Ancallia Yacht Review
Motor yacht Ancallia is a classic Feadship built yacht and that means quality. Indeed, she was also rebuilt from the hull up and can now be chartered throughout the eastern and western Med. Everything on board is of exceptional quality which you will see as soon as you embark. The classic exterior has a huge deck giving guests the opportunity to find a secluded spot at any time of the day or night. There’s also a relaxing Jacuzzi on the sun deck of this fantastic 46m (150ft) yacht. See her full charter details here.
She was originally built in 1984 and a rebuild was carried out between 2011-2014. The modernity of the Ancallia was kept to, although subtle touches were added. This elegant and sophisticated superyacht won the Neptune Trophy in the “best refit” category at the World Superyacht Awards. This will give you an idea of just how magnificent this mega yacht really is.
Guests can experience a sensational vacation on this Feadship vessel. She has lots of modern facilities and all the amenities they could wish for. The attention to detail is mind-blowing which is why the Ancallia is such a popular choice for a yacht charter vacation.
The main saloon is decorated with fabulous woodwork that’s both inspiring and inviting. Communal spaces have soft, comfortable sofas, bookshelves filled with travel books and dramatic views over the ocean. Natural colour schemes give the saloon a calm, tranquil atmosphere, ideal for relaxing and chilling out.
An unusual feature is a table which can be found behind the starboard side staircase. This provides a private area if you need to make contact with business partners, work colleagues or the folks back home.
Bathed in natural light, the dining area is separated by a mirrored unit from the main saloon. Everyone on board can dine here in style, no matter how many guests there are. The mahogany fringed dining table has been designed with a patterned light wood making it the focal point of this part of Ancallia. Windows at each end of the table lighten the dining area which is always a lovely place to eat lunch or dinner.
If you’d like to spend time on the bridge of the superyacht there are plenty of seats. Take the opportunity to see the captain at work while the vessel is sailing around rugged coastlines. You can also discuss the itinerary here and where you would like to anchor next on your amazing yacht charter vacation.
The sky lounge is something else! With its bamboo panelling, chunky sofas and large glass doors, this area is a firm favourite with guests. It has a warm, ambient atmosphere and is beautifully decorated. The sky lounge makes for a smooth transition from the interior to the exterior of the vessel too. Have a drink or two here, put your feet up and read a favourite novel. The sun deck is only a step away.
The ample sun deck has a Jacuzzi situated amidship. It’s a great spot to chill out and watch the quintessential views as you cruise along. With striking seating on the aft deck, either in the shade or in the sun, the sun deck is a good place to socialise with fellow guests. An al fresco dining table gives you the chance to dine outside or under the stars in the evening.
This beautiful superyacht encapsulates classic, modern and sleek lines, everything you would expect from a Feadship vessel. There’s so much to enjoy on board from the latest technology right through to the many entertainment options. If it’s a holiday of a lifetime you’re looking for, then the Ancallia definitely ticks all the right boxes.
Sleeping up to 14 guests, the Ancallia has seven luxuriously decorated cabins. Separate crew quarters will ensure privacy throughout your voyage. The master cabin situated at the fore of the main deck has a green and white décor giving it a feel of freshness. His and her bathrooms can be found further forward and comprise of lots of marble work. Next to the master cabin there’s a private study. Here you can escape to either read or chat with friends on the internet.
Six guest cabins on the lower deck consist of two doubles, a single and three. Modern and classic in design these cabins have their own personalities. The use of beautiful colours and displays of intriguing art make each cabin quite unique.
The Ancallia is the perfect choice for families who might have a nanny. There’s lots of room to sleep extra guests so taking nanny along isn’t an issue.
Toys and tenders
Tenders and toys are stored on the foredeck so guests can hop onto them just off the swim platform at the stern. There are two Yamaha wave runners, a laser sailboat and two custom-made tenders. For those who like to feel the salt water on their faces, enjoy water skiing, knee boards or pull toys. Deep sea divers and snorkellers are also well catered for with the latest equipment on board. There’s fishing gear for adults and inflatable paddling pools for the kids. After a few hours of water activities, why not have a tasty barbie on the sun deck? The friendly crew can make all the necessary arrangements.
Fabulous entertainment facilities
There won’t be a moment to get bored when sailing on the Ancallia. Listen to your favourite tunes on a music player, iPod or via AV and IT systems. Watch a DVD or a movie you’ve always wanted to see on the video projector. Large LCD flat TVs are in all the lounges and guest areas including internet connection. Just because you’re out at sea doesn’t mean you can’t have all the creature comforts of home. With an experienced crew and captain, get ready for a vacation of a lifetime.
