Lanakai combines a detailed fishing-focused inventory, tailored cockpit and "elegant, contemporary interior."

The bow

The four-deck sportsfisher was designed by Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD), which was responsible for both the naval architecture and the exterior design. "Lanakai is an impressive vessel on many levels," said Yachting Developments managing director Ian Cook, "It's not until you're actually on board that you realise the sheer scale of the vessel and the numerous design elements that came together to achieve her."

The sundeck

Key features include a lower deck games room, foredeck tender storage, an upper deck helm station and sun deck, which includes sun loungers and a control station.

The cockpit

The cockpit is packed with fishing accessories and has been entirely tailored to the owner's passion for fishing. Features include a Pompanette fighting chair and display that mirrors the captain's view in the bridge.

The bridge

The bridge is equipped with a full sized chart table, communications centre and displays showing the 360º sonar. The bridge is also used as a social space for guests.

The skylounge

Designed for relaxation and socialising with guests, the skylounge features a bar, desk and seating for guests.

The main aft deck

Extensive outdoor spaces on board Lanakai include the main deck aft, which includes an al fresco dining area and reversible seats for watching the cockpit.

The main saloon

The main saloon features lounge seating, fishing equipment storage, a large dining area, bar and access to the galley.

The master cabin

Accommodation on board is for a total of 10 guests comprising the large full beam master (pictured), a VIP, double and twin with two Pullmans.
