The 40-meter Islandia is a sistership to Number One. The powerful ketch combines classical styling themes of a clipper bow and graceful counter stern with a relatively shallow underbody. Tony Castro, who is no stranger to high-speed sailing yachts, kept wave-making resistance to a minimum-you won’t see Islandia burying her hull between a huge bow wave and stern wave-despite the yacht’s approximately 180-ton displacement.

Kudos to the design team of Castro and Jongert for resisting the temptation to make the trunk cabin and house resemble tiers of a wedding cake. Islandia is pleasingly sleek in a conservative way.

The joinerwork aboard Jongert’s yachts has been superb, as has the finish work, and the same level of quality should be evident aboard Islandia.

In addition to a fully found helm station in the pilothouse, the area is sizable enough for a large dinette.

Jongert built Islandia‘s hull of steel and her superstructure of aluminum, a method proven in dozens of motoryachts. The strength of her hull and Jongert’s proprietary folding keel should encourage the owner to cruise every corner of the world. -D.C.
