In all of the three levels of the S55 we can find a flybridge which allows for some stunning views of the area around, as well as a 40m² air-conditioned salon. Inside we can see the room decorated with a neutral colored pattern with some red decorative elements giving a little more vibrancy to the mood of the division.

This ship will be powered by the sunlight captured in by its 30 mounted solar panels. This will provide enough power for her to sail during an entire day (though she has a fuel-based back-up engine). The vessel will be run by two silent 30kW motors which will allow the S55 to hit a maximum speed of 12 knots.

The operation will be conducted by  Captain Ajun May from Germany who also piloted Burma Boating’s SY Y Not yacht. According to him,  “guests can look forward to wining and dining in comfort, in between diving, snorkeling, and swimming among the 800 islands, coral reefs and atolls of one of the world’s last untouched paradises”.
