Both designed by the multi-award winning UK design studio Dubois Naval Architects, the 46m motor yacht Como, as well as the the 56,4m sailing yacht Mondango 3 have won the 2014 ISS Design Award in their categories. The prizes were handed over at the gala, which took place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday evening, October 29, 2014.
Superyacht COMO won ‘Best Power’ in the 40m – 65m category.
Luxury yacht COMO is a progressive 46.2m semi-displacement motor yacht is the first Dubois-designed superyacht to be built by Feadship and all are delighted with the result. Commissioned by repeat client of Dubois, Neville Crichton, this entirely custom two-and-a-half-deck superyacht was hugely influenced by his experience at sea and the yacht is of the highest possible quality.
Super yacht COMO also won the category for ‘Best Interior’ – the interior styling, by Redman Whiteley Dixon, is sympathetic to the exterior theme and is particularly elegant, with dark timbers, polished stainless steel and fine detailing. The interior arrangement features a rotating circular floor in the main saloon, allowing the seascape to be admired from any direction with ease.
Luxury yacht MONDANGO 3 won ‘Best Sailing Yacht 40m+’ and is the 23rd Dubois design to be built by Alloy Yachts. She features a swing down centreboard, twin sub-deck tender wells, aft deck spa pool and 60-square-metre flybridge.
Superyacht MONDANGO 3 epitomizes the extraordinarily high standard of sailing superyacht achieved by the excellence in design combined with superb construction in all areas; structural, systems, engineering and interior finish.
MONDANGO 3 yacht is another triumph for Alloy Yachts, and Dubois believe for them as her designers as well. She has five cabins accommodating up to 11 guests, with beautiful interior styling by Reymond Langton Design.
