mondangoOn 5 December 56.4m (185ft) Mondango 3 was launched from Alloy Yachts. She is now in Auckland Viaduct with her rigs stepped.

She is the 23rd Dubois design to be built by the New Zealand shipyard and features a swing down centreboard, twin sub-deck tender wells, aft deck spa pool and 60-square-metre flybridge.

The powerful hull with high stability has been designed with a swing centreboard to give excellent upwind performance combined with access to shallow harbours and close-in bay mooring.

She has five cabins accommodating up to 11 guests, with interior styling by Reymond Langton Design. She was built to Lloyds Classisification, her rigs are by Southern Spars and sails from North.

Mondango 3 will be handed over in late February 2014 and will then be available for charter through Burgess Yachts.
