The Waalwijk-based shipyard is responsible for the vesselโ€™s naval architecture, with Guido de Groot producing the exterior and interior styling from his drawing boards, taking inspiration from the yachts Grey Falcon and Nicostasia for a sophisticated and minimalistic look. The superyacht can sleep eight guests across four staterooms and accommodate up to three crew.
