The boat’s exquisite interior design is complemented by luxurious amenities inspired by the resort,  providing guests with unparalleled levels of comfort and style. As guests step onboard, they will be greeted by an elegant interior featuring spacious seating upholstered in plush leather with sophisticated hand-stitched trim. The VIP seating features a fully electric adjustable backrest, footrest and recline settings as well as wireless mobile phone charging capabilities and suspension for the smoothest cruise experience. To the rear of the vessel, an outdoor VIP lounge awaits with luxurious leather sofa-style seating located on the teak deck – the perfect spot to take in the breathtaking local surroundings and panoramic views en route to the resort.
