Almost exactly as the shipyard was sold to a dynamic Italian investor, who we’re told has plenty of ideas for the company’s future, Mondo Marine launched its 62nd vessel, Nameless, on 7 July. This 41-m yacht has a sporty design with the hull and superstructure in aluminium and a general plan covering three decks plus a sun deck.
The exterior design was developed by Cor D. Rover, with interior design by Luca Dini who has created a style that blends modernity with a contemporary/classic flavour. Aspects that we noted when exploring this new Mondo Marine vessel include the careful management of spaces for the Owner, guests and crew, all with the objective of respecting everyone’s privacy while ensuring that the crew have the necessary freedom of movement on board plus general comfort even during the most demanding voyages.
As is usual with this shipyard’s creations, the naval engineering and the engineering required for the production of all the elements on board were developed by the shipyard’s in-house team.
The shipyard personnel, who accompanied us on our tour, pointed out the extensive noise and vibration reduction work, achieved through decisions that were demanding from a construction point of view, but will certainly be highly appreciated by guests during a cruise.
Nameless embodies the experience acquired to date by the shipyard in the production of yachts with high-level technical and qualitative contents, as a result of which it has now built up a highly respected reputation.
Looking at the interiors, we note the impressive work done by wood and marble craftsmen, who have combined each individual element of the same material with an eye to the natural grain so that it appears to run continuously, while each individual piece has been placed alongside the next taking into account the natural pattern of its surface.
This is undoubtedly not the first time that we have encountered such attention to detail in the furnishings, but it’s also true that this is not something we always find, especially in less important spaces or those that most would overlook.
The message received when looking at such a refined piece of work is that on board Nameless, as on other Mondo Marine vessels, attention to detail is not a commercial theory but rather a day-to-day practice.
It must be borne in mind that Mondo Marine is one of the few Italian shipyards that produces both leisure and working vessels (it also builds public transport vessels as we saw in one of their sheds) starting from the raw materials, right from the cutting of the metal plate.
In the shipyard we saw three vessels currently under construction, in sizes from 40 to 60 metres, to which we must add the vessels undergoing refit including historic leisure vessels.
Consider that over the last seven years Mondo Marine has launched 16 vessels, 10 of them with lengths of over 40 m and six with lengths of over 50 m.
One of the vessels that has contributed to enhancing the renown and increasing the visibility of the Italian shipyard – now a member of SYBAss, the Superyacht Builders Association – is certainly Tribù, the first yacht to obtain the RINA Green Star classification.
This allows the Owner to document the environmental impact of his or her yacht through technical measures that also allow emissions levels to be reduced. However, going back to Nameless, on the lower deck the four guest cabins are located amidships. Two of these are large full-beam VIP cabins, one to aft and one forward of the other two guest cabins, one of which has a double bed and the other of which has twin beds and one pullman bed.
This deck also houses the crew quarters which occupy the whole of the bow section, with spaces large enough to ensure that personnel enjoy the proper level of comfort even during long stays on board. A central staircase leads from this deck to the foyer of the main deck, from which access to the Owner’s suite is provided forward and access to the dining area and salon to aft. The Owner’s suite is not only as large as you might properly expect, but also extraordinarily bright thanks to the large side windows built into the structure. [...]
