Her owner, moving up to this new Man of Steel from a 120-foot Heesen 3700 of the same name, was obviously happy with the team's work, continuing with them for the new yacht, and bringing in Ausberg Design for the interior. In a joint statement following completion of the yacht, owner and designer reported, "For the good of the project, the lines between owner and designer were blurred, egos were non-existent, and eras and cultures were investigated. It was our goal from the beginning to have a great time together while creating this dream project. From the inception of this yacht, family fun was always at the forefront for this 'home away from home.'"
The team's success is evident in Man of Steel's familyfriendly arrangement and her playful décor. The lower guest accommodations are devoted to the young family's children, with each of the three staterooms having a layout and character specific to that child's interests. The fourth stateroom is fitted as a dedicated television and playroom, so the children have a self-contained world of their own to enjoy when more formal adult activities occupy the main and upper decks. It is here that "the man of steel" rescues overwhelmed parents and watches over the children, as they relax on wide Art Deco lounges in shades of mango, raspberry, and lime, or avail themselves of the two computer-game stations located along the centerline bulkhead.
With the children occupying the lower deck, guests are accommodated in style in a spacious VIP suite forward on the main deck. The full-beam stateroom has a queen berth, cabinetry, and private head to starboard, as well as an exercise room where the owner's office is normally located. To port is a seating area that overlooks the sea through three large windows. If the windows don't provide enough of a view, a large hullside panel can be folded out to create a balcony with unobstructed views to the horizon.
