MondoMarine are to build a 45.05 Explorer Motor yacht called Project 500. The yacht will feature an ice-classed hull and an aluminum superstructure. Motor yacht Project 500, is expected to accommodate up to twelve guests in a 6 stateroom layout. The 45.05-meter explorer / expedition yacht features naval architecture by Hydro Tec, boasts strong, clean and modern lines.
The delivery of the 45.05 Explorer Motor yacht Project 500 by Mondo Marine is expected to take 24-months from signing of contract.
Some optional features onboard the yacht can changed such as the engine package which can upgraded to electrical sets to allow for the option of switching to electrical propulsion when needed especially when underway at night. If the standard engine package is chosen then twin CAT C32 634 Kw engines are expected to power Project 500. A 14 knot cruising speed is expected.
Another possibility for MondoMarine Project 500 is the addition of a helipad. Although the current design does not include a helipad, it can be added if the owner chooses. The heli pad will be a touch and go pad rather than one that can house a helicopter for extended periods.
