The shipyard is located in Wieringerwerf, Holland.
Dutch yacht builder Jongert launched a petit motoryacht recently with an LOA of only 18-meters. She is called "Tommy" and boasts modern lines and current-day appeal. One of the main characteristics to the design of Tommy is easily the generosity of glazed surfaces incorporated into the concept. The hull has been splashed with long horizontal windows.

Jongert 3800SailPower! Having built reputable expertise in the construction of sailing super yachts, the Jongert yard now also employs its capacities in building motor yachts. Two semi displacement yachts by design of Guido de Groot have been commissioned following the introduction of a preliminary design at the Monaco Yacht Show, last year. The 3800MY is the first vessel being built in the new series of Jongert motor yachts. Exterior and interior styling of the yacht is by Guido de Groot Design. This internationally famed designer has joined in close co-operation with Jongert yard, Hugo van Wieringen of Azure Naval Architects and the client. Initially, De Groot composed a design for a 29 meter motor yacht featuring specific style elements of the Jongert sailing yachts. This design appealed to the client, as he has been sailing Jongert yachts for many years. While looking for a motor yacht, it was a very pleasant surprise to see one offered with all the distinctive Jongert qualities. Consultations into the client's wishes led to the considerably enlarged design of the 38 meter yacht. Capable of speeds up to 28 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots, the 3800MY accommodates eight guests and six crew. She is built compliant to RINA and MCA standards. Special technical features on this yacht are the advanced Jongert integrated touch screen monitoring system and the central hydraulics system. Hydraulic power, generated by the main engines, drives the anchor winch, bow thruster and stern thruster, capstans for berthing lines, the tender crane, the gangway and the zero speed stabilizers.
