The luxury yacht has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. She is powered by 2 MTU engines. Which bring her a top speed of 18 knots. Her cruising speed is 12 knots. We estimate her range at least 6,500nm.

The Feadship Aquarius has an interior design by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. She can accommodate 14 guests in 7 staterooms. We estimate her number of crew at around 30.
