The 4 double cabins are distributed equally, 2 at the front and 2 at the stern. There’s space for 2 additional guests in the large bed that can be set up in the dining room. 2 cabins have the option to choose between a double bed or 2 singles.

The beds are all at least 2 meters long, and come with sheets, pillows, duvet, and bath towels. In the cabin there are charging sockets and USB ports, always active.

There are 3 bathrooms in total; the one at the bow has a shower in a separate room. Each bathroom has a sink with hot and cold water, an electric toilet, and a shower.

In the center of the boat there is the large dining room with sofas around it and the complete and fully-equipped kitchen with an electric hob, a huge refrigerator, a microwave oven, and a sink. Crockery and tea towels are provided.

The upper deck, or flybridge, can be reached from the dining room via a staircase. Once up there you can enjoy a global panoramic view. Here there is a table with seats around it, ideal for having lunch while sailing or dining while admiring the sunset.

You’ll spend most of the time on the flybridge; for this reason, it’s covered by a large awning that protects you from the sun and rain. The panoramic driving position guarantees maximum visibility during navigation and maneuvers.

This boat also offers 2 large sundecks that can be used with beach towels.

Propulsion is guaranteed by a diesel engine; the propeller transmission system is solid and reliable even when navigating in shallow water areas. During navigation, the engine recharges the batteries and produces hot water which can then be used for the shower or the kitchen. When moored in a port, the boat can be connected to the electricity network using a cable supplied.

On board there is a power generator that is used to operate all appliances even if you are outside the port and disconnected from the electricity grid.

You can connect your smartphone to the Wi-FI radio so you can listen to your music both inside and on the upper deck.

The yacht is equipped with lateral thrust propellers at both bow and stern, which can be controlled by a joystick located on the flybridge. This system guarantees great ease of operation and is highly appreciated.

To ensure maximum safety during navigation, we have equipped the yacht with an echo sounder to check the depth of the river and a satellite remote monitoring system, enabling us to guarantee maximum assistance.

A powerful hot or cold air production system is present on board, similar to systems found in our homes. This is powered by the electrical connection in the port; it therefore cannot be used when you are outside the port. The system produces hot or cold air, as desired, for the cabins and living area.

We suggest turning off the system if you are not on board, or if it is not needed, as it cannot be left on constantly.
