The enclosed flybridge has access through either the aft door or a spiral staircase from the saloon and doubles as a sky lounge with all the amenities including an L-shaped sofa and coffee table to starboard facing an entertainment centre and a 46 inch Sony flat screen television.
Accommodation is for six guests in three cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and a twin cabin, all with en suite bathroom facilities.
