No effort has been spared in the challenge to produce a beautiful yacht that has exceptionally low fuel consumption and yet provides excellent sea keeping qualities and luxurious accommodation. She has now covered over 40,000 miles, weathered 50 knot winds and crossed both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. She has proven herself to be an exceptionally seaworthy, comfortable and fuel-efficient ocean-going vessel.
