A sistership to the 40m luxury yacht TATS (ex Loretta Anne IV, Allogante) as well as the 39m superyacht SQN, the recently delivered 47m motor yacht Loretta Anne, previously known as hull AY43, was built by the prestigious NZ shipyard Alloy Yachts and designed by the respected UK-based studio Dubois Naval Architects. With beautiful interior by well known Donald Starkey, the Loretta Anne superyacht is the 22nd design and the fifth motoryacht, developed by the prominent Dubois studio.
As the designers, the aim of Dubois was to combine excellent seakeeping with an efficient hull and pleasing, timeless looks. Interesting features of the Alloy superyacht Loretta Anne include her vertical bridge screen, which is both practical and contemporary and, unusually for a two and a half deck yacht, the galley is on the main deck.
At 47m, most yachts of this size would have three full decks. However, the pleasing streamlined apperance of the ‘two and a half deck’ model was preferred. The extensive flybridge – far alrger than on a tri-deck yacht of this length – can be made weatherproof with lifting/lowering windows all the way around.
Although the intention is for the 47m luxury yacht Loretta Anne to remain a private vessel, she has been built in compliance to LY2, and is Lloyd’s classed. Powered by Caterpillar engines, she cruises at 14 knots, with a maximum speed of 17 knnots and a range of 3,500nm at cruising speed.
Like the Loretta Anne yacht’s predecessor, which has a draft of 2.06m to the underside of her keel, a requirement of the new yacht was to have a shallow draft to allow access to the Bahamas and Belize, which will be her main cruising grounds. This has benn realised with a draft of 2.2m, which will allow the vessel access to many of the shallower anchorages, and gives destination flexibility.
Like the 38.8m and the 40m Loretta Annes, the new Loretta Anne yacht has an interior by Donald Starkey. She features five cabins; three VIP guest suites, along with a fourth which can be converted between a guest cabin and a gym sleeping eight guests plus the owner, in a full beam master stateroom.
Loretta Anne (hull AY43) is the 11th motoryacht of over 30 metres that Dubois has designed. Known primarily as sailboat designers, Dubois nevertheless delights in the challenge of marrying seaworthiness with practicality and good looks in its motoryacht designs; the same priorities that the studio applies to its wind driven sisters.
