Guests boarding by tender will arrive at the swim platform and reach the main deck aft via the joint staircases. Here, the expansive deck are can be used to store two tenders and there is room in the center for a comfortable alfresco lounge.
On the next level, the owner's deck contains two sun-exposed seating areas facing out over the stern. In the shade of the bridge deck overhang a grand alfresco dining table fits seamlessly with the pale teak deck and the fresh robin's blue egg of the outdoor lounges situated on the port and starboard sides.
Since the refit, the bridge deck no longer has a helipad, and space has instead been turned into an outdoor entertaining area, with two tenders discreetly tucked out of the way.
While the center of the aft deck has been left clear for dancing, there is a wide forward bar and plenty of seating placed around the stern and sides: Two curved sofas each surround a coffee table with a large sun umbrella in the center to provide shade. The sun-exposed seating on the port and starboard sides each have a large low table ideal for resting drinks and lanterns for an ambient night under the stars.
Above, the sundeck allows guests a place to soak in the sunshine in tranquil surroundings and the layout has sun loungers and a foredeck lounge for outdoor dining enjoying sweeping views.
The guest accommodation is spread across the lower deck and the main deck forward and consists of 1 VIP stateroom, seven double cabins, and seven twin cabins. Behind the guest cabins, there is a stately formal dining room where a group of 12 can celebrate a special occasion. Opposite, there is a guest lounge for quiet relaxation after a hearty meal.
Within the center of the main deck is the conference room, which can also be used to host lavish meals for up to 24 people at special dockside occasions. A waiting room and office further aft connect through to the magnificent main salon where pristine modern surroundings with art deco detailing create the hub for your indoor soiree. Rich yellow-varnished wood and golden accents create a warm environment against blue-grey furnishings and guests and visitors have plenty of seating to choose from, including an entertainment area where the sofas and armchairs are directed at the high-definition TV.
One of the incredible items aboard M/Y INDIAN EMPRESS is Elton John's grand piano, which occupies pride-of-place beside the fully-stocked bar.
The owner's deck can be shared with other guests or used exclusively by the occupants of the Master suite, while the two double cabins and two twin cabins could be used by close family members. The forward deck features a full-beam Master suite complete with walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom, and a widescreen high-definition television. The tremendous amount of space within this apartment contains two beautiful contemporary sofas placed on the port and starboard sides and a forward lounge consisting of two semi-circle sofas around a coffee table, which receive plenty of natural light from the multitude of windows. Here, guests can choose to take in the views from indoors or go outside onto the private terrace fitted with an outdoor settee.
The gym, sauna, steam room and spa are also located on the owner's deck beside the state-of-the-art cinema which can seat all guests in comfortable air-conditioned surroundings. The final room is the sky lounge, which offers a more intimate and less formal environment than the main salon and gives guests celebrating out on the large bridge deck aft a cool retreat. The fully-equipped skylounge bar is nestled near the windows, and the mirror-like ceiling amplifies the sunlight from the windows during the evening hours.

"A shipyard sells a yacht and after the warranty period has concluded, often the client and yacht are forgotten. If you look at Oceanco, we see the client as a client for a lifetime. We take care of all of them, even if he has a 25 year old Oceanco." - Dr Mohammed Al Barwani, Oceanco Chairman, a world-class builder of custom superyachts in the 80–140 meters range: "We pride ourselves in integrating fine old world dutch craftmanship with sophisticated new world know-how and TOMORROW’S TECHNOLOGY. To our craftsmen, PERFECTION is a point of principle. We encourage a philosophy whereby each individual feels personally responsible for the quality of the entire yacht."
