Designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta, the Christella II boasts an exterior featuring flowing lines and extensive glazed surfaces matched by liveable interiors collaborated with UK-based design firm Aqualuce.
The upper deck contains a rest and relaxation area, a sun lounging area, the helm station and a dining area with opening roof and mood lighting, plus an open-air living space in the stern. The sun deck is furnished with two sofas.
The owner’s cabin on the main deck – almost 7m wide and 3.2m long – has a separate wardrobe and a bathroom with shower cubicle. The main lounge has two huge glazed surfaces extending over the entire length on either side, and a sliding door that connects it with the outdoor space.
Four double cabins are equipped on the lower deck for guests, two with double beds and two with twin beds.
The interiors have warm colours and atmospheres: the main variety of wood used is Canaletto walnut interspersed with printed leather panels. The flooring in communal areas is parquet, with carpet chosen for the cabins. The marble used is Eramosa.
The garage can accommodate a tender up to 4.4m in length and the yacht is fitted with two 1000hp Man V8 engines, driving it to a top speed of 14.5 knots.
