A spokesperson from Jongert has denied the doors of the shipyard are closed, stating "the shipard is open". An insider told Boat International yesterday that employees had been sent home. However, a spokesperson today told us that isn't true, stating "the phone is being picked up every day and there are people working here".
"We acknowledge that the future of Jongert is somewhat uncertain at this moment, but the shipyard is still open," they said.
We now understand service jobs are continuing to be carried out for the Jongert fleet and two patrol vessels that were recently launched are being finished. The team is also actively working with new enquiries, according to the statement.
