The yacht has a steel hull and superstructure and is developed using the latest in offshore ship technology. She also has ice-operating capability allowing her to travel in all waters across the world.
However, this expedition yacht remains luxury and elegance of the highest level. The Italian designers Nuvolari and Lenard were responsible for the exterior and interior design.
It’s a five-deck ship with 6 cabins for 12 guests and accommodation for 27 crew members. The owner’s cabin is on 3 decks and the guests have their own level.
A beach salon, swimming pool with a spa, fitness centre and a cinema are of course a must on a yacht.
She also features a six-man submarine, an helipad on deck and a hangar below.
