Throughout the yacht, lighting has been emphasized and, with the help of Apollo Lighting of Ft. Lauderdale, more than 240 LED lights illuminate the exterior decks of the 108. In fact, there are enough lights to warrant a separate eye-level electrical panel dedicated solely to the various lighting circuits. Combined with nine underwater lights, plus hidden rope lighting throughout the yacht, she is truly a spectacle at night.
Separated by a counter and burled columns, the formal dining area seats eight and is backed by a bulkhead with artwork nestled between a pair of lighted china cabinets.
Filling the forward end of the house is the country galley, with two tables under the windshield so that occupants of the curved settee arent trapped. Granite was used for the wide counters and even on the galley sole, and overhead cabinets were added for extra storage. The galley features redundancies, such as the Sub-Zero double-door freezer/fridge backed up by undercounter Sub-Zero drawers on the forward side of the counter. Tucked under the stairs to the skylounge is a day-head, which was moved from its original position on the aft deck. A marble foyer greets guests on the lower deck, with the master suite spanning the full beam amidships, backed by a his-and-hers head separated by a marble shower, with a spa bathtub on her side. Bureaus are built in outboard of the king-sized berth, and Shoji screens cover the large oval ports. Twin cedar-lined hanging lockers include a walk-in to port, and a full-sized washer and dryer are just outside in the foyer.
Forward, the VIP stateroom is unusual for its king-sized berth and has an en suite head with marble shower. The guest cabin has a double berth and private head, while the fourth cabin has twin berths for kids, with canvas sea rails on removable posts for security even underway. One feature that helped free up space for the cabins is the use of pocket doors throughout the guest accommodations.
The pilothouse is really a skylounge, with a settee tucked aft. With a hi-lo table, this settee can become a pilot berth for extra crew on night watches. During the day, it serves guests facing a pop-up 42-inch TV and a bar with fridge and icemaker. Opposite is a large day-head, and behind the helm companion seat is a desk for the captain or owner.
The helm electronics are sophisticated, with an array of monitors including radar and AIS and thoughtful touches such as a joystick for steering on the arm of the Stidd helm chair. Rather than solid windows, this 108 has opening ports on each side of the instrument panel, allowing the skipper to lean out for visibility when docking with the wired remote helm unit. I also liked the large drawer for paper charts immediately next to the helm for easy access.
