  1. With an enormous 72” flat screen, her cinema projects gorgeous, near life-size images for the 10-seat viewing audience; whether movies, satellite television, slides, or immediate transfers from on-site digital sources. Volcanic basalt furniture and metallic curtains add to the ambiance.

  2. The Owner’s staircase represents an excellent portrayal of design principles which flavor this magnificent yacht: Dark eucalyptus contrasting with light, set against cream stucco walls and carpet, engage a perfect balance. Notice the clever angle of the banister as it joins the fragile artificial flowers; plus the red and green accents – fine art.

  3. Excellent design and contrast also categorize the owner’s office as it nestles below the striking panorama of planned cubes and color nuances. Eucalyptus, dark Makassar, faux crocodile leather, bamboo floor; it could readily be the design for a top echelon office building.

  4. Guest staterooms on Anastasia follow the design scenario in color and material choices. The queen size berth is raised on a carved elevation of dark Makassar wood.

  5. VIP Staterooms on Anastasia feature queen size berths, with original fine art over the headboards. Done in light rotan and white oak woods, they also utilize eucalyptus, bamboo and stucco. Floors are bamboo and sandstone. Each sports a complete bath, as well as a separate shower. Each has an additional fold-away Pullman berth.

  6. To facilitate the boarding process, Anastasia provides a C-Quip passarelle astern; as well as this convenient stairway leading down to an abbreviated dock. Passengers, or water toy mavens, can quickly make the short journey down to leave the yacht. Play’s the thing!

  7. A longer shot shows the entire offshore boarding dock system. Handy for offshore visiting, and/or boarding any of the yacht’s cadre of water toys.

  8. It all began when, prompted by their fascination for water sports –the family decided to engage Sam Sorgianni, a top professional who designed Greg Norman’s off-the-greens play-toy. Browsing through Sam’s expansive design portfolio, the entire family chose “The One.” His follow-up comprehensive plan led to Oceanco’s building proposal; the elegant cruising quarters, complemented by its array of water sports, produced this ultimate luxury craft. Shown here is the family’s 31’ Vikal Limousine tender, ready to launch from her garage.

  9. In this spacious lower deck garage, and lazarette, Anastasia stores wet suits, water skis, diving apparatus, with plenty of room for every detail, well organized and ready to go. Attending the gear and players are the two 31’ Vikal custom launches; each sporting opening bows for beaching, and ‘legs’ for independent storage, rather than cradles.

  10. Although many yachts offer runabouts and water skis, Anastasia shelters these special quarters which house the four individual-use tenders to accommodate fishing, speedboating, nitrox diving, competition jet skis, sailboards, waverunners. Stored below in the spotless garage. She sports her own rechargeable diesel fuel station to maintain them all at the top of their game.

  11. All the fun speed machines are lined up and ready to splash down on the starting line. This may be the most well thought out arrangement of water toys we’ll see for some time, especially on a private yacht. And oh, yes; her swim platform doubles as a touch-and-go helipad for the r/c inclined.

  12. At the heart of the Duchess are giant, twin 4000 series MTU V16s – pumping out 2,720 kW and propelling her up to 18 knots @ 2,100 rpm; with an expected range of 4,100 miles at a cruise speed of 14 knots. Her mammoth engine room is also completely thought out and arranged for ease of access and service. With a fuel capacity of 50,440 gal. – 194,000 liters – Anastasia can take you where you want to go.

  13. Keeping the Duchess steady is a 4-fin set of Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizers. Ship power is generated via three Cat C18's, developing 360kW. An additional Cat C9 stands ready to provide 150kW. Bumping the bow is a Jastram 250kW thruster while a pair of Wartsila 5-blade props swing the stern. And to stay the course, a Van der Velden, BARKE Ram-type rudder system.

  14. Anastasia's workshop includes a workbench with a wide-grip vise, integrated tool chest, pneumatic air supply, soldering station, cleaning sink and a complete rack of fasteners, right down to the last nut & bolt.

  15. And finally, for this magnificent yacht, Anastasia: A deep salaam is in order for the new Grand Duchess of yachting, as well as her talented Oceanco craftsmen: “Anastasia - Huzzah! All are so proud of her!
