Luxury yacht TWENTY EIGHT is capable of a maximum of 28 knots, so you and your guests can spend more time at your destination than in transit.

The tonal interiors impress with contemporary charm and an immaculate appearance throughout: the main salon and dining area uses metallic surfaces and highly polished wood against cream carpeting and sofas to great effect.

Sizeable windows allow guests spectacular views as they dine, and guests can socialise out on the aft deck for panoramic views any time of the day. A swim platform provides guests with ease of access when entering and leaving the water, especially with the choice selection of water toys.

For sunbathing, there are sunpads on the foredeck that take in uninterrupted views of your Mediterranean destination, while up on the flybridge a retractable canopy provides open or shaded alfresco dining cooked on the nearby grill. After your meal, sip on a cocktail from the wetbar and watch the stars emerge in the sky.
