also the same duo behind the Jongert 500 LE, Jongert’s largest power megayacht to date.
Further worth noting: the Jongert 42MY will be an all-aluminum megayacht. She’ll meet Lloyd’s classification and comply with MCA regulations for megayachts displacing less than 500 gross tons. (Gross tonnage for the 42MY should be 335.) Power will be supplied by Caterpillar diesel engines, which should permit a 15-knot speed at half load. The half-load draft of 6’9” (2.1 meters) should translate to a yacht capable of anchoring in many of the world’s best anchorages.
