Built by Alloy Yachts in Auckland, New Zealand, the sailing yacht Mondango3 will be delivered to its owners later this month. Dubois Naval Architects penned the exterior lines of the 186-foot ketch, while the interiors, which feature contrasting light and dark wood trim throughout, are by Reymond Langton Design. When propelled by its 1450 hp Caterpillar engine, the yacht can achieve a 14-knot top speed, a little over 2 knots shy of its expected top speed under sail. (The yacht’s sea trials will take place in the coming weeks.) The ship is staffed by 10 crew and it can accommodate 11 guests in five cabins. The flybridge seating area and the main deck’s aft hot tub give guests the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, as do the yacht’s many toys, which include kayaks, paddleboards, water skis, and towables. Mondango3 is available for charter through the sales-and-brokerage firm Burgess for a high-season weekly base rate of approximately $307,000 (plus operating expenses) in the South Pacific this summer and in the Andaman Sea next winter.
