Her interior was fashioned by the British design firm Redman Whiteley Dixon, a UK-based yacht interior designer renowned for bringing beautifully unique designs to life. They pride themselves in building a masterpiece with care and integrity to realize the owner’s dreams.

KISS yacht interior
KISS was built with children in mind and is perfect for undertaking long-term, long-distance cruising with them.
The Dubois team improved the children’s facilities, and the result was a contemporary interior design with a cozy family twist that will keep both grown-ups and children occupied. She also has additional cabin space for nannies and teachers.
The lower deck features a natural rippled sycamore in golden color as a backdrop. As you go up through the boat, you will see grey and silver tones on the main deck and warmer honey hues on the owners’ deck.
The main deck’s lounge has a sophisticated vibe with beautiful fabric selections that complements the yacht’s architectural features.
There are bespoke furniture items throughout the boat, such as the side tables with eel skin inlays and a crackle finish lacquering on top.
With its stunning marble work hand-chosen from Italy, the result is a beautiful and family-friendly place.
KISS is constructed with an aluminum superstructure, a beam of 9 m, and a draft of 2.3 m. She has a semi-displacement hull that allows her to maintain great seakeeping while reaching incredible speeds.
She is powered by a twin diesel Caterpillar (C32 Acert) 1,450hp engine running at 1800rpm, allowing her to cruise comfortably at 14 knots.
Her maximum speed is at 16 knots, and she has a range of up to 5,000 nautical miles from her 51,000-liter fuel tanks when traveling at 10 knots on her diesel fuel.
Her freshwater tanks have a capacity of around 16,000 liters, and she is equipped with two Caterpillar 6.6 – 2x 125 kW – 1500 rpm generators.
Lastly, she was built according to the Lloyds Register classification society’s specifications.
Her luxurious exterior design is the work of Dubois and features a standout metallic black. In collaboration with De Voogt’s engineers, Dubois and his team worked tirelessly to ensure that Kiss’s profile and exterior styling reflected this one-of-a-kind layout.
Although unusual for a yacht with a length of fewer than 50 meters to have a fully equipped master penthouse on the upper deck, this is exactly what this yacht has.
She features a raised pilothouse bridge on the main deck, providing the skipper with excellent views without overlooking guest areas. There is also an oversized sundeck with a raised hot tub and lots of room for sitting and sunbathing.
With its 46-meter length and luxurious accommodations, the KISS yacht can host 12 people in comfort and luxury.
She has six exquisite accommodations, including the owner’s cabin, a VIP suite, a double bedroom, and three twin cabins. Additionally, she can accommodate nine crew in five crew quarters.
Kiss Yacht is priced at $30 million, with an annual operating cost of $3 million.
