Columbus Yachts, part of the Palumbo Superyachts family of brands, has launched the all-aluminum, 164-foot, diesel-electric yacht Anjelif.

The fully custom build uses cold plasma to sanitize air coming from outside for ventilation and air conditioning. It also has a system that focuses on room sanitization at preset intervals each day. The first system is intended to eliminate airborne viruses and bacteria in the incoming airstream, while the second system automates the sanitization of each internal area of the boat.

Exteriors and interiors are by Marco Casali of Too Design. Engineering is by the Palumbo Superyachts team.

Design features include a main-deck gymnasium, a sauna and a massage room. A swimming pool at the transom is finished in teak, and there’s a hot tub on the top deck. At the bow, there’s sunbathing and a touch-and-go helipad that converts to an open-air cinema.

Accommodations include a master stateroom forward on the main deck, and four guest staterooms belowdecks. There also are quarters for 11 crew in seven cabins.

Look for the yacht’s world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show later this year.

Let’s talk performance: According to Columbus Yachts, Anjelif has a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. The diesel engine system includes twin 2,600 hp MTU 16V 2000 M96Ls, with twin 175 kW Kohler generators for the electric system. The hybrid setup means the two electric motors can help the yacht achieve about 9 knots, and can be used as shaft generators to allow navigation with the gensets off.
