Interior Design The shaded sun deck is shielded from the wind by wrap-around, sliding panels for protection at anchor and while underway. Guests can lounge on sun pads, sip cocktails at the bar, dine around the extendable table, or converse while sitting on the bespoke club chairs and sofas.

Minimal divide Sun deck

There is minimal divide between the exterior and the interior. Thanks to glass sliding doors that act as a wind break, guests can move freely between the covered lounge area and the open decks fore and aft.

Multifunctional foredeck Bridge deck

The foredeck serves as a touch-and-go helipad or as a lounging space for sunbathing. At night, it can be transformed into an outdoor cinema with a portable 4 x 2.25-metre screen mounted on removable carbon pillars for a crisp, high-definition visual experience. State-of-the-art CAT Marine speakers deliver truly immersive sound.
