Superyacht In Focus: The Elegant 67m Charter Yacht Anna

May 22, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

CharterWorld yacht charter specialists are the real experts when it comes to luxury yacht charters aboard crewed superyachts. They have a lot to offer in terms of experience, advocacy and advice for charterers. This time they stepped aboard the luxury 67-metre superyacht Anna. Motor yacht Anna was built by the bespoke shipbuilder Feadship and has just gone through a general refit. According to our charter brokers, Anna is an absolutely amazing choice when it comes to yacht charter vacation this summer with family and friends.

Interior living spaces feature sophisticated decor and an inviting atmosphere. “Most of the furniture (if not all) throughout the yacht has lovely discrete Mother-of-Pearl inlays, and the A/C is kept on AT ALL TIMES to keep her humidity rate at 60% to protect the wood and marquetry. There are mobile temperature centres everywhere that are linked to pagers and phones, and an alarm will notify the crew if it varies by 0.3! Parquet flooring is beautiful and in great condition. So is all the furniture, wooden features, and everything really. Darkwood is used throughout, but because the ceilings are high and rooms quite vast, it leaves a comfortable, spacious feeling. Even the engine room, crew mess and cabins are all exceedingly clean and tidy,” mentioned our yacht charter specialist Solenne Vaudin d’Imécourt.

The main salon is well-appointed and includes a generous, comfortable lounge with soft furnishings. One of the unique features of the yacht is the option of converting the salon into a voguish disco club, which has the lights, smoke machine, DJ booth and speakers. The formal dining room is port side and has sliding doors out towards a drop down terrace. The dining room is serviced by a hidden pantry connected to the main galley below.

Spotless and maintained to the highest standards, motor yacht Anna offers lavish accommodation for 12 guests in 6 cabins.The master suite boasts a private study, opulent bathroom facilities and an enormous wardrobe. It also has a lounge above, which overlooks the bedroom, and boasts a generous couch, video conferencing, TV and great outside areas. Guests aboard were also thrilled to find a golf machine on the deck, which pops out golf balls and surely adds extra fun to the entertainment options while on a luxury yacht charter holiday.

“The master suite is breathtaking: It is impossible to capture how high the ceiling is in a photo,” CharterWorld’s Solenne Vaudin d’Imécourt, commented. “It’s at least double height and I believe you could fit four or five of me, each standing on each others’ shoulders… but then again, I’m not tall! It is huge, has an impressive en-suite bathroom and dressing, and its own lounge above with a skylight.”

There is also a VIP cabin on the upper deck with a queen size bed, two double cabins each with a queen size bed and two twin cabins that are of a generous size, ideal for using Pullman beds in each.
