The striking exterior design is the work of VYD, while naval architecture is owed to Ginton Naval Architects. NB 115 boasts a contemporary interior by Red Yacht Design, which draws inspiration from the natural world and is reflected in the organic shapes, natural light and earthy tones. The choice of materials and innovative design elements heighten the serene and welcoming atmosphere.
