Jonathan IV has been sold. But we are in close contact with the new owner. This year she will sail in Greenland waters. We can still advice and book you on this decksalon yacht for a great arctic experience
Jonathan IV is a 67 feet steel boat eminently suitable for the special circumstances of our sailing grounds in the High Arctic. We bought Jonathan IV in 2008 and took the boat to Gdansk for an extensive refit during the winter of 2008-09. Although we are still very happy with Jonathan III we needed a bigger boat to accommodate the larger groups or for the teams with a special objective, for they usually bring loads of equipment and need space to work.
Although the boat was in good condition the refit was needed for several reasons. The new coding regulations were for extra safety equipment and new watertight bulkheads. We also decided to change the boat from a spartan racer into a more comfortable decksalon version. As you can see on the pictures we were able to keep the lines of the boat and can now enjoy a view of what is happening around us while we are at the dinner table.
Needless to say, right in the middle of the salon is a beautiful Reflex heater to keep us warm and the kettle boiling.
Jonathan IV has 10 guest berths and will be sailed with skipper and crew. There are 5 cabins for 2 persons and 2 toilet/shower compartments. Jonathan IV is excellent for longer trips for there is a huge storage area for food and equipment. And with tanks holding 1800 litres of fuel we can go a long way if the wind lets us down for any length of time.
Jonathan IV holds the English MCA certificate for category 0 (unlimited sailing). So the boat and equipment are checked annually by a British surveyor. The Skipper and crew have their English certificates.

environment from behind glass as well as outside.
