Interior Notes


Karen Lynn of Karen Lynn Interior Design LLC, Ft. Lauderdale was hired to provide a pleasing and attractive décor appealing to the American market.

The interior design brief included high gloss Padauk (from the mahogany family) in several grain patterns, Cambria stonework, mosaic glass tile, Kravet fabrics and Bernhardt furniture.

The results are stunning with all who have seen her very complimentary of the detail, design and execution.



It would be hard to find a nicer more well equipped 80’ motor yacht anywhere near the asking price of the DEESCOVERY.

She boasts four ensuite cabins plus crew.  Hydraulic “At Rest” stabilizers and bow and stern thruster plus a Heavy Duty swim platform for tender storage.  1550 HP MANs power her to a 25 knot top speed.
