Qi (pronounced chee) reflects a fresh sense of energy among owners and their family & friends as they reconnect with nature in the most inspiring surroundings. Phenomenal views of the changing environment outside are synthesised with a safe and secure feeling within.
Her luxury areas are centred around the energy tower, which rises through all decks and connects people literally and metaphorically with the outside world. The glass exterior bathes the interior with light at this virtual centre point, offering a genuine sense of outdoor-in living. The fore and aft ship open areas provide a seamless transition from private to public, from interior intimacy to outdoor pleasures. Qi offers every conceivable facility for onboard comfort.
The 55-metre Qi proves that a desire for privacy need not be in conflict with open panoramas and an easy connection to the water.

The yacht’s luxury areas are quite literally centred around the energy tower. Rising up through all the decks, and topped by the Jacuzzi, this tower connects people literally and metaphorically with the outside world. The glass exterior bathes the interior with light at this virtual centre point of the yacht, offering fabulous views and a genuine sense of outdoor-in living.

In dynamic positioning or diesel electric mode only the generators will be running, providing clean and quiet operation up to 12 knots. In range mode only the medium-speed diesel will be operating. This engine consumes 10% less fuel compared to its high speed equivalent. Electrical power for hotel load and the thruster are provided via a shaft generator. This reduces both fuel consumption and running hours on the generators. Finally, in full speed mode both the main engine and the generators are deployed to offer maximum power and speed.
Qi was conceived to blend power and peace, to make owners and guests feel refreshed and energetic as they connect with nature and of course each other.
