The yacht, which provides both a conventional and a parallel hybrid propulsion system, features naval architecture by Van Oosanen Naval Architects, meanwhile Red Yacht Design is responsible for her exterior and interior styling.
The yacht was designed to integrate interior and exterior spaces, subsequently comprising a unique open deck feeling. Consisting of 135-square-metres of open space, the sun deck area provides a private space which can also be used for entertaining, as well as a Jacuzzi located aft, surrounded by 12 sunbeds and an outdoor dining area able to seat up to 12 guests.
The vessel can accommodate between eight and ten guests, with the owner’s suite located on the main deck including a private terrace and balcony, along with space for an additional four members of crew on the lower deck.
