Mondomarine launches 49m red superyacht Ipanema

17 June 2016 • Written by Chris Jefferies

Mondomarine has launched its latest model, a 49.2 metre all-aluminium superyacht with a bright red hull, which has been named Ipanema.

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.

Ipanema was launched in Savona on June 16

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.

Upcoming projects under construction at Mondomarine's Savona yard include the 60.22 metre M60S and the recently sold M54.
