Jongert Sailing Yacht Mbolo For Sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 29 metre sailing yacht Mbolo has been listed for sale by Marc Haendle at Camper & Nicholsons International.
Built in aluminium by Dutch yard Jongert to a design by Tony Castro, she was delivered in 2004 and was awarded ‘Best Sailing Yacht’ in the category for sailing yachts up to 40m in length by ShowBoats International in that year. Her interior, designed by Peter Sijm, can accommodate seven guests across three cabins. She boasts a generous and luxurious full-beam master suite and two twin guest cabins of an equal standard. All cabins are en suite and have a modern, bright ‘penthouse’ style. One guest cabin is convertible between a twin and double configuration, and has an additional Pullman bunk. A crew of three can also be accommodated aboard this yacht for sale.
Her upper deckhouse has an elegant saloon, dining area and helm, while her exterior deck boasts a Jacuzzi spa tub forward, a sheltered sunbathing area behind the cockpit and a swim platform. On the foredeck, a 2012 Williams turbojet 385 tender is stowed and Mbolo has ample space for a collection of water toys.
Over the last three years a significant amount of work has been done and the most recent refit included new sails, an overhaul of the rig, winches and Reckmann furlers, and new antifouling applied to the hull. Under power, her top speed is 12.2 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 1,450 nautical miles at 8 knots with power coming from a 262hp Caterpillar 3126 diesel engine.
Mbolo is asking €2,800,000.
