She offers three large staterooms and three bathrooms, as well as a space aft of the full-beam midships master suite that can be configured as a utility room, laundry, crew quarters or additional accommodation with its own bathroom.

Entertaining spaces include a cockpit that opens out to the boarding platform to create an expansive water-sports space, a superb semi-enclosed alfresco deck and an inviting foredeck entertaining zone with a large comfortable wrap-around lounge.

Her interior is rich with premium fabrics, exquisitely hand-finished exotic timber cabinetry, in-vogue lounges, and plush carpet in all staterooms.
