Belle Anna : a modern and sporty superyacht by Isa Yachts
Launched in 2012, the 50m motor yacht Belle Anna is a modern and sporty displacement vessel, built by the prestigious Italian shipyard ISA Yachts. Representing high volumes, great performance as well as low consumption, the Belle Anna superyacht was designed by Andrea Vallicelli in collaboration with ISA‘s in-house team, while its interior design was conceived by Francois Zuretti from Zuretti Interior Design.
The challenge when designing a 50 metre yacht is always the compromise between the accommodation and technical spaces. The ISA 50M Belle Anna is a clever concept which goes further than the usual A,B,C choice of designs. Belle Anna which has been developed from the platform ISA 50m CLASSIC has been customized to respond to the wish of a very demanding ISA’s client looking for a vessel offering big volumes without compromising the good design and comfort.
Indeed, Belle Anna features exterior lines magnificently styled by Studio Andrea Vallicelli Design which grant to this three deck superyacht a sense of movement even when the yacht is at rest. Moreover, the exterior design gives to the superyacht Belle Anna an overall dynamic, sleek and smooth look without affecting its excellent liveability and comfort.
While the slender bow lends it an aggressive look, the transom accessible by open stairs is wonderfully and elegantly shaped to leave space to a magnificent beach lounge opening to the swim platform through two large curved sliding glass doors and forming an important beach area: this is the ideal place for the owners and their guests to enjoy the sea in total relax and privacy.
The yacht Belle Anna can host up to 12 guests accommodated in six cabins of which five distributed in the lower deck amidships and the owner’s suite located in the main deck.
The magnificent interior design of the superyacht Belle Anna is signed by François Zuretti – Zuretti Interior Design. The Francois Zuretti interior is in a classic Art Deco theme, adapted to meet the owner’s requirements.
This Art Deco atmosphere features very specific materials: goat skin for the luminous ceilings in the Owner’s suite and above the main staircase, gold leaves for the ceiling dome in the Main saloon, stingray (galuchat) for the furniture in Owner’s suite and Receptions, leather works with exclusive leather, genuine leather, ostrich, eel, anaconda and other embossed leathers, lalique etched glass on door, portrait in moulded glass as a symbol of Belle Anna who has given her first name to the motor yacht.
The furniture is from Fendi, Baker, Pouenat, B&B, JNL and was specially manufactured with custom dimensions and finishes while the outdoor furniture is from Glyn Peter Machin in macassar ebony. Moreover, the decorative lighting is custom made by Mathieu Lustrerie, Swaroski, CTO Lighting and Porta Romana.
The walls are more linear with a general architectural direction punctuated by different finishes per area: the lower part boasts macassar ebony with vertical grain throughout the yacht featuring Art Deco style. The upper part is in bird of maple with different stains per cabin: Pink for the cabin of the yacht’s godmother (Owners’ daughter), anthracite grey for the son’s cabin, beige for guest cabins, taupe for Owners’ apartment…
The bathrooms are personalised for each member of the family, with free standing washbasin on marble top and different combinations of marble and mosaic. Finally, the Beach club has a classic colonial ambiance with a large sofa bed for siesta or meditation…
In short, the superyacht Belle Anna features all the pallets of a luxurious decoration without being ostentatious.
The naval architecture is done in-house by ISA’s skilled team of engineers. The maximum speed of 17 knots and the cruising speed of 14.5 knots are comfortably achieved with the two Caterpillar engines 3512C developing a maximum power of 2400 Hp each and allowing for a phenomenal range of 2500nm at cruising speed and 4750nm at 11 knots.
It is also worth noting her fuel consumption which is of 328 litres per hour at 14 knots. When you realise that the gross tonnage of the yacht is 498 tonnes the figures are looking pretty effective.
