The exterior styling by Clifford Denn takes inspiration from classic cars, producing flowing designs and functional details from bow to stern of this 50m/164ft motor yacht. The round-bilge steel hull is designed for long-range cruising in comfort, with twin MTU 8V4000 M63 engines producing a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 3,800 nautical miles cruising at 13 knots.

The interior will be completed by Reymond Langton Design in close collaboration with the Owners to personalise it to their preferences and lifestyle. The overnight accommodation sleeps up to 10 guests over 5 en-suite cabins, including a Main deck master suite and the rest of the accommodation on the lower deck.
