Built in aluminium by Italian yard Mondomarine to a design by Hot Lab, she was delivered in 2016 and still has just 177 hours on her engines. Ipanema features a semi-displacement aluminium hull and aluminium superstructure, with teak decks. She was built to ABS (American Bureau of Shipping) A1, Commercial Yachting Service, AMS classification society rules, and is MCA Compliant.
Together with the distinctive bright red hull, IPANEMA sports a flowing, striking and hydrodynamic exterior designed by the Milan-based studio Hot Lab. The innovative look of this ‘lady in red’ flaunts design solutions that give her profile appealing aesthetics, enriched by her magnificent colour combinations.
Her steeply raked stern generates a forward visual thrust for the superstructure, while the full-height windows running along most of the length of the main deck enhance the vertical dimension of this tri-deck as well as creating a natural flow between indoor and outdoor. Besides her three spacious decks with a large sun deck, other key features include the fold-down transom door that becomes a uniquely large beach club for a yacht of this size and that proves ideal for unwinding, sunbathing or for launching any number of the yacht’s water toys.
Her sumptuous interior can be described as fully classical with plenty of elements of pure architectural tradition, columns, pilasters and carved lintels, friezes and bas-reliefs inspired by Italian, English and French design tradition. More than dozen types of marbles have been used throughout the superyacht, including onyx, mahogany, briar and large quantity and variety of tissues with different motifs. The interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests overnight in 7 cabins including owner's cabin, 2 guests cabins, 2 VIP cabins and 2 private cabins, as well as carrying up to 12 crew.
Boasting full-height windows running the length of the main deck allowing ample daylight to flood in, her saloon features chintz sofas and armchairs, mirrored ceiling panels and high-gloss mahogany panelling throughout. More than a dozen types of marble are used, with several different themes created to separate the key areas on board.
The main aft deck is large enough to store three Jet Skis and a relaxing al fresco dining area around a circular table, while the semi-covered sun deck comes with a large Jacuzzi, an outdoor bar and a selection of sun pads. Other features include a foredeck seating area and a large beach club giving easy access to the sea.
This luxury yacht is also fitted with 'zero speed stabilizers' which work at anchor, increasing on-board comfort when the yacht is stationary, particularly in rough waters.
