While luxury yachts naturally feature beautifully handcrafted woodwork, custom-cut marbles, and more, the yacht Anjelif takes her guests’ health into consideration, too. In fact, the owner further takes the cruising grounds they’ll visit together into consideration, wishing to leave as little an impact as possible.
Firstly, well before the christening of the 164-footer (50-meter) at Columbus Yachts, the owner had enjoyed the luxury yachting lifestyle. He therefore had a good amount of experience in working with shipyard and design teams. Since Anjelif is fully custom, he was able to have some uncommon, yet quite important, systems onboard. A plasma air purifier, for example, treats all fresh air drawing from the outside and flowing throughout the interior. The air passes through a plasma field, which filters out harmful airborne particles and viruses. Yet another noteworthy system is an air-sanitation system. Even though the air purifier should improve fresh air, the sanitation system acts as a secondary scrubber. It activates at specific times every day, too.
To be more mindful of cruising grounds, Anjelif relies on hybrid propulsion. The electric motors should allow her to cruise silently at 9 knots. Quiet modes are especially important for navigating at night, and entering and exiting sensitive areas. For long-range travel, meanwhile, a pair of MTU diesels should allow a 3,000-nautical-mile range at 12 knots.
Of course, the owner worked closely with Columbus Yachts and the designers at Marco Casali – Too Design for indulgences as well. Four guest staterooms accommodate friends and family below decks. They can join the owner for nighttime movies on the foredeck, since a large viewing screen installs there. During the daytime, the same area is ideal for sunning and good conversations. Fitness buffs will make good use of the gym and sauna on the main deck—which further has a spa.
Soaking up the views while literally soaking in water is possible aboard as well. The transom includes a good-size pool, with teak surrounding it. The uppermost deck has a hot tub, in perfect position to take in the surrounding anchorage views.
Anjelif will debut at the Monaco Yacht Show this coming September.
