It can easily accommodate up eight seated guests around a folding table on which you can lay out a beautiful celebratory feast. This all takes place outside in the fresh air under the sails against the backdrop of picturesque scenery sliding by. The yacht’s saloon is equally comfortable, offering guests a range of additional amenities including a TV on which one can watch either scheduled programmes or some DVD. There is also a well-fitted galley with hot and cold water, a gas cooker, large fridge, freezer and microwave oven.
For the convenience of guests, there are two WCs with a shower, a powerful 220V 2.8kW power system, an audio system, a “wine cellar”, autonomous heating for use in cooler weather, as well as all you need to arrange your hairstyle before important photo sessions such as a wedding photo shoot on the yacht.
