The Warwick Yacht Design from New Zealand has recently introduced a new 150' yacht designed to comply with the strict MCA Rules. She features modern, sharp lines starting from the wide open bow and running then along four decks. A great deal of wide side windows underlines the importance of natural lightness in inner spaces; these distinguish itself by a plenty of room and above all by divisions right studied for giving all quarters an adequate privacy.

Below deck, for instance, is divided in three areas each with private access. In the bow we find the crew's quarter consisting of a dinning area with galley and dinette, three cabins with stacked berths each with its own bathroom, plus a laundry. Amidships it develops the guest sleeping area comprising two twin cabins with in - line twin beds, both with private bathroom, and two mirror - image VIPs, each with its own bathroom and hydro - massage baths.

In the aft end we find a huge hangar capable of hoisting a great tender, a ski jet and a small leisure submarine, plus a crew's cabin for one people right on the corridor leading to the engine room and services. The main deck offers aft a huge saloon with bar corner and game table, forward of which there is a dinning area for ten people. Going forwards it is access either to the galley or to a foyer where there are a ladder leading to the others decks, a service bath and an access to the owner's area that features an office, the owner's suite with relax and vanity corner, two wardrobes and a huge bathroom with Jacuzzi. Outside the main deck offers a giant cockpit fitted up with a circular dinning table and a long sofa recessed in the transom. The upper deck features an external fore area for relax with two C sofas and sunpads, while inside we find the command area with a full - beamed pilot bridge, a separate nav - station and a small sofa for relax.

The captain's cabin, consisting of office corner, double bed and private bathroom, has direct access to the wheel - house. At the centre of this deck it develops a comfortable saloon with bar that accesses through sliding glass doors to an external sky lounge comprising some sofas, seatings and cocktail tables. The sun deck is exclusively dedicated to owner's and guest relax and features a huge sun pads area with central circular spa, a double wet bar and an area fitted up with four sun beds.
