Luxury sailing yacht ITHAKA, the youngest Jongert sailing yacht currently for sale and the fifth model of Jongert’s successful semi-custom line 2700M, will be presented throughout the Monaco Yacht Show 2012. The ITHAKA sailing yacht was launched in 2007, measures 26,70m (87,6 ft) in length and provides plenty of space and volume for a luxurious interior layout, while still providing great sailing performance.
In comparison to her forerunners, the fifth of the highly successful Jongert 27000M semi-custom design series, yacht ITHAKA features some new and very interesting details. Doug Peterson was responsible for the lines plan and redesigned the whole aft deck and the two outside steering positions to offer a lot more open space for open-air dining and sunbathing in the cockpit. The performance of the yacht was also further improved by a new keel and rudder design.
S/Y ITHAKA has a carbon mast and her sail handling is easy even with small crew thanks to a well thought-out deck layout including captive winches, a full set of NORTH SAIL3DL sails and the 3.05m wing keel.
The general layout of the ITHAKA superyacht was kept similar to the one of the already existing Jongert 2700M’s, although the interior was given a more modern pear wood design to create a light atmosphere. The yacht ITHAKA is able to accommodate up to 6 guests and 3 crew in 3 guest cabins and 2 crew cabins. This Jongert sailing yacht was designed as much for racing as it is for comfortable cruising and would make a great charter yacht.
The Dutch flagged ITHAKA demonstrated superior performance at the Club Yachting Life Regatta 2012 around Menorca this June where she came in second in her class after a close neck-to-neck race.
