The 56.4m (185.1ft) MONDANGO 3 is a ketch-rigged, world-girdling sailing yacht commissioned by an experienced and knowledgeable owner who wanted a refined version of his previous yacht, building in thousands of miles of blue water sailing experience to create the ultimate luxury cruiser.
Once again the expertise of Alloy Yachts of West Auckland, New Zealand, was selected to construct the yacht, Dubois Naval Architects undertook the exterior design and engineering and Reymond Langton was at its spectacularly creative best when designing the uniquely characterful interior.
Her 60sqm flybridge has a lounge area with removable biminis aft of the helm stations and sun loungers aft around the mizzen mast.
Her main deck has a large flush foredeck with hatches beneath which her two tenders are stowed.
There is a deck jacuzzi in the aft deck and the transom folds down hydraulically to create a swimming platform, adjacent to her telescopic passerelle.
A huge cockpit lounge and dining area with exceptional wraparound views has sliding glass screens that can close off the space for full climate control.
Sliding glass doors open onto a saloon area with excellent views through large picture windows.
Blinds lower to create an indoor cinema with a 103in TV built into a leather-clad divider forward, which separates the lounge from the formal dining area.
A wonderfully sculpted staircase just inside the sliding glass doors leads down to the full beam owner's suite with a green marble bathroom to port.
A passage with curved and decorated bulkheads leads aft to two double cabins to port and two twins to starboard, completing versatile accommodation for 10 guests. She is also home to up to 10 crew.
As you might expect of a yacht commissioned by an owner with so much blue water experience, her easily driven hull form was designed by Dubois primarily for comfort underway but she also delivers thrilling performance. To windward a centreboard keeps her tracking well and it lifts to reduce her draft to just 4m (13.1ft), opening up lagoons, anchorages and harbours closed to large fixed-keel yachts.
MONDANGO 3 comes to market following her five-year Lloyd's survey during which main and mizzen were unstepped so that spars, furling booms and standing rigging could be serviced and inspected. During the works the hull received a full repaint and the yacht a full refit and refurbishment. She has new 3Di main and mizzen sails arriving shortly from the North Sails loft.
The yacht is in exceptional condition and available to view in the Caribbean where she has been a great commercial success on the charter market. All expressions of interest are encouraged so please contact a Burgess broker today to find out more about this exquisite yacht.
