Alloy Yachts’ latest launch, the 154-foot (47-meter) motor yacht Loretta Anne, has emerged from the New Zealand shipyard after 25 months of construction and was delivered to its new owners. With sleek naval architecture by Dubois Naval Architects and a Bahamas beach house–style interior design from Donald Starkey, this contemporary vessel accommodates eight guests in four staterooms, plus eight crew in four cabins. Flamed mahogany, crotch walnut, sycamore, cherry, zebrano, cedar, and other woods along with several types of stone complement the light fabrics and sea-life details, such as seaweedlike patterns in the bulkheads, coral- and fish-print fabrics, and framed underwater seascapes. A stunning mural by Toronto-based Vaclav Vaca graces the stairway wall.

Two custom tenders designed by Fontaine Design Group and built by Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders reside in the tender garage, which opens on three sides, allowing for the perfect tender-launching and diving-in point. A Novurania RIB and a Yamaha personal watercraft are stowed on the foredeck. A spa pool on the flybridge deck offers up onboard water options, and a gym ensures space to work off the fine food taken in at one or all of the several dining areas; the main-deck aft alfresco dining table seats eight, as does the flybridge table, and the formal dining space seats ten.  Plus, the yacht features three glass-fronted and backlit bars, and guests can sunbathe on the sundeck’s sunning pads.

Twin Caterpillar diesel engines give Loretta Anne a 17-knot top speed and a cruise speed of 14. The yacht has a range of 3,500 nautical miles at 14 knots. A state-of-the-art bridge with Furuno navigation and communications equipment and a helm station adjacent to the flybridge dining/lounging area provide the gear needed to get to the next port.
