With four decks clad in a striking metallic paint, the all-aluminum yacht Anjelif is awaiting sea trials. She just launched at Columbus Yachts’ facility in Ancona, Italy, replete with details that keep environmental impact and the environment’s impact on guests in mind.
A Columbus Custom 50M hinted at a few years ago, the megayacht belongs to a client who has owned large yachts previously. With styling by Marco Casali – Too Design, she’s sporty and even sleeker than the number of decks implies.
Those decks incorporate some noteworthy technical systems. Firstly, the owner requested a plasma air purifier. Briefly, air that comes from outside for the interior flows through a plasma field. The plasma treats air for ventilation as well as air conditioning, eliminating viruses and other harmful airborne elements. Secondly, the owner wanted yet another air-sanitation system, this one activating inside at set times each day. It “scrubs” the air in various rooms.
Further featuring diesel-electric propulsion, yacht Anjelif employs abundant natural materials throughout her interior design. Here as well, the owner collaborated with Marco Casali – Too Design. The specifics aren’t available, although they appear in the four guest staterooms below decks and the master on the main deck. They additionally augment the gym, sauna, and spa on the main deck.
Sea trials should confirm that yacht Anjelif is capable of a 20-knot top speed. While the shipyard indicates twin Kohler gensets will drive the electric motors, it doesn’t disclose the range that the owner can expect in that mode. Regardless, the megayacht should be able to cruise quietly at 9 knots on electric propulsion. A battery bank can step in as an electrical power backup. Furthermore, under the traditional MTU diesels aboard, the megayacht should see 3,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
When the owner and guests are at anchor, a few on-deck amenities are theirs to enjoy. A hot tub, for instance, sits on the top deck, providing a great view. A pool, meanwhile, tucks into the transom and has teak surrounding it. Sunning or cinema going can take place on the foredeck, which has a touch-and-go helipad, too.
Following the owner’s maiden voyages this summer, Anjelif will make her boat-show debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
