When she joined the market in 2019, the Australian studio commented that, “Her long sweeping sheer line accentuates the vessel’s generous size, while her smooth and rounded superstructure is a truly unique style that is timeless, yet elegant.” Secret yacht upper aft deck Photo: BurgessSam Sorgiovanni proposed a four-metre shorter design, but she was lengthened to “enable the owner to have a large fore-aft dining table and expansive seating on the main deck aft, as well as a big beach club aft of the tender garage,” Sorgiovanni explained.

As a result, she’s brimming with uncompromising charm. J.W HARRIS, the studio in charge of interior space, put a contemporary twist on the Art Deco era, making great use of bold and irregular patterns while imbuing all the modern trappings expected on a yacht of this calibre and class.
