The M60 from Mondo Marine promises excellent performance and sporty design.

There is a highly selective maritime market that spreads across the world. Retailers and manufacturers of ultra luxury super yachts continue to thrive in the face of a sluggish global economy. This industry is defined by yachts with the highest levels of luxury and comfort, state-of-the-arts performance and technology, power, and aggressive design to highlight the beauty and strength of the vessels.
This strategic niche attracts most of the major international shipbuilders. Historically, Italy has been one of those countries, whose luxury shipbuilding traditions have excelled and continue to be innovative and committed to excellence. Mondo Marine, in collaboration with the renowned designer Luca Dini, has harnessed the best of Italian design and sophistication to develop its new super yacht M60.
The new vessel is unquestionably sporty and muscular. Built entirely of aluminum, the 60-meter long (197 feet) mega yacht, boasts an aerodynamic line with hydro optimization and fluid dynamics, which allow her to reach a cruising speed of 18 knots, and a maximum speed of 21 knots thanks to powerful twin 3,860 horsepower MTUs.
But the Italian shipyard will not neglect the interior features. The M60 promises to be outfitted with the utmost luxury and comfort for her guests. Her enormous dimensions: 197 feet long, 30 foot sleeve and five levels, offer enough room for five luxurious guest cabins, a beautiful master stateroom, rear concourse with direct access to the water, main hall with sitting area, formal dining room for up to twelve guests and an open recreation area with its own table for twelve people on the main deck.
The M60 will have an upper level terrace, perfect for toning and relaxing with an indoor gym with excellent views and a Jacuzzi to unwind after your exercise routine. And for those moments when the scenery becomes monotonous, there are several OLED TV sets scattered around the main levels.
Mondo Marine M60 comes well positioned as one of the sportiest mega yacht in the market at $58 million. This marvel of maritime craftsmanship captivates our interest not only for her outstanding performance, worthy of much larger vessels and more proportional power, but also for her bold and muscular design. The use of aluminum and the strictly angular bow give it the appearance a harpoon thrown at high speed through the waves.
Passion for extreme sportiness, utmost luxury and comfort distinguish the owners of this type of mega yacht. True to Italian maritime tradition, the manufacturers of the M60, are heeding the call of the market: to develop a piece of art and technology that anyone would be proud to dock at the world’s most glamorous marinas. ■
