Dutch superyacht builder Jongert Shipyard has launched the 39m (128ft) Lucia-M, a type 3900MY yacht and the largest motoryacht ever built by Jongert.

The fast semi-displacement aluminium yacht was commissioned by a German hotel developer.

Jongert has built 325 sailing yachts in the past 57 years. The 3900MY, building number 429, is the first large motoryacht.

The 3900MY was developed at the request of several clients who appreciate the design of Jongert’s sailing yachts, but who would prefer motoryachts.

In addition to the 3900MY, a 2400MSY will also be launched this year.

“Business is going well,” said general manager Folkert Brongers in a statement. “Last year, shortly after the relaunch of activities by the new management, a foreign customer placed the order for this sailing yacht.”

A consortium of businesses acquired Jongert in June 2009 after the yard went into receivership in May 2009.
