Her exterior styling is the work of Omega Architects with naval architecture from Van Oossanen Naval Architects and is based on the NOVA PLUS platform and is a sistership to motor yacht HOME. The interior design was created by Mark Whiteley, who worked closely with the yacht's owner.
The accommodation will sleep 12 guests over five en-suite cabins, with a crew of nine for expert service.
