Once completed, luxury yacht ALKHOR will feature 6 decks of balanced indoor and outdoor spaces for entertaining and amusements: The main deck contains a large swimming pool and sunbathing areas on the bow, while the skydeck Jacuzzi offers a custom touch with a glass-bottomed Jacuzzi that lights the stairwell and lift (elevator).

The Owner’s apartment is located on the upper deck and contains a private lounge, en-suite bathroom, an office and a terrace for sweeping views of every destination while offering serenity away from the main group.
