Before touching the water onlookers were rewarded with a full view of her refined hull colour scheme, comprised of white, tan and coal black for a striking contemporary appearance.

Tim Heywood (who designed the exterior for other recently launched Amels superyacht HERE COMES THE SUN) completed the exterior styling and the owner selected Laura Sessa (M/Y MADAME KATE, ASTRA) as designer of choice for the interior.

The hull was customised to meet the owner’s requirements, with modifications including:

  • port and starboard folding bulwarks on the main deck, plus sliding doors to the formal dining
  • area for a greater connection to the exterior space and natural surroundings
  • a main deck VIP suite with a secluded folding balcony
  • a bridge deck aft extension for the Owner’s suite
  • a 3m extension to the sundeck, creating 175m² of deck space
  • a 4m length 7,000 litre swimming pool with counter jets for swimming
