Project: Jongert 500 LE

In cooperation with Azure Naval Architects and Guido de Groot, Jongert developed the LE 500, a 50 meters long motor yacht with a gross tonnage of slightly less than 500 GT. The LE 500 is equipped with a hybrid diesel electric propulsion system using Lithium-ion batteries. If desired the yacht can be equipped with fully wheelchair accessibility and/or a lift. One of the many special facilities on board is the telescopic anchor system. This system allows the yacht to be moored quickly and easily in any place up to 15 meters depth. The first two yachts will be built as a special “limited edition”.  Construction is all in aluminium deck and super structure for the 500 LE what is a three decks super yacht.  Top speeds are up to 20 knots.
