The interior of this superyacht was the vision of Patrick Knowles. Patrick uses natural lighting to accent cherry wood trim with crotch mahogany inlays and nickel accents. Marble is used to make a stately presentation but with minimalist style that catches the eye by dramatically contrasting combination of materials. The décor and furnishings are contemporary, with clean lines. A quiet color palate is expressed with shades of cream, along with light blues, rose and celadon tones. All of these elements, executed with a keen eye toward detail, come together in a timeless, elegant, and comfortable interior sure to enamor any guest.

The accommodations of this superyacht were designed with comfort and function in mind. There is a central movie and music server that provides guest with literally hundreds of viewing and listening options. Lighting is controlled by a touch screens located throughout Big City. She accommodates an owner’s party of ten in five staterooms and a crew of eight in five cabins. Staterooms are connected to the crew area via a watertight door that allows easy and discreet servicing of the guest staterooms.
