In 1996 an Amercan couple asked the Trintella yard for a strong build, safe, reliable and easy to handle cruising yacht for long distances.The Trintella 58A was near to what they were searching but the couple had one more demand: their yacht should be fitted with an  ‘Aerorig’. So their order brought a new challenge to the yard. Aerorig is a revolutionary invention of  Carbospars, in which the unstayed carbon mast is turning on a special foot on the keel and the boom run until the fore end of the boat. The fock is on a furling gear while the mailsail is tradional fitted with reefing lines and a  lazy bag. An Aerorig gives mximum easy handling: you don't need extra sails before the mast and the sail live longer. The "Mona Lisa" was in several aspects different from the  standard 58-foot Trintella. The yacht had an extra heavy hull of 8 mm aluminium (enough to resist the vuiolent of hitting ice with a speed of ten knots), an hydraulic liftingkeel, a longer stern (with  room for a dinghy), a vertical transom, a higher, longer and  closable deckhouse, double steeringwheels and – the most important - an Aerorig.
