The Mondomarine M40 Explorer is an Italian creation made with the utmost mastery. From its initial design to the actual construction of the vessel, no expense or luxury is spared. Every aspect of the yacht is specially designed and no detail is left unturned. Just as an example regarding detail: Because of the yachts uncommon hull shape, the tender has even been designed to mirror it! This is really pleasing to the eye, but it is even more substantial from a technical perspective. It was developed by using refined simulation along with CFD software and the results were confirmed by a sequence of dynamic tank tests. It showed efficient navigation and reduced fuel consumption. It also reduces pollutants due to the increase in range, and reflects the company’s consideration for the environment.
The Mondomarine M40 Explorer was created to set sail with the best of them. Its design is more aligned with the new market of motor yachts with its advanced technical and operational characteristics. It is still a working vessel with a great deal of power, but it also has the sophistication and comfort that is in demand in the new market. It features the latest trends and the design is pleasing to the eye both inside and outside.
The vessel features a full displacement hull and the prow is high above the water line. Its structure ensures that it is extremely stable when in motion for maximum passenger safety (even in extreme conditions).
The engineering and engines themselves are highly capable of pursuing long voyages if you choose to do so. It is specifically designed for long voyages, although that is not it’s only use.

There are a multitude of storage and cooling areas in consideration of longer trips. Private family cruising is her specialty, along with any other requirements that her owner may have.
The bridge deck takes up the whole beam of the superstructure and features more than 180 degree visibility to the horizon, with acknowledgments to the fly bridge and outer helm stations. For the foredeck, a high safeguard was designed that offers protection in the steering area. Transport vessels have their own garaging area in large open spaces that are covered.
