Built by the US yard Palmer Johnson in aluminium to a design by Ron Holland and delivered in 1992, Dance Smartly  (ex: Nipara, Shanakee)  features interior design by the Dutch studio Pieter Beeldsnijder. In 2000, her previous owners added a custom cockpit hardtop and windshield which were designed by Ted Hood Design Group.

On board, she accommodates up to six guests across three cabins comprising one master suite and two twins with Pullman berths, all of which are ensuite and feature entertainment centres. A crew of five is also accommodated for on board. 

Thanks to her single 345hp MTU diesel engine Dance Smartly can reach a maximum speed of 11 knots under power and 10 knots at cruising speed.

At the time of sale, Dance Smartly was listed at an asking price of $2,250,000.
