Owners may choose a three- or four-stateroom layout. Depending on the weight of the engine package the owner selects, the interior décor will be either traditionally constructed or built of high-tech honeycomb to reduce weight.
For triple-engine installations, the superstructure will be constructed of Kevlar and Aramat—and carbon-fiber reinforcements—to withstand performance at more than 55 knots.
