Recent reports that Dutch sail and motor yacht manufacturer, Jongert, based in the Netherlands, has ceased operations, are false. The shipyard has indicated that while its facility remains for sale, it has not closed.
Having delivered more than 300 vessels since the early 1950s, Jongert has specialized in sailing yachts, but also constructs motor yachts, including the 39m Guido de Groot-designed Lucia M.
Earlier in 2015 the shipyard was listed on a Dutch website for €6 million, with the price recently lowered to €5 million. It is uncler whether the Jongert brand is part of the sale price, however, the shipyard has a total area of 40,000 square meters and construction space of 11,400 square meters. The listed noted that the shipyard has the ability to build motor yachts up to 40 meters in length and sailing yachts up to 60 meters.
In 2002, the shipyard moved from Medemblik to its current location in Wieringermeet. VEKA Group bought Jongert in 2009.
