The 42 metre explorer yacht Anda, listed for sale by Joachim Howard at Ocean Alliance in Australia, has been sold in an in-house deal.

Anda was built in steel by Norwegian yard Brodrene Lothe and delivered in 1965 as an ice breaker. In 2014 she was completely rebuilt as a luxury explorer yacht under the direction of designers Ocean Gecko. Honey-toned woods are paired with neutral soft furnishings, creating a warm interior accommodating 10 guests in five cabins configured as a master suite, three doubles and a twin. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities while the crew quarters sleep 11 members of staff.

Anda was asking $4,400,000

The main saloon offers plush seating, coffee tables and a full entertainment centre, perfect for relaxing and socializing. Separate and forward is the formal dining area, where high- backed chairs are grouped around the bespoke and stylish formal dining table. The lounge area boasts large panoramic windows to port and starboard, while the dining area features 270-degree wrap around windows, ensuring both spaces offer ample natural light.

Outdoors, the upper deck is the perfect area to enjoy al fresco living at its finest, offering a complete wet bar with seating, a dining option and an array of sun pads. Her top speed is 11.5 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 6,000 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from a 500hp Wichmann 5ACA diesel engine.
