[dropcap]M[/dropcap]ondomarine has recently launched the first hull of the M60 range, representing today the shipyard’s new flagship. Entirely designed by Luca Dini, M/Y Sarastar, measuring 60.22m in lenght, is a semi-displacement motor yacht, with lines equally sportive and elegant. With hull and superstructure both built all in aluminium, she is designed to reach a speed of over 19.5 knot, with a full beam of 10.50m.
Powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M73L 3,860bhp diesel engines, Sarastar offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, consisting of a full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck, and four double staterooms and a twin guest cabin on the lower deck, all with en-suite bathrooms. The 900GT vessel can also accommodate up to 11 crew members in 6 cabins.
The merger of Mondomarine philosophy and the new vision of the designer Luca Dini combined to an accurate choice of material, care for details and a new project approach have originated a new series of fast boast suitable for those owners in search of high performance without compromising comfort, internal space and excellent quality. This is the first of a series of boats that complete the Mondomarine range from 41,50m to 64m designed by Luca Dini. All of them share not only the same style but also a particularly accurate choice of materials and an innovation project approach.
One of the main characteristics of this yacht is the completely closed forward area in which the garage has been located. The tenders are completely hidden under a flush bridge that can be used as: helipad, sunbathing area of guest or dance floor.
Another important characteristics is represented by the stairs that lead us from the sundeck directly to the side of the Wheelhouse, so connecting for the first time these two areas. This turns out to be a comfortable passage for guest but also for the crew.
The last but not less important feature concerns the stern area: the three skylights that can be found in all the bridges and create charming plays of natural light from the Sundeck to the Beach Club.
A particular attention has been reserved to the crew quarters which under the latest regulations offer space and comfort almost like guest cabins. There will also be new technology audio-video equipment chosen among the most advanced in the market, with the only aim of turning every area and moment aboard into a special one and transforming into particularly unique any ordinary living on board through the big scenographic effects produced by led.
Sarastar will debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016. Future projects from MondoMarine include an M40 explorer from Sergio Cutolo and an M45 also by Luca Dini, both expected to launch in 2017.
