Sybaris

Seemingly suspended in mid-air, the stairs on this 70 metre Perini Navi sailing superyacht don’t interrupt the open-plan feeling of the flowing main saloon. Launched in 2016 with PH Design interiors, Sybaris was commissioned by serial yacht owner Bill Duker after a conversation with his seven year old son about what their dream yacht would look like.

Dubai
