The exterior lines of the yacht were designed by Redman Whitely Dixon. Also, the interior was designed by RWD in cooperation with Chahan Interior Design. Naval architecture was done in-house by Feadship de Voogt Naval Architects.

The helicopter hangar is located on the bow, that is also a games deck. After a game session, guests can enjoy an S-curved pool of 42,000 liters.

Tom de Vries, Director at Feadship:

“Creating a rigid shape with five ten-metre hatches in the hull represented an enormous structural challenge. This holds especially true when you take into account that the pool is also in the aft deck. It requires an incredible level of engineering that very few yards are capable of.”

The full-beam owner’s suite offers an 180-degree view and a three-metre-high skylight ceiling above the bed.

The main attraction on the sun deck is the gym with a great view over the ocean and a pizza oven. Guests can also a cinema on the main deck.
