Walking up onto the main deck coming from the main saloon, the first thing you notice when stepping onto the aft deck is the sheer space on offer: very large, with a perfect configuration to seat 10 to 12 people comfortably in a vis-à-vis setting, nicely fitted out for sundowners or pre-diner cocktails overlooking the sea. This cosy seating area is ideal to read a book or to listen to Pavarotti singing Turandot’s Nessun Dorma.
Going up the winding, enter the Bridge deck saloon which is also called the vista lounge. Two extremely large and powerful, Bowes & Wilkins speakers, adjacent to the centrally located large Loewe television immediately catches the eye, and ear of the guests. The large and comfortable area has a corner with a games table and a large bar area on starboard side and a large sofa on portside and whether you would like a quiet and relaxed atmosphere or turn the saloon into a karaoke bar, you can. This area holds the definition of a true multi-purpose area and adjusts to the requirements of the most discerning client. The Vista Deck (bridge deck aft) has a large oval dining table made of teak with precious wood inlays and is the perfect place to enjoy a breakfast overlooking the ever changing coastlines whilst cruising at a gentle ten knots, fully stabilised and with the quiet purr of the yacht’s powerful engines, knowing she will take you to your destination in comfort and style. On the same deck, but forward to the bridge, and the best spot to overlook the sea whilst at anchor, this lovely round seating area is even sheltered from the wind when under way.
Returning to the main lobby, turning towards the forward section of the yacht and going through a small passageway, you will enter the master cabin, home to a study, a full width stateroom with a settee area to starboard, a walk-in closet and an extremely large bathroom with a his & hers vanity area. When returning to the lobby, and going one floor down towards the guest area, the forward part of the yacht accommodates two guest cabins that can be transformed into one large guest suite, by means of sliding doors, ideally for a family but also very practical should you require a nanny or a cabin for security personnel. The aft side guest cabins feature king size beds, a bath, adjacent bathroom facilities and ample storage for shoes, clothes and other luggage. They also have their own entertainment facilities. All guest cabins have their own theme and are named after opera Aria’s: un Bel di Vedremo, Celeste Aida, Nessun Dorma and O’mio bambino caro.
Going up yet another deck, the LADY ANASTASIA’s Sun deck does credit to her name, offering a vast areas to sunbathe, with sunbeds along a four person Jacuzzi, a service area under the radar arch, an outdoor cooking area with a grill, icemaker and fridges. The deck is large enough to hold a treadmill and a fitness bike. Finally, when the doors are open, a large bathing and seating area folds out onto the sea level, revealing the spacious garage where the jet skis, Seabob’s, tenders, diving equipment and other water sports toys are kept.
