- 39.25m | Admiral Yachts | 2009 (2018)
The first yacht delivered in the Admiral 40 range, she is built for high-speed navigation and defined by clean lines and high performance. Reaching a maximum speed of 31 knots, Mado is unquestionably a superyacht that promises an action-packed custom charter experience in the Mediterranean.
Mado provides accommodation for up to 11 guests across five en suite cabins. With large exterior deck areas including a spacious sun deck, aft dining area and expansive beach platform, she certainly delivers more than just speed. Two tenders in addition to jet skis, paddleboards and an inflatable waterslide make sure that every day on board Mado is a day to remember.
Leading the crew of Mado since 2017, one word captures the style of Captain Dimitris Kouroumalos: dedicated. “I like to be friendly and accessible, and I’m always searching for unique sights, new places with amazing waters and perfect beaches. We offer our guests complete discretion and we always strive to provide the best holiday possible, going the extra mile to organise perfect moments like private beach BBQs to provide memories that will last forever.”
There are few better vessels than Mado when it comes to zipping from one Mediterranean hotspot to the next. However, with the captain and crew as your destination experts, it’s not only the hotspots that guests can look forward to discovering. Finding off-the-beaten-track beaches for memorable days in complete privacy is a daily occurrence, with a wide selection of tenders and toys providing the perfect way to enjoy the best of life at sea.
On board, Mado provides plenty of space for sunbathing, relaxation and socialising. The sun deck is a particular highlight, complete with an alfresco dining area, bar and large comfortable outdoor lounge. Down on the lower deck, the swim platform is transformed into a spacious beach club with space for everyone on board, creating your own slice of paradise in the Mediterranean when at anchor.
A charter yacht run by professionals, every element of the onboard experience reflects impeccable attention to detail. A highly flexible vessel capable of delivering everything from a fun-filled family charter to a celebration with friends on the trip of a lifetime, Captain Kouroumalos and the crew work side-by-side to provide a charter experience intricately tailored to the needs of each guest.
The Chef & Cuisine
Chef Antonis Gavalas brings traditional Mediterranean flavours to life for Mado’s guests, taking inspiration from the fresh produce and healthy ingredients of his Greek heritage. Raised in a family of exceptional cooks, Chef Gavalas left his family kitchen to train at a top-class culinary school in Crete before taking his culinary creativity to the sea.
Like any talented yacht chef, Chef Antonio is capable of creating the perfect menu for any flavour palette. His passion for cooking shines through in every dish - particularly when it comes to freshly caught seafood from a day at sea, he says: “My dream menu is comprised of freshly caught seafood. My signature dish is sea bass fillet stuffed with Mediterranean vegetables and saffron sauce.”
“Provisioning is the secret to fantastic superyacht food,” he continues. “I like to cook healthy food using fresh, Greek products. I always use local ingredients - especially from Crete!”
Whether it be a fresh seafood informal lunch in the shade of the sundeck, or a sophisticated dining experience al fresco on the aft deck, Chef Galvalas delivers a menu to inspire all tastes.
