Both yachts will be at a deep seawater location in Holland for several months during the winter “refit season”.

With newly painted French Navy hull and white boot stripes, her racy lines cuts a sleek form on the water. Her interiors are just as special - the dramatic use of white reflective surfaces accented with blues and blacks gives her a real sense of identity. Large photographs of stars of the screen, music and fashion add to the relaxed, fun feel.Mischief accommodates 12 guests in 6 cabins including a luxurious full-beam master suite, 3 VIP double guest cabins and 2 twin guest cabins. Timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating feature throughout her living areas to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. Her crew quarters are for 14 people. The spaces are fashion-forward rather than formal, inviting relaxation and enjoyment. The main salon features a large marble bar, with back-lit mirrored wine and glass racks - a theme found in two further wine stores within the cabins.

One of the VIP cabins also enjoys this vantage point. The full master suite lies forward on the main deck, with two further large doubles and smaller twins on the lower deck. These twin rooms would be great for children - and with beam all the entertainment on offer they’ll barely spend any time in their cabins - or get up to Mischief!
