Mondo Marine’s Nameless

She may have an unusual name, but Nameless ensures that she’ll be anything but anonymous in the minds of all who see this megayacht.

What’s in a name—especially the name of a yacht? In the case of the 134-foot Nameless, there’s plenty. Built by Italy-based Mondo Marine, the same yard that launched the extravagantly detailed tri-deck Okko, this was a fully custom project with detailed goals in mind; don’t be fooled by the seemingly unspecific moniker. Part entertainment platform, and part art gallery, Nameless is meant to keep all of your senses engaged. She sprang from the mind of a man who has owned seven previous projects. Furthermore, Nameless’ owner was deeply involved in the design and layout, even down to that of the helm station.

With styling by Cor D Rover, Nameless was meant to echo the looks of the cars that her owner adores. Of course, she’s also meant to perform properly. Her semi-displacement hull permits a reported 17-knot cruise. Nameless should also see a 3,100-nautical-mile range at 12 knots. The wheelhouse is as clean and crisp as her lines, designed and redesigned by the owner three times to meet his perfecting standard.


If this doesn’t convey how Nameless is a floating art gallery, nothing will. The owner is a passionate art collector and selected specific pieces to be installed aboard the yacht. He collaborated with designer Luca Dini to ensure that they would be displayed properly. Note the extensive use of white, for example; nothing detracts from the paintings.


The white soles of the skylounge are comprised of painstakingly chosen Carrera marble. The owner wanted them absent of any other tones or streaks, quite a challenge. All of the furnishings were custom designed by Luca Dini and made by Italian artisans, too. Note the stone coffee table: the flower holders double as champagne bottle chillers.


Even with all of the white stone and white furnishings, Nameless still employs other materials. Mahogany, leather, and steel are used throughout the yacht. Paintings are also complemented by sculpture-like pieces, such as the one seen at left here in the dining area.


Many a megayacht makes excellent use of stone, but Nameless takes it to a new level. The honey-toned onyx used for the master bath’s sink and shower was the last of its type from a particular cave in Iran. Similarly warm-colored onyx appears elsewhere aboard, such as on the back of the day-head door.


As much as the owner of Nameless loves to entertain family and friends, he also relishes his privacy. Having a main-deck master suite allows him “away time” and takes advantage of the yacht’s 27’8” (8.48-meter) beam. Note the Carrera marble underfoot once again, leading from the office into the sleeping space. More than 3,200 square feet of it is aboard.


Guests who cruise aboard Nameless are treated to individually designed accommodations. This green queen-size cabin joins a blue VIP, an orange VIP, and a brown twin stateroom that also has a pullman. Lest we forget, the green cabin also has green-tone onyx in the en suite bath.


The flying bridge features this waterfall pool, designed by Luca Dini. It’s fully forward, for an infinity-like effect. The owner and guests can simply sit and soak, or they can turn on hydro-massage jets. The lovely mosaics you see adorning the pool were made by an Italian artisan.


Since Mondo Marine is close to the owner’s home, he often visited the shipyard to see the latest progress on Nameless. How often did he stop by? Try at least twice a month—sometimes once per week. That excitement has extended well past delivery. During the Monaco Yacht Show, for example, he and the shipyard hosted a huge party onboard.

There’s a good reason why the owner of Nameless turned to Mondo Marine. Besides offering custom construction, the yard’s in-house naval architecture and engineering staffs continuously research ways to improve hull platforms. Nameless is the eighth yacht employing the yard’s 41-meter (134-foot) hull form, for example. She reflects collective wisdom from the yard’s extensive experience and that of its clients, as well as new input from Nameless’ owner and crew. Those same new solutions will surely be incorporated into subsequent projects that get commissioned.
