mojito 888

The gifted cruiser with a panoramic view...

In 2005, IDB Marine, who wanted to produce an original weekend boat - Malango 870 - was then associated with 3C Composites, the manufacturer of the fast and comfortable cruising Bongo 870 sailboat, to produce from the same hull two different programs. In 2012, the hull of Malango 870 was advantageously replaced by a new more powerful hull, lighter and more voluminous, still design by Pierre Rolland, to give birth to Malango 888. In 2013, the IDB Marine shipyard continues its development by taking the initial idea: offer from the hull of Malango 888 the Mojito 888 . This new model dedicated to fast cruising with a larger roof than the Malango 888, will benefit from the experience of the shipyard since its creation. Mojito 888 is only available with a swinging keel with, in option, two retractable legs to beach easily.
