Kingship, Hong-Kong based yacht builders collaborated with Donald Starkey and Azure Naval Architects in the design development of this new 155.8-ft yacht to be built within the 500 ton rules, making crewing of the yacht in that and other regions more manageable.

The yacht is capable of sleeping 12 in 6 suites, has lounges and open covered deck spaces for entertaining, all accessible from a central staircase up to and including the part shaded sun deck with a bar/dining facility being served by a food lift and open Jacuzzi on the forward sunning area.

The styling is a break from the more recent yachts Kingship has created as it features a plumb bow and generous circular port lights on the forward main deck, the intention to evoke the feeling of a modern “gentleman’s yacht.”
