    AIR DESCRIPTION Air is aimed at a ‘green-fingered’ owner and makes use of biophilic elements throughout her five decks. The master suite, positioned forward on the main deck, comes complete with its own interior garden sequestered in the bow, as well as two vegetable patches. Air takes her design cues from both nature and the electric vehicle market, and she is characterised by ‘clean and minimal shapes’. She was designed to inspire. Air should offer an oasis of physical and mental well-being while encouraging environmental awareness. The nature theme continues on the main deck aft, where a two-tier waterfall swimming pool sits, inspired by the Travertines of Pamukkale in Turkey. A glass bottom reflects light down into a beach club bar below, where a 7.5 metre tender can be stored, while the waterfall feature fills a second pool on the swim platform. Other highlights include a library on the bridge deck and a large curved wine rack integrated into the dining saloon. Air's 'green' design also extends to her energy supply. Solar panels are integrated into three levels of the superstructure while windows utilise heat mirror technology to reduce energy consumption on board. Smart technology on board will include a digital ceiling where sensors are able to anticipate lighting needs as guests move about the boat.
