ANDREA is a 126-foot expedition full-displacement hull with brilliant design touches and outstanding use of space. One of her noteworthy achievements: she’s the first North American–built composite megayacht to achieve Lloyd’s Register classification. In addition to the usual regulation stability standards, ANDREA meets the “international severe wind and roll criterion,” something few yachts can do. Significant beam and ballast as well as engineering by the Delta Design Group allowed ANDREA to successfully meet this rigorous standard.
Classic European styling and elegant details distinguish her interior design by Michael Kirschstein of Henley-on-Thames, England. The salon and dining room are formal, vibrant, and inviting, with large opening windows, and fine woodworking in light veneers. Spanish furnishings, hand-painted tiles, custom glasswork, and art deco details embellish the interior. ANDREA has a full-beam master suite forward on the main deck and four guest staterooms below. Her sky lounge serves for casual gatherings and provides extra accommodation for relaxed socializing. Consideration for the crew’s ease and efficiency is another of ANDREA’s special features—the crew has a dining area adjacent the galley on the main deck with a large view window. Both the pilothouse and crew accommodations forward are spacious, and the captain’s handsome mahogany-finished suite includes a photographic darkroom.
For relaxing and entertaining out of doors she offers a wealth of choices on the three upper decks. Space allocation on the 48-foot flybridge is truly extraordinary. There is room for a crowd under the large aluminum bimini, with a comfortable U-shaped upholstered seating area and table, or among several more settees around the helm. A built-in barbecue, service bar, and dumbwaiter facilitate casual meals on the flybridge. Aft of the sky lounge on the boat deck there’s a secluded seating alcove for more intimate occasions. The main deck features generous sunbeds on the bow and seating for ten or more on the aft deck for al fresco dining or just enjoying the sights. ANDREA successfully combines luxury, safety, and comfort with design excellence, making her an ideal yacht for worldwide cruising.
