Built in aluminium by US yard Trinity Yachts to a design by Geoff Van Aller, she is ABS classed and was delivered in 2010. She is a sistership to the same yard’s Mine Games and Norwegian Queen, although with several improvements. Notably these include a sixth stateroom on the bridge deck so that her elegant Patrick Knowles interior now accommodates 12 guests in comfort.
The accommodation is laid out as a full-beam split-level master suite on the main deck and a VIP suite on the upper deck, while below deck amidships are two doubles with king sized beds, another double forward and a twin cabin with a Pullman berth, all with entertainment centres, television screens and en-suite facilities. In addition, there are quarters for nine crew.
The spacious main saloon offers a lounge area with comfortable settees and armchairs, an entertainment centre including a 62-inch television screen and a formal dining area with seating for 12 guests. The aft deck focuses on al fresco entertaining with a table and ample seating, while the sun deck comes with a 12-person Jacuzzi, a large bar, lounging areas and sun pads. Twin 2,250hp Caterpillar engines deliver a cruising speed of 19 knots and she is fitted with zero speed stabilisers.
In January 2016, a comprehensive refit saw her receive a full paint job and pass her five-year ABS survey.
