The minimalist interiors will use pale wood and texture to create a warm and welcoming environment on trend with current design aesthetic. Designed with volume and function in mind, M/Y DAYS has plenty of other features on board:

  • The tender garage will have enough space to hold a 9m custom tender and an 8m custom tender, while also leaving enough room for an expansive beach club.
  • The foredeck has been designed with a helipad.
  • The superyacht will be used for both leisure and business and to ensure the owner’s privacy the skylounge and conference room can be privately accessed.
