Jongert's 'Ithaka' joins sailing contingent at Monaco
The fifth model of Jongert’s semi-custom line, she is also the youngest Jongert sailing yacht currently for sale.
Ithaka offers ample space and volume alongside impressive sailing performance. The fifth of the Jongert 27m semi-custom design series features new details too in comparison to her predecessors.
Launched in 2007, she was redesigned by US designer Doug Peterson who altered the whole aft deck and the two outside steering positions to offer more space for open-air dining and sunbathing in the cockpit. The performance of the yacht was also improved with a new keel and rudder design.
Ithaka has a carbon mast, and is designed to be easily sailed with the assistance of just a skeleton crew. Her considered deck layout includes captive winches, a full set of North Sail3DL sails and the 3.05m wing keel. While the general layout was kept similar to the one of the already existing Jongert 27m range, the interior was given a more modern pear wood design to create a light atmosphere. She sleeps six guests and three crew in three guest cabins and two crew cabins.
Designed as much for racing as for comfortable and ‘convivial cruising’, Dutch flagged Ithaka showed her mettle this summer. She came in second in her class at the Club Yachting Life Regatta 2012 around Minorca this June after a ‘neck-and-neck’ race to the finish.
Dahm international will be welcoming interested clients on Quai Jarlan at their stand QJ16 and on board Ithaka.
