There are also two tenders stored on board for the guests and the owner.

The interior was designed with practical use in mind. Bannenberg & Rowell created a simple, yet beautiful interior, which features wooden floors, as well as some details of oak, walnut and wenge. Marty Lowe created stylish and sophisticated decor with soft furnishing, artworks to achieve a calm atmosphere of the West Coast.
