Dutch superyacht builder Jongert has announced that it is building a 32m sailing superyacht, the first model in its new Performance Line.
The hull lines of the boat, currently known as 3200P, have been penned by American designer Doug Peterson, while Rhoades Young Design is responsible for the interior and exterior design. It features a combination of luxury living spaces and regatta-focussed design, with a lifting keel and performance oriented hull shape.
The interior of the 3200P will feature a 360-degree panorama from the wheelhouse and excellent views from the full-beam owner’s suite, which also features direct access to a private swim platform. There will be two guest cabins, an open plan lower saloon and dining area, plus an open plan main saloon with glass doors on to the cockpit. The interior decor will have what the yard calls a ‘New York apartment feel’ with textured woods and leather panelling.
‘A highlight of the design is the large amount of glass,’ notes Jonathan Rhoades of Rhoades Young Design, ‘which increases the interaction between the inside and outside of the yacht, exemplified by the full-beam owners suite which opens on to the large aft beach deck via large glass doors.’
‘An assortment of exterior seating locations also enables a variety of experiences to be enjoyed whilst onboard, be it dining in the main cockpit, navigating from the helm stations or relaxing on the aft-beach deck,’ he says.
The 32m is expected to be launched in mid-2015. The Performance Line, which is an evolution of the yard’s Modern Line, will eventually include 28, 32, 36 and 40 metre designs.
