SuperYacht of the Week: Ancòra by Baglietto

Written by Maarten Janssen

Ancòra is the latest jewel built by Baglietto, one of Italy’s leading supeyacht builders. Ancòra, fully built in steel and aluminium, has a length of 42,75 m and a beam of approx. 9 m; the external lines are slender and aggresive, in tradition with Baglietto’s displacement yachts designed by the Italian Designer Francesco Paszkowski.

The interior design is by the design frim Art-Line, for whom this is their first Baglietto. The design calls to mind a déco taste reinterpreted with clear modern elements.

Ancòra's main aft deck is styled with a large comfortable sofa, and has stairs leading to the large bathing platform. From the aft deck, and through an automatic sliding door, guests enter the main salon and dining area.

The interior is characterized by the elegance of zebrano wood with polished finishing, fitted in a way to create a contrast between light and dark, mixed with wise use of Forest Brown marble. The plaited leather on the covering panels make the environment very comfortable and austere at the same time.

The furniture is partially made in zebrano and polished lacquered wood, and wide areas are covered with decorated leather.

The main salon boasts large windows that give the interior a remarkable airiness. Particular attention has been paid to the layout and use of volumes. On the main deck there is a wide salon divided into two parts: a social lounging area, which surprisingly features no sofa's, but 4 large lounge chairs instead, and a dining room.

The onboard lighting has been carefully studied: the natural daylight is ensured by means of wide windows. The sophisticated indoor artificial light has been obtained thanks to a wise mix of low consumption led built in the ceiling making an indirect light, incandescent lights and fiber optics in order to enhance every single element, the whole combined with stylish lamps.

On the left side, after the corridor, there is the galley while on the starboard side there is an owner’s area which includes a relax area with a curved shaped sofa all along the starboard wall and leads to a comfortable cabin provided with an en-suite bathroom including a luxury custom-made bathtub, whose curved shapes and lines are repeated all over the vessel.

The lower deck is dedicated to guests, with four cabins designed for maximised space usage. Two spacious VIP cabins are located just forward of the engineroom, while the two twin cabins are located forward of the lower deck lobby. The three decks are linked internally by a grand staircase – one of the defining elements of the interior layout and design of the yacht.

The upper deck features a large modern salon, that features a lounge/bar and a TV area. Going ahead along the portside corridor there is the wheelhouse and a comfortable Captain’s cabin.

The upper aft deck contains a covered casual dining area that seats 8. The aft part of the deck features a large U-shaped sofa. From the upper aft deck, you can climb the starboard stairs to the delightful sundeck.

The aft park of the sundeck is equipped with custom pool, fully covered with mosaic, surrounded by luxurious cushions and sunpads. The forward portion features lounge chairs for taking the sun, a dining table, and a bar overlooking the bow of the yacht.

The main tender is stored in the lazarette. The transom hatch opens to facilitate launching of the tender. Power on board Ancòra comes from twin 2400 HP Caterpillar 3512C's, allowing for a maximum speed of 16,5 knots and range of 4.500nm when cruising at 12 knots.

Ancòra is the sixth vessel launched by Cantieri Navali Baglietto in less than 8 months: The previous vessels were the 42m Natori, 42m Oxygen, 44m Apache II and 53m Baraka and 58m Vicky.

The history of Cantieri Navali Baglietto spans the birth and development of the whole Italian yachting industry, with this famous company dictating styles and trends, and developing technology that has since become commonplace in Italy and abroad. Since 1996 Cantieri Navali Baglietto have entered a dynamic new phase by acquiring the Cantieri Ferrari in La Spezia and greatly increasing its productive capacity. Since then they have started to produce a series of displacement yachts that, like their high speed planing vessels, have become a point of reference for the world's yachting industry.
