Built in the west coast of Sweden by traditional craftsmen, the Malö 42 sailing yacht is a design for a cruising couple with extended voyaging in mind. Malö Yachts are renown for their superior design and built quality as well as excellent stability, comfort and performance characteristics.
The west coast of Sweden is home to several of the world’s premier builders of custom, semi-custom and production cruising boats.The names Hallberg-Rassy, Najad and Farr, Sweden Yachts may be familiar to many North American sailors, but Malö Yachts are one of Scandinavia's oldest and experienced yacht builders. They may not have been the biggest yard, but always maintained a team of excellent boat builders who had a fundamental understanding of sailing and quality.
In winter of 2014/2015, Belafonte underwent an extensive retrofit, including new: engine, sails, rigging, electronics, offshore safety equipment, tender and ground tackle, as well as an overhaul of her mechanical and electrical systems, among other upgrades. Her equipment is high quality and current.
Belafonte is currently ashore at Clarke's Court Marina in Grenada, as her owners have returned to land life & work. Grenada is the perfect place to purchase a yacht, offering simple formalities, as well as having a well established yacht service industry and accredited surveyors. In addition to being a viable option for storage during hurricane season, Grenada offers the perfect starting point for exploring the Carribean or an around the world voyage.
Meticulously maintained by her knowledgeable owners and fully equipped for a circumnavigation, she is truly ready to make your dreams come true.

Hull and Deck Construction
- The hull is made in hand laid sandwich laminate from glass fibre reinforced polyester with balsa as distance material for superior insulation, strength and stifles.
- For impact resistance the outer skin is overbuilt.
- To eliminate the possibility of moisture penetration of the core, Malo goes further than most builders – the balsa is removed, and the outer and inner skins are bonded together wherever through-hull fittings are installed. New bronze though-hull fittings (Groco) installed in December 2014.
- The topsides are protected against water penetration by an NGA gel coat.
- Below the waterline, epoxy barrier applied for prevention of osmosis, with anti-fouling on top.Three layers of Interlux Micron 66 antifouling applied in April 2017
- Substantial rubbing strake molded integral with the hull, protecting the hull sides from damage. The rubbing strake is capped with a protective aluminum strip.
- Internally, all stringers and bulkheads are fully laminated in place to create an immensely strong structure.
- Malo decks and coach roofs are balsa-cored for maximum strength and insulation.
- The deck is molded with raised sections under all hardware, keeping moisture away from the fasteners, and minimizing the chance of moisture ingress and corrosion.
- Solid aluminum inserts (where many other builders use plastic or plywood) beneath all hardware provide necessary support and additional protection for the core against moisture intrusion.
- The hull to deck joints consist of a bullet proof flanged construction, sealed with polyurethane, bolted and fiber glassed on the inside.
- The cap rails, handrails, and other external woodwork are solid teak.
- The entire deck is laid with 12mm caulked teak to create an excellent, good looking, non-skid surface.
- The teak deck has undergone a retrofit in November 2015. This involved cutting down of proud caulking and its replacement where needed as well as replacement of damaged teak plugs, followed by very light sand to even out wear on the wood grain.
- The decks have scuppers draining to through hulls at the waterline, leaving no dirt streaks down the hull sides.
- The coamings are deep and angled outboard for comfort, with the seats placed in a manner that enables the crew to get comfortably braced when the boat is heeled.
- There are gaps in the seating beside the steering pedestal for easy access to the front from behind the steering wheel so no more hazardous climbing over them in rough seas.
- The cockpit is spacious enough for entertaining, with a large table hinged off the forward face of the steering pedestal.
- The seats, coamings and cockpit sole are laid with caulked 12 mm teak to create an attractive nonskid surface.
- There are excellent, sheltered watch-keeping positions both at the wheel, and under the dodger.
- The signature TARGA arch, located over the cockpit, is made of solid fiberglass reinforced with threaded stainless steel bars. It provides a mounting base for the bimni and dodger that connects with a rigid windshield of hardened glass mounted in an aluminum frame. This dodger is much stronger, and provides better protection and visibility, than a traditional ‘soft’ dodger and a stronger handhold to step in/out of the cockpit.
- Four stainless steel fittings are provided for clipping on safety harnesses.
- All winches and sail-handling devices are strategically at hand to allow for single-handing. Stowage for lines and other items is provided in the cockpit coamings.
- The companionway drop boards are teak with louvered vents, sliding into a stainless steel frame. The sliding hatch has a clear top to add light below.
- The pulpit, pushpit and all stanchions are fashioned from heavy-duty, highly polished, stainless steel.
- Swim/boarding platform at the stern with an outdoor shower unit.
Anchoring and Mooring
- Malo yachts have a large self-draining anchor well in the bow with room not only for windlass and calibrated chain but also fenders and mooring lines.
- The anchor locker bulkhead is watertight to the rest of the hull.
- There are six over-sized cleats for mooring lines: two forward, two amidships, and two
