All exterior decks have been designed to include water features which blend perfectly with the beautifully curved superstructure. Built-in features, such as table tops concealed in the ceiling, make her suitable for functions from as intimate dinners to cocktail parties.

The VIP cabin and four guest cabins which connect to each other are all on the main deck. The dining room can be converted into a video conference room with the optional use of the adjacent library. The donward foldable exterior bulwark ensures guests get an unrestricted view while dinner is being served.

The Master suite with its own pool balcony, is on the upper deck as is a sleeping cabin and a full beam lounge. The deck also contains a second VIP cabin and study which lies behind it. That cabin and study have drop down sea balconies and can also be connected with the Master suite, to create one large living area.

The bridge deck features a spa and a lounge which can also be converted into a movie theatre was designed by the owner who has given the area its bamboo finish. The owners’ input is evident in the layout of the spa lounge.
