The new yacht was lit by coloured spotlights and her christening was accompanied by an orchestra and a choir, who sang from the foredeck. Sea Rhapsody features exterior design by Tim Heywood and an interior by Andrew Winch, who said: “Sea Rhapsody’s architectural design has been subtly developed, incorporating new material choices to create an individual signature specific to the client.”

The superyacht’s large-volume interior has the unusual touch of two full-beam master suites, and was designed to be relaxing and harmonious; many elements were inspired by the client’s love for Asia.

Sea Rhapsody’s owners will use her for family cruising in the Med.
