A 72’ yacht with the features, quality and layout of Mianopa is a rare find. In our opinion, this is one of the roomiest 72' yachts ever conceived. The interior is spacious, bright, and elegant. The wide beam, broad open spaces, and the added bonus of a skylounge inspires comparisons to boats much larger.

And true to Wendon’s style: simple yet robust and well-thought out systems make for reliable, enjoyable cruising, easy maintenance, and efficient operating costs.

Elements of Mianopa
Mianopa is a well-proportioned yacht that makes full use of her interior living spaces, and then some, without sacrificing all-important storage. The feeling throughout is simple, functional elegance, with wide inviting areas. Her design inspires comparisons to quality yachts that are ten feet longer.
Mianopa is an ideal yacht for the cruising couple who want the ability to cruise in comfort for extended periods, and still afford plenty of room for family, friends, or business guests. Her moderate displacement provides big boat performance and comfort, and her sensible design, and generous tankage makes it possible for a couple to further extend their summer voyages.
The flow of Mianopa's layout is simple yet pleasingly stylish. The salon, galley and dining areas are all designed on one level, saving one step, boosting Mianopa’s already bright open feeling.
Board the large swim platform to the opening transom door to the lower cockpit; an ideal space for fishing or sunning. Then up five teak steps to the protected California deck with ample room to lounge al fresco.
Sliding glass doors open to the expansive salon with large bright windows, storage lockers along both sides, smartly positioned hanging locker, entertainment cabinet and plush seating.
The full-sized galley is next, separate, but nicely integrated with the salon, with all the amenities, working space and storage needed for the chef to create.
Up one step to the forward dining area, reminiscent of the “country kitchen” designs found in much larger vessels. There is a wet bar here and a pass through to and from the galley.
Also here are port and starboard doors to the side decks.
From the starboard side of the dining area, descend forward down broad steps to the accommodations area to the refreshingly wide and accommodating foyer. The VIP cabin with private head is forward, there are two private guest cabins to port and to starboard of the accommodations hallway, and the full-beam master stateroom is aft.
Back on the main deck, also from the starboard side of the dining area, ascend up to the skylounge with all helm controls, a large relaxed sitting area, and glass doors aft to the boat deck.
Whether guests are sitting or standing, all areas of the main and skylounge decks afford outstanding views.
Headroom throughout Mianopa’s main and skylounge decks ranges from 6' 4" to 6' 8".
Forward on the main deck, and to starboard, descend to the living quarters down refreshingly wide steps to the accommodations foyer.
