NAJIBA yacht interior

The NAJIBA yacht interior was penned by Guillaume Rolland from design house Studio Christian Liaigre. 

She has been describes as a “whitewashed villa on the beach” thanks to her light, fresh and airy interior. 

This custom-made superyacht features a high-end interior that plays with textures, while using a discrete warm color palette. 

Thanks to the smart use of glass, the natural light plays a key role to set a relaxing atmosphere throughout the yacht.

NAJIBA has been designed to accommodate up to 12 guests un six staterooms, including two Owner’s cabins (one for each owner). She can also carry 14 crew members on board. 

She has an extensive bow and alfresco areas on the main and upper decks.

The NAJIBA yacht is known for being one of the first eco-friendly super yachts. She is fuel-efficient, consuming 11 litres per nautical mile.

NAJIBA yacht exterior

The NAJIBA yacht features exterior design by Vitruvius Yachst Ltd and naval architecture by Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects and Philippe Briand Ltd. She is the first Vitruvius design built by the Dutch shipbuilders. 

As any other Feadship superyacht, she is characterised for her sleek and  minimalist exterior lines, different to any previous yachts built by the company. 

Her curvatures make the vessel even more lighter and efficient, helping reduce the hull displacement. NABIJA has a hull of 699.
