The yacht features Dutch naval architecture by Van Oossanen including the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) and an exterior design by Omega Architects.

The vessel has two MTU 16V4000 M73L engines. Each engine has a power of 2,880 kW @ 2.050 rpm — enough power for the yacht to reach 21 knots. At her economical speed, SAMURAI has an operating range of 4,250 nautical miles with a fuel capacity of 114,300 liters.

The steel-hulled yacht with aluminum superstructure received the Lloyd’s Register 100A1 SSC Yacht Mono G6 MCH, UMS classification under special survey. It has a lightship displacement of 935 tons and a gross tonnage of 1,029 GT

On the main deck are also the guest area with four double cabins. The study on the bridge deck turns into a fifth guest cabin to welcome 12 guests in total. The lower deck contains the crew area with the mess, galley and seven double cabins for a crew of 14 plus captain’s cabin on the bridge deck.

The interior design by RWD contains colorful accents to the dominating light grey color scheme. Thanks to the large vertical windows, the interior has a lot of natural light.
