Originally named Mondango, ‘Q’ is the fifth yacht over 50m (164ft) built by Alloy Yachts. She is a 51.7m (170ft) ketch for extensive bluewater cruising. Finished to a superb standard throughout, Alloy Yachts fulfilled the brief for a stylish yacht capable of fast, comfortable ocean passages. Designed by Dubois Naval Architects, Mondango continues a progression of large flybridge yachts and displays clean lines, with a near plumb bow, subtle sheer and low-profile coachroof. The agressively raked windows of the coachroof wrap all the way around in a dramatic sweep of curved glass to accentuate the modern exterior.
The coachroof extends aft to encompass the mizzen mast and provides a long overhang protecting the aft cockpit. The port and starboard side windows of the cockpit as well as the spectacular curved rear window all open and close to create a climate-controlled single-level extension of the main saloon.
The hull is finished in flag blue with a white superstructure. A gold cove-stripe provides a handsome accent against the dark hull and establishes a theme repeated on the two booms.
