WORK IN PROGRESS | MONDOMARINE 50 METRE
By Mary Hegarty and Désirée Sormani
After joining the Palumbo Superyachts group last autumn, Mondomarine has got tongues wagging again with its new aluminium Classic line which spans 43-metre, 50-metre and 63-metre light draft, semi-displacement models. The first to appear is Mondomarine 50 metre developed by Luca Dini who the yard has also put in charge of designing the new Discovery line. “The 60-metre M/Y Sarastar delivered by Mondomarine in 2017 was my starting point,” says Luca Dini. “Speaking of external lines, our target was an evolution, yes, but without distorting the original design of that boat characterised by a sporty and elegant footprint with a combination of corners and curves, sinuous shapes and angles that was quite harmonious. In short, a creative review that, paradoxical as it may seem, translates into a Modern Classic”. Dini also drew on classic Italian car design for the aesthetic details on the hull and superstructure, which create a play of light and shadows when struck by the sun. The Classic 50m can accommodate 10 guests in four cabins plus a roomy master suite with two private balconies. The crew area is designed to house 10 people.
