She also has the ability for trans-Atlantic cruising and a range of 4420nm at 12 knots.Photo: Tom van Oossanen / Tom van Oossanen Developed in collaboration with the renowned Italian naval architect Massimo Gregory from Yankee Delta, the new superyacht was originally designed to feature an open sun-deck, but was altered to keep the area enclosed. The technical structure was not amended due to the use of FRP materials.

Her substantial lounging and entertainment areas, including a beach club aft and gym, is the design work of Italian designer Cristiano Gatto, who also worked on the yacht exterior. Guests can also enjoy the large pool forward and the upper-deck jacuzzi.
