The heads throughout the vessel are Italian Marble. The staterooms are all very spacious and uncluttered. All areas enjoy a state of the art AV system with KVH MobileCast iPad Crestron controllers.


The dining salon is open to the main salon and features a large round table with seating for 12. The main salon has a very large L shaped sofa and features a formal bar with seating that can accommodate multiple servers for parties and overlooks the aft deck.
