Mondo Marine is delighted to introduce the all-new motorsailer yacht SM45 Project Amerigo. To be officially presented together with the new 57m luxury yacht M57 Eidos project at this week’s Monaco Yacht Show, superyacht SM45 Project Amerigo is a beautiful 45-metre three deck vessel, designed by Massimo Franchini and Michele Ansaloni.
A NEW HYBRID MOTORSAILER CONCEPT. Once again, Mondo Marine innovates by presenting to the international nautical market the development of an original concept by Massimo Franchini (an innovator and a leading Italian expert on motorsailers and long range cruiser yachts). The yard has taken on the challenge of offering a true ‘hybrid’: an “All-Sea Yacht” able to cruise without limits with maximum autonomy and minimal fuel consumption and environmental impact.
UNIQUE DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES OF THIS ABSOLUTE NOVELTY, which can be summarized as follows:
– UNDERSTATED and TIMELESS STYLE, for customers who have a preference for “essence” over “appearance”
– DYNAMISM defined as the ability to move without limits
– ELEGANCE resulting from the general equilibrium of shapes combined to the proportion of volumes
– CLASS conferred by attention to details and by a simple and essential style
The design philosophy is reflected in its most significant operating characteristics:
SEAWORTHINESS – first of all due to the great quality of the naval design and to technical features that make it a real pleasure vessel that can “never stop” sailing for voyages without boundaries.
ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY – meant first of all as a maximization of the “value” of what is received in exchange for the price paid and at the same time as a minimization of management cost to foster the highest possible range of use.
CUSTOMIZATION – which represents the total freedom for the client to adapt “his” vessel to his functional needs and lifestyle, quality and safety standards are guaranteed by Mondo Marine one of the leading manufacturers of Super Yachts in the world.
SM45 PROJECT AMERIGO, A CLASSIC OF TECHNOLOGY
Starting from these premises, technical choices have been made with the objectives of having the highest reliability combined with maximum fuel efficiency.
The the hull and superstructure construction are made of special naval aluminum alloys treated with the most sophisticated protection systems.
Particular care has been devoted to the study and optimization of the hull, keel with low resistance tested in towing tank, additional extensions for better stability as well as reduction of the pitch and dive.
The propulsion system includes a diesel engine of approximately 800kw that operates the adjustable pitch propeller to add thrust to the sails or, with the engine off, the propeller can be set upright to minimize the resistance.
The ketch sail plan of 850 square meters with “squared” mainsails favors simplicity in cruising and maneuvering and is not exclusively dedicated to experienced owners with oversized crew.
The SM45 PROJECT AMERIGO yacht wants to please even those who are less willing to accept the inconveniences of extreme sailing.
The widespread use of electronics is designed for the management and coordination of propulsion and on-board comfort.
IMPORTANT VOLUMES CHARACTERIZE THE SM45 PROJECT AMERIGO. The bow area of the main deck is dedicated to the Owner’s quarters with a private terrace, whereas the aft area houses the spacious main salon comprising the dining as well as the relaxation area. The lower deck has four cabins, of which two VIP, and a garage with a large volume forward that could be customized as a SPA or a storage zone for nautical equipment. The upper deck offers an internal wheelhouse and a lounge with more privacy.
The SM45 PROJECT AMERIGO superyacht offers as much interior and exterior spaces as the most popular motor yachts of the last generation.
SM45 PROJECT AMERIGO DESIGN
The main idea that governs the project remains in the conception of the boat conceived as something that is alive and dynamic in contrast with the prevailing fashion of considering boats only like objects.
The primary goal in the study of the design was to create a “natural form” beneath the technical functionality.
The ultimate goal is to interpret the yachting life-style as a whole, including and integrating different ways of living the sea, simple and aristocratic at the same time, static and moving, calmly and with power … A new and old world at the same time, a MONDO MARINE.
