The 50m/164ft displacement yacht is built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure as part of the 50m Steel series, with a design from Clifford Denn and naval architecture and engineering from Heesen. Reymond Langton Design produced her interiors, which use stained walnut, bleached oak and earthy tones in the furnishings that contrast with colourful artwork and accessories.

The 50m design is a replacement for the highly successful 47m Steel series, with 13 ships in the award-winning series built and launched since 2001.

A pair of MTU 8V4000 M63 engines produces a maximum speed of 15 knots. While cruising at 12 knots she has a range of 3,800 nautical miles.
