Musashi’s 87.88m/287.99ft displacement hull cradles a posh interior with the luxury of large spaces and lush fabrics. She accommodates 18 guests served by 23 crew. Her simplicity is inspired by Japanese Shibusa, the Japanese aesthetic of subtlety and unobtrusive beauty. Clean and essential, the reinforced glass superstructure is unique among seafaring sisters.
An internal floating staircase reaches top to bottom. With reinforced glass treds trimmed in stainless steel, the stair is both fresh and functional while providing a stunning, LED lit ascent. Silk carpets, accompanied by elegant chenille and cashmere fabrics, please the tactile senses, while clean lines, ample space to breathe, and mesmerizing horizons feed the soul. Throughout, there is a satisfying echo of luxurious utility.
Shibusa modesty is built into the open spaces that at once imbue a sense of space and privacy. Two master suites and two VIP suites echo the emphasis on private reflection. The suites are elegant and stylish without excess. Essentials are beautifully simple, and luxury is evident in the harmonic blend of all senses, merging stone with plush, clear with opaque, light with dark, and modern with ancient, converging to deliver an unparalleled yachting experience.
The silence of Shibusa evoked by carefully selected art inspires quiet reflection, enhancing the voyage and nurturing the spirit. From Musashi’s signature calligraphic brush circle and Japanese characters, to custom bath hardware and stunning sculptural pieces, her creative spark launches a controlled fire of imagination, releasing thoughts from barriers and fear.
Lastly, Musashi embraces Shibusa naturalness, allowing transformation of glass enclosures from protective to al fresco. Main deck dining, aft lounge cinema, and upper deck saloon invite the outdoors in. As the lower deck beach club releases its magnificent tenders, the aft space welcomes physical exertion with a broad deck and basketball court, and of course, a broad range of water sports. The upper deck pampers and pleases with the weightlessness of the pool spa, the warmth of the sun lounges, and gifts for the palate from the bar.
In an harmonious fusion of form with function, the everydayness of Musashi is misleading, as the chic, serene design reveals modern controls that are both visually imperceptible yet obvious upon need. Simple in form, complex in utility, beautiful in all regards, Musashi ensures a voyage for both body and soul in a most balanced, understated environment.
