Furthermore, there are myriad sun-lounging spaces, a retractable sundeck rook, and avant-garde interiors. The yacht is featured with a beam of 9.50 metres, and draft of 0.80 metres.

The vessel has a beautiful blend of a carbon composite hull design and a solar energy system that ensures noiseless cruising with emissions. The cruising speeds are 6.2kn and comply with high European standards, like utilising innovative techniques with materials like composite, carbon, and steel.
