The interior and exterior layout was designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder Design and her naval architecture was completed by Ron Holland Design for a harmonious environment inside and out. Her innovative energy saving features include glass laminates which darken and become more opaque from exposure to intense infrared heat. The result is a better temperature controlled interior where the air-con is needed less frequently. Adding to her energy-saving measures is a bank of lithium batters that charge while under sail, reducing the dependency on her hybrid generators.
