Alloy Yachts was founded in 1985, which makes the company look young compared to some European shipyards that have been operating for well over 100 years. Mondango 3, however, shows that Alloy Yachts has the ingenuity and experience to build some of the world's most impressive sailing yachts.

Mondango 3 is a refined, updated yacht for the owner of Mondango 2. The owner's sailing experience helped inform the design process, resulting in a vessel that can travel the world in luxury. When it comes to aesthetics and performance, few yachts compare with this unique ketch.

The Mondango 3 Interior Design

Alloy Yachts partnered with Reymond Langton Design to create a stunning, yet extremely comfortable, interior for Mondango 3. Her look partially relies on bleached oak and palm wood inlays. The light-colored wood contrasts beautifully with the dark leather furniture found throughout the yacht.

Mondango 3 has a master suite for the owner; two double cabins; and two twin cabins.

Reymond Langton Design worked tirelessly to make sure each guest suite has its own identity. Bright colors make the suites both playful and relaxing. Of course, the master suite stands out as one of the yacht's most opulent rooms. The master suite features unique characteristics such as arced, overlapping wall panels that house creative recessed lighting.

With so many lovely rooms, it's difficult to pinpoint the yacht's best area. The main saloon has artwork made of carved leather and a balustrade with exceptional stitching. This stitching shows how much attention Mondango 3's builders put into the details.

Glass art panels decorate the saloon and lobbies, making them attractive places for guests to interact or relax.

The yacht's formal dining room has plenty of seating for up to 10 guests. It features overhead recessed lighting that emphasizes the rooms artwork and dark wood divider that separates it from other areas of the boat.

An expertly crafted stairwell gives guests access to various decks while adding to the yacht's artistic feel. Every detail says something special about the boat, the care that went into its design, and the experiences that guests will have while staying aboard Mondango 3.

No matter where guests go onboard, they will find interesting naval architecture and impressive works of art that coordinate with the interior styling created by Reymond Langton Design.

Enjoying Life on the Mondango 3's Outside Decks

Mondango 3's beautiful design flows easily to outdoor areas. The flybridge is a particular attractive area with comfortable places to sit and a Jacuzzi that offers the ultimate in relaxation. The flybridge is also a great place for the owner and his guests to take in the ocean view. As they travel the world, they will experience many sites that few people get to experience.

A cockpit breakfast area gives the owner and his guests the perfect place to start their days. The breakfast table sits outdoors, but it has overhead protection that allows use on rainy or exceptionally sunny days.

Designers paid special attention to the outdoor decks to make sure they took advantage of every inch of space. This makes the decks excellent locations for small gatherings or larger parties. It also makes them irresistible to anyone who enjoys a relaxing day while rocked by the ocean's gentle waves.

Sails and Rigs for a World Traveling Ketch

Dubois Naval Architects worked closely with Alloy Yachts to build an impressive two-sail yacht that can travel in shallow waters as well as the world's deepest oceans. Mondango 3's sails were made by North Sails. Her mast and rig come from Southern Spars. These are two of the top companies making hardware for sailing yachts like Mondango 3. Including them ensures that the owner and his guests can travel safely in all types of weather.

A swing keel centerboard makes it easier for Mondango 3 to pass through shallow waters, including anchorages that 56-meter yachts often cannot access.

In days when there isn't enough wind to fill Mondango's sails, she can rely on a 1,450-horsepower Caterpillar engine that lets her travel at a 12-knot cruising speed.

Having Fun on Mondango 3

Sailing the world should be fun. Alloy Yachts and its partners recognize this, so they've included numerous items that guests can enjoy in the water.

Mondango 3 comes with a long list of water toys, including two paddle boards, water skis, and two different types of kayaks. An island raft with head rest and bimini let guests relax in the ocean water. A 7 by 5 meter net keeps jellyfish away from the recreational area, making it safe for swimmers of all ages.

Guests who enjoy snorkeling and fishing have access to plenty of equipment.

Those who want to explore nearby islands, coves, and docks can use one of the tenders stowed under the foredeck. Keeping them under the foredeck expands the yacht's useable space without restricting adventure.

Mondango 3's beauty and reliability come from years of hard work. Alloy Yachts partnered with two outside design and naval architecture firms to make sure Mondango 3 would meet the needs of its experience client. As she circumnavigates the globe on her first journey, the owner is undoubtedly pleased with her stunning looks and incomparable utility.
