The launch of the 18 meter Jongert motor cruiser called Tommy marks a new step in Jongert craftsmanship and direction. Constructed as a special project, the 1800 is a truly innovative custom cruiser built in Holland. Instantly recognized for her striking modern lines and distinct window layout. In length not quite the size of a super yacht, however the ship yards experience in this area can certainly be seen in the new arrival.
The 1800 not only has stunning looks, it also has the power to match. She is driven by two Hamilton waterjets and powered by two MAN engines, able reach a speed of 30 knots very comfortably and quickly.
The most striking innovative feature is the the large horizontal windows, that grace the full beam owner’s cabin, they also double as significant source of natural light within the modern comfortable living spaces, however waking up to a view across the sea has to be the most impressive result.
To add more spectacular horizons, the saloon’s roof, side and rear windows slide open to generate an exceptional interior-exterior atmosphere, as if it’s one large space connected with the ocean.!
Of course the standard of fit and finish is sublime and nothing short of class leading. The use of classic colour combinations and attendtion to material detail ensures a very luxouris feel onboard for any guests.
An equally impressive feature of the 1800 is the low draft of only 80 cm’s, this allows the 1800 access to shallow bays and coral reefs many other cruisers of this size dare venture, adding to the captains ability to provide a perfect on-board experience.
Tommy is a stunning, one-of-a-kind Jongert Motor Yacht, filled with inventive features and with the potential to become a more widely produced series. We think Jongert have a winner here and we for one would love to see them become a more established player in this market.
