Spacious, Modern Interior

The combination of soft, textured furnishings in neutral tones with contemporary art installations creates a striking and contemporary appearance. Sure to impress, the designers’ attention to detail is unmatched; from stunning bespoke features such as the black marble ceiling of the main salon down to the stylish lighting features with complementary forms, every feature and fitting of this motor yacht has been carefully considered.
The large main salon offers a stylish area for guests to gather; large L-shaped sofas, armchairs, and soft rugs invite relaxation and leisurely conversation, while sunlight pours in through the extended windows, accentuating the glossy wood floors and enhancing the feeling of space. On the upper deck, a second, large and inviting lounge area offers yet more options for socializing.

From early morning yoga sessions or workouts on the sundeck gym to relaxing on the swim platform before diving into the waves, this well-planned luxury yacht offers something for everyone. Alfresco dining options range from elegant dinners in the ambient lighting of the covered aft upper deck, complete with bar, to leisurely breakfasts with a warm morning breeze on the coffee tables of the sundeck.
