yacht Barchetta 157 is about as custom as a semicustom
yacht can get—with unique features that go well
beyond her bold interior decor that include
iridescent glass sink sculptures and
glow-in-the-dark glass inlays designed by Jaqueline
The yacht is the
latest in Christensen’s Advanced Production Series,
in which the builder starts a 157-footer every four
months with a goal of delivering three yachts a year
to busy owners who want a customized yacht but not
the hassles of the custom-build process.
Barchetta is the third such delivery.
Barchetta is the first Christensen to have a bulbous
bow which gives better fuel efficiency and range. It
also gives her better speed.
With a top speed of 17
knots, M/Y BARCHETTA boasts a very robust water ‘toy
box’ including a 35’ fishing boat, a water
trampoline and a submarine. Up to 12 guests can be
comfortable accommodated and entertained.
This 3' long Barchetta 157 model is a special order
and built purely from scant photos on the Internet.
The bow shape is different from the real yacht due
to client's request. Like all of our
yacht models, this yacht model has the
(very important), hollow hull construction, weighing
less than 10 lbs (A solid hull of this model would
be over 30 lbs and feel more like a toy rather than
an art piece.)
- The hollow superstructure is comprised of many
individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not
several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one
- Windows are cutouts (not black decal which will
curl up very soon), thanks to the hollow structures.
- >95% of parts are wood and metal.
