Her exterior is designed by René van der Velden, who gave the yacht bold lines and curved windows, with a modern gray and white color palette. The interior, designed by Adam Lay Studio, incorporates rooms filled with natural light and a wide VIP stateroom forward of the main deck that includes a panoramic view as well.

The architecture, engineering, and construction was done by Diana Yacht Design. Bijoux can reach a speed of up to 13 knots and can travel 3,300 nautical miles. Bijoux will now begin extensive sea trials before her final delivery at the end of June.
