Alloy Yachts has launched its latest superyacht, the 52m (170ft) flybridge ketch, Mondango, built for an international businessman and his wife. Mondango is a Dubois Naval Architects design. The hull, which is finished in Majestic Blue, is similar to the recent Red Dragon, but the ketch configuration makes the yacht distinctive.

The superstructure, in Matterhorn White, extends further aft, creating a large cockpit area. The side windows and the curved rear window of the cockpit open and close at the touch of a button allowing the cockpit to be climate controlled, or open to the sea breeze.

The interior design by Reymond Langton features contemporary styling utilizing oak and macassar ebony timbers.

Mondango is the fifth yacht over 50m built by Alloy Yachts. She has a beam of 10.2m (33.5ft), draws 4.9m (16.1ft) and a displacement of 350 tonnes. She is built to Lloyds Classification and the Large Commercial Yacht Code LY2.

Mondango was launched in the traditional way with champagne across the bow and then made its way under the control of two tugs from the yard to the Viaduct Basin in Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour. In the following weeks, the carbon fibre www.southernspars.com!Southern_Spars masts were stepped and engine and sailing trials were undertaken.

Sails are by http://www.northsails.co.nz/!North_Sails and are handled by 18 captive and eight vertical winches, all of which were designed and built by Alloy Yachts. The triple headsails furl on Reckmann furlers.

The main engine is a 3412D 1200hp caterpillar and she is fitted with two 90kw Northern Lights generators.
