Mbolo is a 29m custom-built sloop-rigged sailing superyacht, with Jongert Dutch shipyard pedigree. Mbolo combines a level of performance, relaxed cruising and sophisticated comfort that any owner will appreciate.
Mbolo was designed by Tony Castro and built for an experienced owner whose intention was to create a high quality yacht for fast but comfortable cruising. One of Jongert’s modern 2900M- line constructed with an aluminium hull, Mbolo excels in both light and stronger winds and can be sailed comfortably with a small number of crew.
For a yacht of its size, Mbolo has relatively low engine hours and is in immaculate technical condition. Over the last three years a significant amount of work has been done and the most recent refit included new sails, an overhaul of the rig, winches and Reckmann furlers, and new antifouling applied to the hull. A survey report detailing the rig works conducted in 2019, is available.
In her launch year of 2004, Mbolo won the ShowBoats International Award for ‘Best Sailing Yacht’ in the category for sailing yachts up to 40m in length.
Mbolo is ideal for a family and can accommodate seven guests across three cabins. She boasts a generous and luxurious full-beam master suite, and two twin guest cabins of an equal standard. All cabins are ensuite and have a modern, bright ‘penthouse’ style. One guest cabin is convertible between twin and double configuration, and has an additional Pullman bunk. A
complement of up to three crew can also be accommodated.
Mbolo’s upper deckhouse has an elegant saloon, dining area and helm, whilst her exterior deck boasts a Jacuzzi forward, a sheltered sunbathing area behind the cockpit and a swim platform.
On the foredeck, a 2012 Williams turbojet 385 tender is stowed and Mbolo has ample space for a collection of water toys.
Mbolo cruises at 10 to 12 knots and has a range of 1,600nm.
