“The connection between the exterior and interior architecture is very tight. What you see on the outside is what you get on the inside.”
The resulting effect has been to turn the main saloon into a light-filled conservatory on the water. To enhance this impression, there are no blinds or curtains on the main deck, instead liquid crystals in the glass can be realigned at the flick of a switch to dim the glass for additional privacy or solar protection.
