The Italian shipyard Costruzioni Navali Tigullio di Castagnola Giovanni, in the marketplace since 1959, has manufactured "Angra" a 32 metre with two decks and a "flying bridge." The wooden motor yacht is the result of magnificent workmanship and a carefully selected choice of wood, for marine use, treated specially under the supervision of the shipwright and owner of the yard, Giovanni Castagnola. The shipyard's productive capacity, now reduced to one or two units a year, favours quality in as much as every single piece can be checked. Costruzioni Navali Tigullio's finished product is, hence, impeccable under every aspect. "Angra's" exterior design is modern characterised however by classic details. The interior design is a mix of modern and classic furnishings enhanced by luminous wide spaces. The luminosity derives from the lateral wide window panels. Five cabins are at the owner's and his guests' disposal for a total of 10 berths whereas the five man crew's quarters are billeted in a separate area. The areas in common are distributed along the main deck. Moving from the bows towards the stern, one encounters a large galley fully equipped with the last generation of household appliances, a dining area partitioned off into two by a bulkhead with two libraries and a large TV plasma screen followed, finally, by a large saloon with enormous sofas placed along its port and starboard sides with matching cocktail tables and two armchairs. This deck's outer space hosts two relaxing areas respectively at the bows and stern of the yacht furnished with a sofa and cushions for sunbathing on. The smaller deck above it, hosts the wheelhouse at full beam from where one can control all of the yachts instruments. It has two small armchairs for the Captain and co- officer and a charting area. To the stern of it there's a living room with an "L" shaped sofa in it. On the flying bridge there's obviously the second helmsman's wheel as well as another space for relaxing decked out with sofas, dining table, folding beds and bar. This deck is extended at the bows purposely so as to cater for two tenders manoeuvred by a powerful loading crane.
