Guests arriving by tender ill disembark onto the spacious swim platform, where they have access to the tender garage and the main deck aft, where the stern and the sides create an alfresco lounge using three plush sofas, two coffee tables and two armchairs. The port and starboard walkways lead forward, and the latter walkway connects up to the foredeck, where there is another C-shaped sofa and two drinks tables, plus a broad sunbed. Between this guest area and the bridge, there is storage for the tender and water toys.

Guests can leave the foredeck to dine alfresco on the aft upper deck by using the port outer walkway. The aft is furnished with a circular alfresco dining table for intimate outdoor meals, and a plush sofa along the stern.

The sundeck has a massive sundeck Jacuzzi surrounded by sunbeds, while amidships the hardtop shades a port wet bar and starboard seating consisting of an L-shaped sofa, a large raised table and additional movable chairs. Sun loungers are placed along the stern for up to four guests to relax in the sunshine.


On the lower deck, there is a sizeable tender garage in the stern that also contains a day head, and forward there is the engine room followed by the guest accommodation and then the crew accommodation.

On the main deck, the Master suite is placed forward with the main foyer amidships to port and the galley to starboard. A crew corridor connects through to the formal dining area, which seats 12 guests for a lavish meal in beautifully decorated surroundings. The main salon to the aft has an elongated sofa along the port wall and a second aft-facing sofa creates a sense of separation between the formal dining area. A pair of armchairs and two large footstools that double as coffee tables complete the setting.

On the upper deck, the bridge deck is placed forward and has a sofa where guests can unwind indoors and take in the forward views. Behind is the captain's cabin followed by a sky lounge offering a bar, two crescent sofas, two circular drinks tables and a widescreen TV on the forward wall.

A pair of MTU 16V 4000 engines produce a maximum speed of 23 knots, a cruising speed of 11 knots and a range of 3,100 nautical miles.


The accommodation sleeps a maximum of 12 guests across 6 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins. The crew of 9 will provide the first-class service throughout the cruise.

The Master suite is placed on the main deck forward and is accessed via the walk-in-wardrobe for greater privacy off the main foyer. A sofa is placed to starboard and a king-sized bed is amidships on the back wall, a desk to port and another wardrobe behind. A widescreen TV is placed on the wall opposite the bed, and the forward en-suite bathroom has two entrances, with a toilet and bidet to port and a shower to starboard. The centre of the bathroom has two forward sinks and a bathtub behind.

The lower deck hosts the rest of the guest accommodation, where the VIP stateroom is placed to starboard and forward of the engine room and as a desk, king-sized bed, widescreen TV, large wardrobes and a port en-suite bathroom furnished with two sinks, a toilet, bidet and shower.

The double cabins are placed to port and starboard in front of the VIP stateroom and each has a queen-sized bed, a large wardrobe, a widescreen TV and a forward bathroom fitted with a toilet, bidet, sink and shower.
