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.
Featuring a four stateroom layout, updated Skylounge and dining area, a walk-in engine room, fishing cockpit and California deck.
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.
Mianopa has been maintained to a very high standard since new, and is now is being offered by her third owners.

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.
