The 90-foot (27.43m) pocket superyacht LITTLE BLUE boasts expansive volume for its size, providing spectacular and spacious interior and exterior living spaces.

Motor yacht LITTLE BLUE was designed and engineered for worldwide cruising, allowing its owners to explore remote destinations all over the world for extended periods of time. Featuring a steel hull with a bulbous bow, the luxury yacht provides comfort and safety while cruising.  Engineered and constructed to a very high standard, LITTLE BLUE has fantastic capability as an expedition yacht with the décor and general arrangement that exceeds expectations.

LITTLE BLUE features a beautiful, traditional interior that has been updated, creating a modern, fresh ambiance. Her interior has lovely wood joinery and paneling throughout which gives her a very rich and comfortable feel.  Her main salon and skylounge are welcoming with an abundance of natural light from large windows that surround; both areas feature ample seating for relaxing and socializing.

Featuring four lovely staterooms, LITTLE BLUE can accommodate eight guests. She has a luxurious on-deck master stateroom with a king-size bed and en-suite bath that is adorned with custom marble and heated floors. Her additional staterooms include a VIP below deck alongside two identical double-bed guest staterooms. She also features two crew staterooms, accommodating up to four crewmembers.

Motor yacht LITTLE BLUE exceeds her competition regarding the expansive exterior deck spaces. Her aft main deck is comfortable and close to the water while her massive upper aft deck and flybridge offer alfresco dining and multiple seating areas.  In particular, the flybridge is a popular area as it provides a great bar and seating area under the hardtop for unwinding and endless views of your surrounding destination.  Further aft is a large sunbathing area for chaise loungers.  LITTLE BLUE has a garage at the transom for its tender and toys, allowing all of these decks to remain uncluttered for guest use.
