The hull, tested at the Brodarsky Institute in Zagreb, presents a forward bulb designed to optimize the performance of navigability and efficiency at an economical cruising speed of 12 knots, ensuring a range of 3,000 nautical miles.

The four cabins layout contains two widebody VIP cabins on the aft side and the fore side of the compartment and two convertible twins (or doubles) amidship. The owner's cabin is on the main deck and with two floor to ceiling side windows to for spectacular sea views and to flood light into the accommodation.

As for crew accommodation, the captain’s cabin is on the upper deck, while the rest of the crew is located on the lower deck, where there is also a crew mess and a laundry.
