The crystal doors that lead onto the main salon are more than 6-1/2 feet wide. There is also a nearly 10-foot-tall picture window.

A large salon features three settees, two laterally facing each other and the third forward next to a portable storage spa. A dining table accommodates 12 guests.

The owner’s cabin has an 11-foot beam and comes with two bathrooms.
