The satinwood, light fabrics, and quality detailed stonework give this bright room a contemporary, luxurious, and relaxing feel.

To port is a full-service granite-topped wet bar, with a 50" flat screen TV (wall mounted above), icemaker, and refrigerator, and to starboard is a large sofa and coffee table.

This stylish galley is also finished with satin African Mahogany, granite countertops, and durable “Amtico” teak and holly flooring. Being positioned all the way forward on the main deck, this room benefits from panoramic views thanks to the sweeping forward windows, and direct access to the bow seating area is made easy via two wing doors on either side of the galley.

This level also features a well-appointed on-deck day head, with a window.

All staterooms are located on the lower deck, the master stateroom is full beam and features an oversized king berth, walk-in closet, and a his/hers head connected by a huge glass-enclosed shower.

All staterooms have flat-screen HD TVs with “Control 4” controls, and individual air conditioning units.


Carpe Diem features a generous flybridge with an integrated hardtop with a retractable glass section. A removable EZ2CY 3-sided enclosure, allows this area to be an open flybridge or enclosed. This versatile deck is air-conditioned for comfortable cruising during the summer months and can be heated if desired.
