Last night, while most of us in the USA huddled under an extra blanket or two thanks to the week’s ice and snowstorms, folks in Florida celebrated the christening of the 161-foot Anjilis under fair skies and summer-like temperatures.
Commissioned by repeat customers of Trinity Yachts, Anjilis (pronounced “AHN-zhuh-lee”) represents a nice step up from their previous megayacht from the yard, a 124-footer. She also represents a change in interior designer; Glade Johnson worked with them this time around, while Dee Robinson was the designer for the previous boat.
Having met the owners several years ago when they took delivery of their other yacht, I’m sure they were intimately involved in every aspect of this yacht’s build. Indeed, back then, from décor details to sound-deadening measures, they did their homework and worked closely with the Trinity team.
I anticipate getting a tour within the coming weeks and will provide a “Megayacht News Onboard” feature about this 11-passenger yacht at that time. I’m looking forward to seeing how the owners and Johnson collaborated on what’s being called a contemporary take on Art Deco. I’m particularly intrigued by what Camper & Nicholsons, whose charter fleet Anjilis is in, terms “a unique sit-down bar in the main salon surrounding an electronic organ.” Who needs the Kaleidescape movie and music library when there’s live entertainment onboard?
A Camper representative or another reputable charter broker can book her in the Caribbean for you this winter or the Med this summer at a rate of $280,000 per week.
