The semi-finished 45-metre superyacht VIUDES 45, displacing 450 tons, has successfully been unloaded at Mondo Marine Repair & Refit division at Savona yard today. The yacht was loaded onto the cargo ship “Storm” of around 100m in length. The vessel then left Barcelona and the M/Y VIUDES 45 was shipped to Mondo Marine’s Savona yard. The yacht VIUDES 45 will be completed by MONDO MARINE’S Repair & Refit division.
Although the reverberations of the international slump can still be felt throughout the sector, the Italian yard Mondo Marine has a healthy workload, and is currently working on five new craft.

The Italian yard’s production site now covers a waterfront area of 35,500 square metres/382,119 square feet. Available facilities include a 100-metre /330-foot jetty for maxiyacht moorings, an 820-ton/1,810,000 lb travel lift, one of the largest in the Med, plus a 300-ton/663,000 lb cradle.
