Designed by Ginton Naval Architects, the 40-metre superyacht Artpolars has been recently launched by Liman Shipyard in the city of Nikolaev, which has plenty of years of tradition of shipbuilding far before the Soviet Era.

Luxury yacht Artpolars is a four deck ship, including flying bridge. She contains two owners cabins, one on the upper deck, with a privet aft deck, and one in front of the superstructure. Below there are three guests cabins and the saloon as well as dining are on the main deck. The crew accommodation can sleep 9 crew, including the captain cabin adjacent to the wheelhouse. There are two exterior whirlpools bathes, on at the bow and one at the flying bridge.

He bought a mountain of marble, a football field of leather, a forest of wood and veneer and a large selection of golden bath accessories. Than together with the interior designers Olga Flekey and Marina Rets from FR Design, Kiev, they experimented building different combinations of colours and material as to reach the desired result.
