She represents an extremely innovative yacht in the performance cruising world, featuring a raised saloon with 360 degree windows for better panoramic views and a central engine room with two aft cabins isolated from any noise from the machinery and systems.
The innovation begins with the interior layout which provides a large sail locker in the bow, which can be also be specified as an optional ensuite crew cabin. A spacious owner’s cabin forward, with generous storage, available with either an island or an outboard bed. The galley is located close to the mast and extends across the full beam of the boat.
The wide saloon features the companionway off-set to starboard, which provides one big passage way to the guest cabins, all en-suites have separate full height shower compartments. In terms of size and storage volumes the two guest cabins have nothing to envy to the owner’s cabin forward.
The 3 meter long tender garage, with longitudinal access, does not intrude in the aft cabins at all.
The off-set entrance creates a spacious cockpit with a fixed table to the portside and a deck sofa to starboard side with a passageway in between.
The sail handling area of the cockpit features a central plinth dedicated to the mainsheet and two side winches.
The modern hull lines sport a wide stern with twin rudders and subtle dreadnought bow. The “T”-shaped keel offers two fixed draught options plus a lifting keel which does not intrude into the interior.
