Alloy Yachts Loretta Anne
When Alloy Yachts launched the 154-foot Loretta Anne in 2012, the New Zealand-based builder believed it had a winning concept. The yacht was the third Alloy for a repeat client, her exterior was a head-turner with a blue hull and silver superstructure, her Donald Starkey interior was contemporary and memorable, and she went on to win international acclaim for design and décor alike.
Now, Alloy is using Loretta Anne as the basis for its new M47 motoryacht, a 154-footer being marketed as a turnkey package at an all-inclusive process and price (which has yet to be released).
The Alloy M47 will be available in four models: a trideck with or without a teak beach club aft, and a flybridge with or without a beach club. The trideck version will accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms, while the flybridge version will accommodate 12 guests in five staterooms, including one with Pullman berths.
All four versions of the M47 have naval architecture by Dubois with interior design done in-house at Alloy. All versions also have quarters for eight crew. Standard equipment includes zero-speed stabilizers, the owner’s choice of Awlgrip or Alexseal exterior paint, and a helm electronics suite with Simrad and Furuno components.
Cruising speed on all versions is expected to be 14 knots with a top speed of 17 knots, driven by a pair of 1,600-hp Caterpillar C32 diesels.
Each new M47 will have a two-year warranty, which Alloy says is longer than what other yards offer. The builder also promises a streamlined, faster build process thanks to the yacht’s turnkey design.
