The superyacht has benefitted from performance-enhancing upgrades, including a 3m hull extension and the addition of a commercial helideck, which not only improves operational efficiency but also enhances the vessel’s profile. She is also equipped with professional fire-fighting equipment and additional fuel provisions to enable long-range helicopter operations, as well as huge water tanks and a large crane for launching tenders and offloading aid supplies.
