Bow thrusters and stabilizers are part of the pilothouse package onboard Muse, which is intended to be as well-thought-out in terms of her technical areas and equipment as she is in terms of her interior design.

After all, what could be a more satisfying toy for a cosmopolitan adult than a stylish megayacht that’s as hard to come by as the newest Tickle Me Elmo or Sony PlayStation?
