Initially launched in 2008 by Eurocraft as MADHURI ONE, the yacht got an extensive refit with a Tommaso Spadolini design and shines bright as M/Y A2.

In my opinion, the 38m motor yacht A2 is a perfect example of what an older yacht can be after a refit with top designers like Tommaso Spadolini, who worked closely with the New York-based studio Peter Marino Architect and worked for the yacht owner in the past. Italian shipyard C.A.R.M. converted the plans of the designers into reality. The stakeholders did it within six months! M/Y A2 has now a bright interior with fresh colors.

Excerpt of the owner’s brief:

“I want a lot of light, big windows, three comfortable bedrooms and one big open space on the main deck.”

Because the yacht had no windows, it needed a new certification to realize the owner’s requirements of a lightful interior.

The yacht has a top speed of 31.5 knots, a cruising speed of 24 knots and an economical speed of 20 knots with two MTU engines.

Designer Tommaso Spadolini comments the project:

“When the owner was still considering buying the boat, we discussed a prospective refit to free up its massive potential. The owner went ahead and bought her in early 2018 and work started immediately. It was a challenging project as he wanted to make significant changes and gave the refit team just half a year to complete the job, which required a high level of cooperation and synergy between the owner, the designers and the C.A.R.M. shipyard in Lavagna.”

Interior of A2 after the refit

Almost the whole general arrangement of the original yacht was changed. The VIP cabin is still in the bow area, and also the crew area is in the aft area behind the engine room of the yacht. A2 got a captain’s cabin in front of the engine room. The two guest cabins are now the one big daughter’s cabin, the full-beam owner’s cabin moved a bit forward.
