News comes from IYC that it has taken on the listing of the new-build superyacht Anatomic 42 for sale.
Broker Scott Jones tells me the Russian who commissioned the 42 metre Eurocraft design several years ago walked away from the project midway through the build at Italy's Tiranian Yachts. The renderings show a sporty semi-displacement motor yacht with a long stripe of window that swoops to a dynamic bow shape. Now, the aluminimum hull and superstructure are complete, and the two Cummins generators and twin 4,000hp MTU engines are in place.
However, the interior remains a blank canvas for someone to create their dream ride. The drawings we've seen suggest generous space in two layouts: an 'open' version with a freeflow flybridge layout, featuring a lounge area, long bar, dining table and a whirlpool with a spacious sunbathing area; and a 'targa' with a large sky salon with a generous bar and lounge that has a sliding glass roof to allow guests to relax inside yet beneath the stars.
Accommodation is expected to be for 10 guests in five cabins. The stateroom includes a spa and extra study, and should be bright with good views thanks to expansive windows. She's no slouch either: Anatomic is projected to cruise at 24 knots and hit a maximum speed of 28 knots.
Jones tells us that full completion can be expected within 12 months from signature of contract; the price is available on application.
