The sizeable swim platform is perfect for sunbathing or exercise beside the water as well as for safe transfers to and from the tenders. A staircase to starboard leads up to the main deck aft, where there is a curving sofa along the stern that follows the oval alfresco dining table. Additional chairs complete the setting, and walkways along the side lead to staircases up to the foredeck, while another starboard staircase joins the main deck aft to the upper deck aft.
The foredeck in front of the helm station can be used for observation, and for the upper deck aft, the sundeck overhang creates a shaded space for alfresco lounging where there are two armchairs with footrests to port, a third along the stern and a sofa to starboard. A central coffee table and drinks tables provide places for guests to rest reading material and drinks from the sky lounge bar, with an additional tap placed in the forward port corner.
A starboard staircase connects to the sundeck, where the motorized water toys are placed along the stern and sun loungers can be placed in the spacious aft section, which can be shaded by a canvas. The hardtop provides sufficient shade for sunbathers to retreat to, with two large sofas and sumptuous armchairs placed around a coffee table. An alfresco dining table with eight chairs is situated opposite, while forward there is a sofa integrated into both sides with an elongated table to port. A broad sunbed is placed center and the helm controls and three sun-exposed chairs have sweeping forward views.
The lower deck hosts the crew accommodation forward and the guest accommodation amidships, with the engine room behind and the tender garage in the stern. On the main deck, the Master suite is placed forward with the single guest cabin behind and to port, followed by the galley and main foyer. To the aft is the joined forward formal dining area to seat 10 at a grand modern dining table made of wood, followed by the main salon in the stern. The main salon is comprised of two plush armchairs to port and starboard beneath the large windows, with a coffee table between them. Two stools are placed forward around the central square coffee table and the sofa to the aft is ideally placed for watching films in comfort from the 55" widescreen TV that is hidden in the cabinetry when not in use.
While the main salon has a cozy atmosphere through the use of cherrywood paneling and dark accents in the wallpaper and furnishings, the upper deck sky lounge has a light and airy ambiance with pale white walls and furnishings accompanied by mirrors and delicate accessories. The main seating area is placed to port and consists of a sofa along the wall, a forward-facing sofa with a 55" TV on the forward wall and drinks tables and a coffee table. Aft of the lounge is a wet bar ideally situated to also serve guests dining alfresco, and opposite there is a circular drinks table with five custom chairs.
