Previously known as Amadeus, The 1,622 GT Felix underwent a major refit in 2014 and can accommodate up to 12 guests in six luxurious cabins designed by the French yacht designer Francois Zuretti. Under full power, Felix reaches a maximum speed of 14 knots and cruises at 12.5 knots - a speed at which she has an impressive transatlantic range of 8,400 nautical miles.
