Active owners who enjoy the yachting experience to the fullest, the Kittredges spent as many as 25 weeks per year on their previous yacht, a 142-footer built on spec by another yard. This gave them lots of time to document what they liked, what they didn't like, and what they wanted on the next boat. The list focused on their three main interests: wining and dining, music, and exercise. The details, and there were many, filled in around these areas. For instance, Paraffin's dining room has a 400-bottle "wine cellar and stowage for 450 wineglasses.
