The Jongert 2700M BABE RUTH is a 26.7m sloop, built in Netherlands by Jongert and delivered in 2003. She is one of seven Jongert 2700M models and a fine example of this popular and comfortable family cruiser series. Doug Peterson designed a fast aluminium yacht with a powerful carbon rig and exceptional sailing performance. A 3m taller carbon mast with carbon boom and hydraulic in-boom furling was chosen to further improve performance. Bow- and stern thrusters were installed for easy maneuvering.

The deck has been carefully designed for safe and easy operation. From behind the two steering wheels there is an unobstructed view around the yacht. In front of the steering positions a large outside seating area with two small cocktail tables offer a great leisure area. She is easily sailed and managed underway, with mainsail push button, in-boom furling, retractable bow- and stern thrusters and much more.

Built to the very highest standards, Babe Ruth stands for comfort and flexibility both above and below deck. Her great all weather semi-open cockpit can easily be converted into a fully enclosed deck saloon, perfect for relaxing in comfort and al-fresco dining. The recessed tender storage in the foredeck can be used as a whirlpool at anchorage.

Under deck, the elegant and light flooded interior features aft roomy owner and guest accommodation, amidship a large saloon and forward a complete separated crew area.

Babe Ruth is the perfect companion for long sailing voyages even with small crew. She’s a true bluewater yacht, designed to cruise the world’s oceans in absolute comfort and safety.

Broker’s comment: "Last February 2023, we sold BABE RUTH to its current owner, who promptly initiated comprehensive preparations for a circumnavigation project with his family. Every essential system on the Jongert has undergone meticulous servicing, with no expense spared.

Regrettably, unforeseen personal reasons have led to a change in the owner's plans just before the anticipated start of their journey. Consequently, BABE RUTH is now available for sale, offering a unique opportunity for a new owner.”
