The 56-metre superyacht ketch Mondango 3, launched by Alloy Yachts and delivered to her owners earlier this year, is available for charter this summer in the South Pacific through Burgess. After her first summer on the water the yacht will head on to the Indian Ocean, then across the Atlantic to the Americas. Designed by Dubois Naval Architects with an interior by Reymond Langton, Mondango 3 is the culmination of her owners’ extensive yachting experiences. They came to Dubois with a brief of creating a refined version of the popular Mondango 2, the 51-metre launched by Alloy Yachts in 2008. “She has exceeded my expectations largely due to the huge experience that the owners were able to share during the design process,” says Ed Dubois of Dubois Naval Architects. This is echoed by Tony Hambrook, managing director of Alloy Yachts, who describes Mondango 3 as: “A striking yacht that perfectly reflects the vision of her owners.”

The yacht is primarily focused on comfortable long-range cruising, and Southern Spars and North Sails have collaborated on her rig and sails to provide increased stability for a comfortable voyage. The yacht’s large aft cockpit can be sheltered by electric panels for dining under way, while the flybridge provides an alternative alfresco area when at anchor. Reymond Langton’s eclectic modern interior has maximised the space available with a central full-beam owner’s suite accessed by a private lobby and an aft deck spa pool. There is accommodation for up to 11 guests in five cabins: a master suite amidships, a VIP suite, a queen and two twins (one with pullman) – all with pale marble ensuites. On the main deck, a floor-to-ceiling carved leather ‘wall’ with glass inserts houses an integrated 103-inch television.

She charters in French Polynesia and Fiji for €224,000 per week this summer. Following this, she is due to head to the Andaman Sea (Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar) and the Indian Ocean (Maldives, Mauritius and Madagascar) for the winter. The yacht will then round the Cape of Good Hope to cross the Southern Atlantic Ocean towards Patagonia, Brazil and head up the east coast of South America. She’ll spend winter 2015/2016 in the Eastern and Western Caribbean, Central America (Panama, Mexico, Costa Rica) and the Sea of Cortez.
