The steel and aluminium yacht, the third unit of the 102’ explorer yacht after Acala and Babbo, is engineered by Hydro Tec. The interior height allowances were increased to 2.18m and all the doors and windows were re-proportioned too.

The yacht comes with a 12mm steel hull, cupronickel piping, independent rudders, automatic generator parallel, electric fins stabilisers, as well as wastewater treatment systems for black, gray, and bilge waters that have been adapted from the world of work ships.

The layout of the garage is carefully designed to hold numerous toys and transportation vehicles, as well as a complete diving centre.

The sundeck was custom designed for both a lounge area – with a big sofa with up/down tables, a bar in the centre, a fully equipped open-air fitness area with a pool to keep up with their daily workout routines, even when the owners are at sea and far away from their regular gym.

Galego’s interior design by Arch. Pierluigi Floris uses walnut wood tones, complementing in the Poltrona Frau leather that covers 90% of the walls in all the yacht. The theme is pairing classical style and modern touches, especially in accessories and freestanding pieces of furniture, like Minotti and Baxter pieces.

The briefing for the kitchen was to emphasise the light from the large windows, so the choice has been the use of white with stainless steel for all accessories and appliances including a blast-chiller freezer, a water dispenser and a double wash area. The wheelhouse positioned at the bow reveals a full leather customised cockpit.

The yacht hosts a total of four cabins for the guests – a master, a VIP, and two guest cabins plus three crew cabins and a Captain’s double cabin adjacent to the cockpit.
