Italian style and panache with robust build for serious passage making without effort. She has had a number of significant refits through life, the last of which was carried out at Pendennis in the UK. She is now professionally maintained and has been successful on the charter market, but would also be excellent for serious world cruising. She has an epic beech interior into which light floods. She turns heads wherever she goes.

Summary of Accommodation:
The yacht is light and airy throughout with the use of an unusual combination of light spruce woods, stainless steel trim, teak hatch surrounds and white headlining. This look was specifically designed for the yacht by Gae Aulenti, the famous Italian interior designer and architect who designed, among other things: Le Musee d'Orsay in Paris; the Contemporary Art Gallery at the Centre Pompidou in Paris; the Palazzo Grassi in Venice; and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. Recent modernization of the interior detailing, and the “head and shower” areas, have improved the yacht even further.
