From here, galley stairs lead down to the crew quarters where there is accommodation for three in two cabins with the option of accommodating a fourth if required. With an outside door in the galley the crew can go about their duties without imposing on the guest areas.

With the master suite at the forward end of the main deck there is the potential for wonderful views from the bed through the large side windows. A settee on the port side and a desk/vanity unit on the starboard side make this a great private area for relaxing and this is enhanced by the bathroom with its full length spa bath complete with dark marble surrounds and marble decks. The whole atmosphere exudes luxury.   

Giving access to the master suite is a small foyer on the starboard side where a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door gives access to the deck. This would be the main access point when alongside a jetty, and from here you can get to most parts of the yacht with a short passageway forward leading. This leads first to the day head and then to the master suite, stairs down to the cabins and up to the pilothouse.

Down below there are two twin cabins and two doubles each with its own bathroom. Again there is solid marble featured in all the ensuite bathrooms that adds to the feeling of luxury. But for these cabins, the bathrooms have showers rather than a bath and the size is more compact.

Throughout the accommodation there is a feeling of quality. Over 800 square metres of leather have been used in the decoration and it is used on panelling, furniture and on many of the surfaces. It is combined with walnut wood and touches of stainless steel to give a sense of restrained formality that is easy to live with. These luxury finishes demonstrate one of the major advances of a displacement hull where the performance is not compromised by adding extra weight and there is a very solid feel to the furniture and fittings on the Delfino.

The pilothouse is at half height, with stairs up from the foyer leading into a workmanlike space. The first thing you notice here is the vertical curved windscreen, which is a dramatic change from the normal sloping windows found on most motor yachts. These vertical windows are a much more practical solution than the sloping windows and offer a clear view ahead and to the sides. Reflection, which reduces visibility, is lessened as a result.
