The sundeck's design should allow both large and small groups to gather in comfort. The owners intend to cruise with both children and grandchildren; adults will be able to enjoy cocktails far forward while the kids can lounge around the Jacuzzi aft.
Notice the distinct seating areas inside the skylounge, which includes a bar area, seating area, and separate card table, as well as the split dining layout on the bridge deck itself, where most other yachts usually have just a single, long table.
As both of the owners are in their 70s, it was important to have the master on the main deck (no stairs to navigate). The husband is also an avid piano player, so he wanted room in the main saloon for his piano, without sacrificng space for guests to gather.
With a dearth of yachts offering similarly laid out guest staterooms, the owner wanted queen or twin berths that could convert to queens in all of the guest cabins, so he'll be able to ask for a higher rate should Time for Us enter the charter market.
