Unfortunately, there are currently no interior pictures available but Heesen describes the interior design as follows:

Gatto created bespoke pieces of furniture for the main saloon and sky lounge, which are both exquisite and highly distinctive additions to White’s interior. A versatile round coffee table in glossy ebony, stainless steel and leather features a convertible top that adapts to requirements – either an ice bucket for grand entertaining or leather tray for sophisticated living, while the custom-designed sofas with Loro Piana upholstery has armrests that encompass bookshelves.

A sense of space and relaxation is the key-theme throughout the yacht, both inside in private and social areas, and outside where fabrics from Hermès have been used for the decoration. Refined detailing and a neutral palette that spans from white to brown passing through all hues of beige, hazel, and caramel, create highly sophisticated environments. Glossy ebony and Canaletto walnut surfaces have been used throughout the yacht.”.

Delivery is scheduled for April 2018. Another yacht with this design with the project number YN 18750 is scheduled for Spring 2019.
