Interiors: comfort, space and light
The saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley to port which gives directly to the cockpit to form a large ‘L’, together with the chart table in the middle, facing out to sea.
LOTUS accommodates up to 8 guests (although with two crew, 6 is prefered) in 4 en suite cabins with queen beds. The baths are roomy and have separate stall showers.
For family charters the crew will take one of the double cabins and make the crew cabin with upper/lower singles available for children.The cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, together with excellent ventilation thanks to the deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit. LOTUS is fully air-conditioned.
Exterior: elegance, comfort and safety
Access is via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking. The side decks are broad with recessed deck hatches.
The aft deck is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge with a dining table and sun-lounging area to starboard. The fly bridge is reached by two stairways: one leading from the cockpit, another leading from the deck on the starboard side.
For family charters the small, en suite upper/lower singles cabin is available for children.
