"Salacia" is a modern motor yacht built in 2005 by the Australian boatyard Evolution Yachts, designed by Sam Sorgiovanni Designs with the help of Peter Lowe Designs who handled the naval architecture. The resulting fusion of all these industry experts saw the production of an original motor yacht; firstly because of the unusual colour of the hull, where the shape following the generous side windows gives an overall sporting appearance and then for the superstructure, this too like the hull, produced with composite material with a vast array of surrounding windows that enhance not only the natural light inside but the feeling of looking at an unusual yacht. The interior has been designed to offer the owner unusual surroundings as well as being well finished and comfortable. Apart from the vast range of accessories, from sophisticated entertainment systems to numerous electrical appliances that help create a sense of comfort which on board a 34m motor yacht never goes amiss, it is the configuration of the interior itself that highlights the search for alternative solutions. Along the lower deck you will find the areas reserved for the owner and his guests and those for the crew members, strictly laid out with independent access from the main deck to ensure reciprocal privacy. In the middle of the boat is the owner's "full beam" suite furnished on the left with a double bed and bathroom with Jacuzzi, and on the right with a sofa-bed and further bathroom. These two areas can be separated using a sliding partition, a solution that allows you to create, if necessary, two separate cabins, each one with its own bathroom. Forward are two guest cabins with separate beds side by side and another two bathrooms. The crew's quarters, at extreme bow, have three cabins for a total of six beds. Even the layout of the main deck offers innovative solutions, like the forward area for example, entirely dedicated to the galley, laundry and storage services. Heading towards stern, we find the daytime bathroom and owner's study that can be transformed into another double cabin, the main lounge and dining area, created in a circular environment. As far as the living quarters are concerned, the main deck offers a couch in the cockpit next to the transom, the latter having a garage for a tender and ski jet inside. At bow there are a few steps that lead to a large sunbathing area, created above the superstructure. Between the deck and flying bridge is the full beam bridge that includes a small sofa and chart table. The flying bridge has a second steering position, sunbathing cushions, circular Jacuzzi and an area for eating al fresco.
