M/Y Monara was built at the Feadship yard of De Vries in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands. Monara was the beginning of the “Italian affair” that saw the collaboration between Feadship and Carlo Riva for the build of the Caravelle Series.

 Now returned to her original name, Monara was once the pride and joy of a wealthy Milanese banking family, then an English lord, and had welcomed Spanish royalty aboard in her time.

 In 2016 the major rebuild of the Monara was successfully completed at Feadship’s yard in Makkum. The extensive project was carried by the dedicated Feadship refit department in close cooperation with the owner’s team. It reinforces the priceless value of having a Feadship refitted by Feadship itself in terms of both the inherent quality and preservation of Feadship brand status.

 Monara's eight cylinder Gardner engines run so smoothly it allows you to place a 40-pence coin on its side on the rocker cover and it will remain there for as long as you leave it. These engines are the star of the refitted Monara. Feadship reinstalled the engines and fitted a triple-glazed soundproof window, so the owner and guests could admire the engines below.

 Although the Feadship team advised in their original survey that much of the interior could be salvaged, the current owner was determined to start again. Monara has an airy ambiance: all the windows in the lounge and portholes in the cabins can be opened. The varnished teak has been replaced with dark-stained oak and a walk-in wardrobe added instead of lockers, reflecting the way people travel lighter today. 

 The bridge was also given a clever dual personality. At a touch of a button the state-of-the-art navigation displays lowers out of view, covered with a dark oak lid that turns the bridge into a buffet for entertaining. Elsewhere, the boat has been returned to something closer to her original state. The copious cabinetry that you’d expect to see on a vessel of this vintage remains

 Since completing the rebuild, Monara has been maintained to an excellent standard and has proven to be a successful classic yacht on the charter market.

Introduction

 

M/Y Monara was built at the Feadship yard of De Vries in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands. Monara was the beginning of the “Italian affair” that saw the collaboration between Feadship and Carlo Riva for the build of the Caravelle Series.

 

Now returned to her original name, Monara was once the pride and joy of a wealthy Milanese banking family, then an English lord, and had welcomed Spanish royalty aboard in her time.

 

In 2016 the major rebuild of the Monara was successfully completed at Feadship’s yard in Makkum. The extensive project was carried by the dedicated Feadship refit department in close cooperation with the owner’s team. It reinforces the priceless value of having a Feadship refitted by Feadship itself in terms of both the inherent quality and preservation of Feadship brand status.

 

Monara's eight cylinder Gardner engines run so smoothly it allows you to place a 50-pence coin on its side on the rocker cover and it will remain there for as long as you leave it. These engines are the star of the refitted Monara. Feadship reinstalled the engines and fitted a triple-glazed soundproof window, so the owner and guests could admire the engines below.

 

Although the Feadship team advised in their original survey that much of the interior could be salvaged, the current owner was determined to start again. Monara has an airy ambiance: all the windows in the lounge and portholes in the cabins can be opened. The varnished teak has been replaced with dark-stained oak and a walk-in wardrobe added instead of lockers, reflecting the way people travel lighter today. 

 

The bridge was also given a clever dual personality. At a touch of a button the state-of-the-art navigation displays lowers out of view, covered with a dark oak lid that turns the bridge into a buffet for entertaining. Elsewhere, the boat has been returned to something closer to her original state. The copious cabinetry that you’d expect to see on a vessel of this vintage remains

 

Since completing the rebuild, Monara has been maintained to an excellent standard and has proven to be a successful classic yacht on the charter market.

Aft deck

 

Monara’s classic canoe stern offers an aft deck under the extended top deck which includes a built-in U-shaped settee aft that will accommodate 12 around an extendable teak varnished wood table. In addition, there are five teak chairs, an icemaker and drinks fridge.

 

Upper Deck

 

The upper deck has a large 10-person aft sun bed featuring an integrated table that can be raised to transform into a dining / lounge seating. The center of the upper deck has an L shaped lounge sofa with coffee table and 2 fauteuils.

 

Forward, above the wheelhouse is a further 8-person sun bed with seating. The chimney houses a retractable gas barbeque (disconnected), 2 fridges, one wine fridge and a wetpoint with hot/cold water.

 

The upper deck Sonos music system consists of 8 x 250-watt speakers and a built in 1000 watts subwoofer.

 

The sundeck is covered with high tension “shade sails”. These sails can be adapted to the amount of shade required. The supports for the shade sails have a built in LED directional spots which illuminates indirectly the shade sails at night.

 

Salon

 

Step through the automatic opening teak door into a large salon finished in oak and upholstery. An "L" shaped settee is to port and opposite is a full-length cabinet with including a built-in pop-up TV, an icemaker and drinks fridge to serve the aft deck and salon.  The stairs to the guest cabins are aft to starboard.  Access to the master cabin is forward on the starboard side next to the dining area.

 

The salon has a glass panel in the floor to show the immaculately restored Gardner main

the salon.

 

Bridge

 

The bridge can be accessed through the salon, and through two “Dutch doors” either side which can provide access to the main deck. The bridge also offers a second salon with 2 raised L shaped settees and tables, allowing full panoramic views.

 

All bridge and navigation equipment can be electrically lowered to completely hide all controls and navigation systems.

 

The extensive rebuild transformed the bridge in a neat and clean area leaving whilst still boasting the original (restored) steering wheel, engine controls and compass.

 

Galley

 

Opposite the dining table on starboard is the semi-open galley with a 4-plate induction hob, oven/microwave, dishwasher and large fridge. The galley also has a “Dutch door” that can open directly to the main deck. The worktop is finished in black granite and brushed stainless steel.

 

Accommodations

 

Sleeps 8 in four guest cabins plus 4 crew in two cabins.

 

Master cabin

 

The master cabin is forward and has a queen size bed, a built-in desk, settee, large drawers featuring a locker cabinet and 1 large walk in wardrobe. 4 large hull windows flood the cabin with natural light and stunning sea views. Priva-Lite glass in the bathroom door further lightens the cabin and turns opaque at the touch of a button. The ensuite is a large wet room, with her & hers sinks and two hull windows with sea views.

 

As with all other cabins, the LED tv is hidden behind a one-way mirror, leaving it completely out of sight when switched off. The master cabin also has a superior AV system, with a subwoofer hidden under the bed, producing excellent quality noise and vibration when watching a movie or listening to music. Music is also available in the bathroom.

 

VIP & Guest cabins:

 

Below deck and aft, is the VIP cabin with ensuite bathroom / toilet. Down the same staircase you will find two further guest cabins with a shared bathroom / toilet midships. Both guest cabins can be quickly transformed into either two single or double beds. LED tv’s are hidden behind one-way mirrors, leaving them completely out of sight when switched off.

 

Crew quarters

 

The crew cabins are accessed through the foredeck “doghouse”. There are 2 crew cabins with 2 superposed beds in each cabin. The port cabin has an upper bed that can be extended to provide a double bed. There is a large crew shower and toilet, with ample storage.

 

Storage

 

Below the crew quarters is a large storage area. This space contains a large washing machine, drying machine, two freezers and lots of storage space for food, drinks etc.

 

 

Bulbous Bow

 

A bulbous bow was fitted during the rebuild to reduce fuel consumption, compensate added weight in the bow and for better sea keeping.

 

Monara’s sea keeping is more comfortable due to much less pitching against the waves. Also, the bow contains the underwater camera and light.

 

Entertainment systems

 

All cabins and the salon are equipped with a PC based entertainment system. As well as movies, tv and music, the system allows guests and crew to view the mast, aft deck cameras and the special stern and bow underwater cameras.

 

The salon, pilot house, aft deck and upper deck are equipped with a “Sonos” sound system. This system allows remote control by either the Sonos controller, or any PC, Mac, tablet or smart phone. All areas can play synchronized music, or separate music choices and volumes. There is in addition an Ipod docking station in salon.

 

Technical Systems

 

All technical systems are concentrated in the engine room. The Waste tank, boilers, pumps, hydraulic power packs are fully rebuilt in 2016. By keeping all systems in the engine, it has reduced the interior noise and prevents any guest spaces being disturbed should a fault arise.

 

Toilet system

 

A “Gravity” based sewage system for the toilets allows for “silent” flushing. This system does not have any noise producing pumps or macerators in or under the cabins.

 

Electric systems

 

The 4000 amps maintenance free gel batteries provides at least 8 hours of autonomous power for all systems. This includes power for all 220- and 380-volts consumers including air- conditioning, pumps, lighting etc.

 

All lighting is LED and dimmable. Using LED reduces the power consumption with 75% for lighting.

 

This system allows complete “silent” running while at anchor, or in port without shore power.

 

While underway on either one or two Gardner main engines, each main engine provides ample charging power to maintain/charge the batteries and still have all systems running. The use of the auxiliary generators is not needed while cruising.

 

Heat recovery

 

All waste heat for cooling the main engines or generator is reused for heating the warm water supply.

Pre-heating or maintaining operation temperature for the main engines is taken from the generator’s cooling system, electric or diesel burner.

 

Fuel economy

 

M/Y Monara’s propulsion, hull design and engines allow for a low fuel consumption. With the correct conditions, guests enjoy a reduction of around 30% less than a conventional yacht of this size.

 

Tests showed an average consumption of 33 litres per hour total both engines running.

 

Engine room

 

The engine room was completely rebuilt with new systems in during the 2016 refit.

 

The main engines had a full 2016 rebuild, repainted with special 2 component paint, chromed details and polished copper piping.

 

The engine room layout allows easy access to all systems, ensuring reduced maintenance and repair costs.

 

There is full electronic main engine monitoring through a NMEA 2000 system. There are sensors for measuring each cylinder exhaust temperature, 2-point water temperature, rpm sensors for prop shafts and engines to allow precise synchronizing. Vacuum meters on all fuel filters, allowing replacement only when needed. Temperature regulated ventilation to reduce power consumption. Maintenance free prop shaft stuffing boxes. Full toolkit, including Gardner special tools and workbench.

 

Reliability

 

Monara was rebuilt with all modern systems, should there be a major power/electronics failure, her rebuild ensures that she can still run in all circumstances.

 

The main engines can be manually started, and power will then be generated with one or all 4 alternators of 400 amps capacity each.

 

The engine controls are 100% mechanically operated, no electric or hydraulic power required. Each engine still has mechanical temperature and oil pressure gauges fitted.

 

Fuel supply can be rapidly chosen for each engine from either the forward or aft tanks, should the unfortunate instance that one of the tanks is contaminated.

 

There are 3 ways to pump the bilges; fire pump, regular bilge pump or main engine seawater pump.

 

The AC power can be supplied directly from shore or generator, should there be an issue with any of the 3 Victron converters.
