Sailing yacht Andromeda launched by CNT - Castagnola
by Raphael Montigneaux
Costruzioni Navali Tigullio - Castagnola announces the launch of Andromeda, the second hull in its 39m sailing yacht series.
We were the first to publish details and pictures of this sailing yacht series last year when Andromeda's sistership, called Renaissance, made her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2012.
Both Andromeda's and Renaissance's wooden hulls were built in Turkey under Italian supervision and then moved to Italy for completion and outfitting at CNT – Castagnola. The two classic schooners have been designed by a team of renowned Italian naval architects and designers, including Silverio Della Rosa for the naval architecture and sail plan, Studio Faggioni for the structural plan, Venelli & Kramer for the deck and exterior design, and Nauta Yachts for the interior design.
Her modern interior accommodates 10 guests in a full-beam master, two double and two twin cabins. The crew quarters for four are located aft, with a large galley. Two additional crew cabins are available in the bow with access from the foredeck.
Andromeda is powered by twin 400hp MAN engines giving a top speed of 12 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots under motor.
