The 349GT interior has accommodation for a total of 11 guests in five cabins, including a full beam master on the main deck. Three double cabins and a twin with a Pullman berth make up the rest of the guest accommodation. The lower deck crew quarters meanwhile allow for a staff of seven.
Key features on board Bangdang include a side-loading tender garage, large beach club with its own bar area and a sun deck equipped with a spa pool.
The propulsion system, which was developed in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, consists of twin 2636hp MTU 12V2000 M96L engines for a top speed of 24 knots. It also features steerable carbon thrusters and takes up less space in the engine room than a traditional shaft-drive unit.
