The Mondo45 Explorer Yacht

Adventure without compromise


Mondo Marine recently released details about a new project the Italian builder developed with naval architect and designer Sergio Cutolo, the Mondo45 Explorer. Mondo Marine is no stranger to the expedition style. A few years ago, the Savona-based shipyard built for Italian business icon Luciano Benetton a one-of-a-kind go-anywhere expedition vessel, called Tribù. With its rough demeanor outside and stylish, spacious interior, plus RINA Green Star certification for environmental compliance, it struck a great balance. Likewise, this 148-foot (45-meter) explorer seems to have the best of all worlds. Combining elements of a working hull, a cruise ship, a research vessel and a superyacht, it offers safety and luxury to yachtsmen looking for a bit of adventure. The four-deck yacht is built to provide expansive views of the surroundings, with numerous full-length windows and a glass railing on the upper deck to provide a view from the salon straight to the horizon. Powered by two CAT C32 Acert engines, the Mondo45 will reach a top speed of 15 knots and will cruise at 14. With a huge fuel reserve (21,234 gallons), this steel-hulled explorer can make a circumnavigation with few stops.
