She was also further upgraded in 2009 and is Germanischer Lloyds classed.

In the main deck saloon, the dining area is aft with seating for 12 guests at a large table while forward is the lounge area offering comfortable seating on a variety of settees and armchairs and there is also an entertainment centre featuring a large screen television set.
Outdoors, she boasts one upper sundeck and two huge deck spaces, entirely covered with teak, accommodating areas for sunbathing, al fresco dining and entertaining. Her top speed is 12 knots and she allows a maximum cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots with power coming from an 870hp Deutz SBA6M528 diesel engine.
