Mondomarine launches 49m red superyacht Ipanema
by Chris Jefferies
Styled inside and out by Milan-based design studio Hot Lab, the new arrival sports a flowing exterior profile and hydrodynamic and technical design by Mondomarine.
In a statement, the yard said: "The innovative look of this project follows Mondomarine’s traditional styling and heritage adding innovative design solutions that gives to the yacht’s profile a flowing and appealing line, enriched by the magnificent color combinations attributed to the owner’s exquisite taste.”
Mondomarine added that her steeply raked stern "generates a forward visual thrust for the superstructure", while the full-height windows that run along most of the length of the main deck "allow a constant dialogue with the exterior".
The interiors feature classical styling cues that draw on Italian, English and French traditions, with columns, pilasters, carved lintels, friezes and bas-reliefs.
On board there are more than a dozen different types of marble, as well as onyx, mahogany and briar, which are used to create 37 different design motifs.
The tri-deck layout includes a spacious sundeck, as well as accommodation for 12 split across an owners cabin and four guest cabins. Key features include a fold-down beach area and a transom tender garage.
Power comes from a pair of 2,185hp MTU 16V2000 M84 engines for a fast cruising speed of 17 knots. When trimmed back to 12 knots, Ipanema will have a maximum cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles. Her new owner is due to take delivery at the end of July.
