The yacht is fully designed by AvA Yachts. The interior can accommodate up to six cabins, but the option for five cabins will also be available. In the case of six guest cabins, the layout will be five double cabins and a master suite that can accommodate up to 12 people. Three cabins are reserved for the crew with a captain’s cabin on the bridge deck.
