Refits in 2015, 2017 and 2020 providing upgrades in underlying mechanical and visible living areas where a subtle fusion of classic meets contemporary in design. Warm burl wood panel accents against the sheen of marble counters chosen almost as statement pieces engage your eye in each guest area whether inside or out. Oversized couches and chairs are complemented by unique light fixtures throughout. Especially during the day, the large windows reveal exceptional volume throughout the main salon/dining (for 12) and skylounge which have thoughtfully been arranged in an open plan with inviting spaces. The exclusive feature here is the fold down balcony for guests to enjoy a coffee in the morning or cocktail at sunset while hovering over their own live aquarium at sea.
The Master Stateroom entrance is situated on the Main Deck forward. Upon entering, Owner’s office area is to Stbd and features a desk and chair. The walk-around King bed faces aft and features a flat screen TV, surround sound, ample drawer storage to port and full sofa to starboard. Walk-in wardrobe with full length mirror and safe. En-suite bath features a Jacuzzi Tub, separate shower, twin sinks, private toilet and bidet.
Uniquely positioned on the Bridge deck to port amidship, this very unusual VIP stateroom features a Queen bed with ensuite head including a stall shower. Views from this level are breath taking and unlike any other guest quarters aboard.
The 5 below deck guest staterooms are accessed by a wide stairwell with railings on either side and backlit steps light up at night. The guest foyer on this level provides elevator access to 2 more levels above for guests with limited mobility. [Opening dimension: 21´ / Circumference: 31´]
Queen Guest (3): The aft starboard and port side guest staterooms as well as the port forward feature a walk around bed each with vanity/desk. En-suite bath features large glass enclosed stall showers.
Twin (2) / Convertible: The portside midship Twin can be used as a King when converted, while the forward starboard side Twin remains fixed with comfortable wide mattresses for adults or children. Each en-suite bath features glass enclosed shower.
From the main salon to the skylounge, guests have a variety of social environments to enjoy. While on the exterior, there are two al fresco dining areas – aft main (8-10 guests) and bridge level featuring a custom and more friendly round table for 12 plus plenty of relaxation and entertaining space from the beach club all the way up to the expansive sundeck. A variety of cocktail bar areas and the alternate option of a spectacular seated view from the Portuguese deck forward of the bridge. An abundance of areas for guests to spread out when desired. Ease of access into the water offered by the cascading wide stairs from the swim platform further extended by floating platforms for water toy activities.
