Mondomarine launches M/Y Ipanema


Mondomarine is proud to announce that the project C22-04, a 50 meter semi-displacement yacht, was launched at the Savona Shipyard. 

She is a collaboration with the Milan-based designer Hot lab: Yacht & Design who designed the exterior, the layout and the interior. She is beeen managed by Interforce, Inc of fort lauderdale, Florida. The yacht is registered under the flag of Cook Islands. With an overall length of 49.20m and an overall beam of 9.00m, light alloy hull and superstructure, the M50 features three decks and a spacious sundeck. The innovative look of this project follows Mondomarine’s traditional styling and heritage adding innovative design solutions that gives to the yacht’s profile a flowing and appealing line enriched by the magnificent color combinations attributed to the owner’s exquisite taste” Hermost eye-catching feature is the steep rake of the stern, which generates a forward visual thrust for the superstructure and creates a play of open and filled spaces, allowing natural light to bathe the main deck interiors.


The full-height windows running most of the length of the main deck create exciting, light-filled interior spaces that allow a constant dialogue with the exterior. Access to the yacht is along the central walkway separating the two large sunpads - this leads to the aft cockpit, which offers a large sun area and lounge with spacious sofas evoking the generous spaces typical of an open design.

The fold-down beach area is uniquely large for a vessel of this weight. It conceals the access stairway and forms a striking yet warmly welcoming area. This stylistic solution creates an extended visual sweep that acts as a conceptual reflection of the classic external lines. Automobile-style details that are a typical feature of Hot Lab’s work include the design of the aft fairleads. The vessel’s starboard garage hosts a large tender.

Twelve guests will be accommodated in four guest cabins and one Owner’s suite. The style of the interiors is fully classical, which contains countless elements of the purest architectural tradition, columns, pilasters and carved lintels, friezes and bas-reliefs, from the Italian, English and French manufacturing tradition.


Marbles (on board there are more than a dozen different types), onyx, mahogany, briar and a large quantity and variety of tissues: 37 different motifs decorate the 5 cabins, the two lounges and other public and private areas, creating a decorative richness and precious and rare color impact. As all Mondomarine‘s construction structural, hydrodynamic and technical design for this 50-metre vessel was handled by Mondomarine Engineering. The delivery of M/Y Ipanema is scheduled for the end of July.
