Superyacht Loretta Anne launched by Alloy Yachts

Coinciding with the arrival of the Volvo Ocean Race in Auckland, New Zealand, Alloy Yachts has launched its largest motor yacht yet, the 47 metre Loretta Anne, previously known as hull number AY43.

Loretta Anne is the latest in a number of Alloy-built superyachts to be created by the successful design duo of Dubois Naval Architects and Donald Starkey. She shares some common characteristics with her sisters, although her raised pilothouse has vertical windows, and her additional 7 metres of length fits elegantly into a well-proportioned profile.

The spacious interior offers some modifications, like the presence of a large galley on the main deck. The owner's suite is forward in the main deck, while three double cabins accommodate guests on the lower deck. A fourth convertible cabin is fitted out as a gymnasium.

Lloyd's classed, Loretta Anne is powered by twin 1,600hp Caterpillar C-32 engines, and she's fully equipped with twin Caterpillar generators, and ABT thrusters and stabilisers.

The successor of two other Alloy motor yachts for a repeat client, Loretta Anne will be delivered this year. Her final destination will be the Florida/Bahamas area where her limited draught of 2.21m will give her much scope for cruising.
