The ship was conceived to combine maneuverability of a sport yacht, the highest standards of comfort and decor, and a shallow draft that allows calling at small marinas and secluded coves inaccessible even to many a big yacht, let alone cruise liners.
Cutting-edge technologies, such as pitch-killing stabilizers and sophisticated masses distribution, help make sailing comfortable at any sea conditions. Desalinators account for the unlimited supply of fresh water.
Our state-of-the-art hydraulic ramp at the stern of the vessel provides direct access to water for swimming and water sports.
Sails being our main driving power, we boast unbeatably low level of fuel consumption, on average 75 l per hour only, which is about 10 times lower than on a motor boat of a comparable size.
