The huge expanse of aft deck is highly versatile with helicopter landing facility (MCA approved), transom swim platform and extendible passarelle. The aft-cockpit is equally adaptable, with shaded seating for up sixteen guests and dining for twelve. Stored in the over-hanging deck-head is a large retractable movie projector screen, which can be enjoyed from the cockpit, or else reversed and viewed from the aft deck. The forward tender recess converts into a Jacuzzi. There is a demountable teak reclining seat which is mounted on the pulpit.
The yacht’s interior, designed by John Munford, is panelled in flame mahogany wood with precision joinery. She is decorated in an Art Deco style with furniture designed and built for “Tiara” by Patrick Gaguech. Accommodation is for 10/12 guests in five separate staterooms, all with fitted marble en-suite bathrooms.
The main saloon is accessed from the cockpit through one of two sliding glass doors. Once inside, there is ample seating with a hidden flat screen TV, large screen movie projector and a state of the art music system. Moving forward is the elevated wheelhouse.
Beyond the wheelhouse is the dining saloon with seating for twelve. Also with a hidden flat screen TV, which can be used for video conferencing.
Forward of the dining saloon there is what is effectively the Owner’s Duplex apartment. The main deck Owner’s saloon allows for fabulous views, a desk with pop up computer screen, a flat screen TV (new in 2010) and comfortable seating.
Access to the Master suite is via a staircase from the forward saloon which includes a spacious lobby leading on to the en-suite bathroom clad in sumptuous marble which includes a bath, two wash basins and a large steam shower. The full beam Owners cabin is situated aft of the lobby and includes a King-size bed and full audio-visual entertainment system. The large portholes allow for great views and natural light.
The aft forward starboard guest cabin can be accessed via a “secret” passage way from the Owner’s cabin.
The guest accommodation is accessed via stairs from the main saloon. A high degree of flexibility is provided by a full width VIP suite that can be sub-divided with a sliding panel into two separate staterooms. The remaining two guest cabins each have either a double bed or can convert to a pair of twin beds. Each guest cabin also contains a hidden Pullman berth.
All the staterooms are en-suite and have full entertainment equipment, including flat screen Apple TV, DVD and CD.
The machinery space is situated amid-ships. The lazerette has ample storage for a tender, water toys and deck equipment. It gives good access to a huge hydraulically operated transom fold down swim platform, which provides an excellent “Beach club” with shower and bathing ladders.
There are two helm stations on either side of the upper deck. A central dining table provides surround seating. There is also a wet bar with flat screen TV and three separate sunbathing areas. There are two running machines stored underneath the aft sunbathing pads. The entire area is protected by a new composite awning. (New in 2009)
Access to the wheelhouse from the main deck is via stairways on both sides of the yacht situated in the passageways between the dining saloon and the Owners saloon. Access from the wheelhouse to the fly bridge is via two pneumatically controlled hatches. The wheelhouse has two sofa’s situated aft allowing for superb visibility.
