The Design Plans

As you step onboard, immediately, you will feel the space we have created, how we pushed the boundaries of 'small ship design’ for your comfort.

The biggest challenge our designers faced was to satisfy my instructions of providing a spacious and luxurious layout, never seen before on a small ship, for a maximum of just 24 guests within the 42 metres they had available. The answer came with a catamaran design and with that came 45% more width than a conventional hull. This satisfied my requirements and translated to large cabins and suites, generous ensuites, enormous interior dining and saloon plus an expansive aft deck where guests spend a large amount of their time. There is no small ship feeling anywhere onboard of being cramped. The completed plan is more like being onboard a small luxury private yacht.

Add to that space for a helicopter, four motorboats, a landing craft plus kayaks and my dream became a floating reality. We know you will enjoy our creation.
