The interior décor is impressive, with paneling in high gloss maple wood and no fewer than 11 different types of marble. The main saloon has a marble floor and seating upholstered in off-white fabrics grouped in several conversation areas, including a games table and an entertainment centre with a 60 inch Sony LCD television and a Kaleidescape server delivering on demand audio and visual throughout the yacht. Forward is a formal dining area with seating for 12 guests.
The huge aft deck has an abundance of seating areas and a large dining table with chairs, making it the ideal location for al fresco entertaining and dining. The sun deck offers sun pads, a mosaic Jacuzzi tub and a spa area with a steam bath, sauna and massage room while a fully equipped gymnasium has glass doors offering panoramic views.
Twin 12V 4000 M60 MTU diesel engines give her a range of 5,000 nautical miles and she is fitted with Naiad at-anchor stabilizers.
