Ipanema is a collaboration with Italian designer Hot Lab, who is responsible for the layout, interior and exterior of the 50m yacht. There are three decks on board, including a spacious sundeck.

The interior includes full length windows to let in light and create uninterrupted views. Over a dozen different types of marbles decorate the cabins, adding to the combination of the Italian, English and French styles throughout the ship.
