HAMPSHIRE II yacht interior
The interior of the Hampshire II yacht is defined as luxurious. With a classic and mahogany-paneled style, there is accommodation for 14 guests in 7 staterooms and 23 crew in 14 cabins.
The beach house opens out on two sides and has a swim platform and a swimming ladder that descends into the water from the stern.
The beach club is styled in a driftwood design, and the entire area flows seamlessly into the deck above with a skylight surrounded by seating.
The whole yacht is designed for fun, action, sport, and exploration, with the helipad on the foredeck converting into a multi-sports area for basketball, badminton, tennis, and football.
The traditional yachting interior also has a real wood-burning fire, a wine cellar in the underwater viewing window, and a private cinema on the lower deck.
The yacht’s action-packed features continue with a zip line that runs from the 25m crows mast to the water below, and each deck is a diving board.
The garage is packed with toys like windsurfing and diving equipment, mountain bikes, and tenders for all kinds of adventure on land and water.
