The ya­cht sports th­ree decks and a sun­deck all spe­cial­ly de­si­gned and de­tai­led to of­fer the sort of com­fort, li­vea­bi­li­ty and pri­va­cy for whi­ch Co­de­ca­sa ya­ch­ts are re­no­w­ned. Their in­te­riors of­fer wel­co­ming and bright spa­ces fil­led wi­th na­tu­ral light whe­re the de­cor is con­tem­po­ra­ry but not mi­ni­ma­li­st and the fur­ni­tu­re whi­ch tends to be al­mo­st clas­sic is flan­ked wi­th mat­ching orien­tal de­tails. The main deck sports a lo­ve­ly stern coc­k­pit area wi­th ma­de to mea­su­re teak and lac­que­red ele­men­ts in me­tal grey co­lour, the sa­me as the top­si­des and alu­mi­nium su­per­struc­tu­re, whi­ch al­so ta­kes the lion’s share in dif­fe­rent hues of the sa­me co­lour th­rou­ghout the in­te­riors wi­th so­me whi­tes and di­ver­se sha­des of yel­low and ivo­ry ex­ten­ded to fi­ne fa­bric and car­pe­ts crea­ting an ele­gant play of geo­me­tric de­si­gns.

The main sa­loon’s floo­ring is all in whi­te­ned oak whi­ch plays an im­por­tant ro­le in am­pli­fy­ing the per­cep­tion of spa­ce and bright­ness. Back to back twin po­pup te­le­vi­sion screens lod­ge in­si­de the di­sh and cu­tle­ry con­tai­ner so that en­ter­tain­ment, news and mo­re can be viewed from the di­ning room area and al­so from the li­ving/loun­ge area. The ship’s gal­ley is si­tua­ted ad­ja­cent to the di­ning area. It is func­tio­nal and com­for­ta­ble to work in, it is ful­ly equip­ped wi­th Gag­ge­nau and Mie­le ap­plian­ces.
