The interior compartmentalisation of the "Alalunga 85 Sport" is traditional, featuring four cabins (for the owner, VIPs, and two guests), a large saloon and five bathrooms.
All of the cabins are equipped with private bathrooms and box showers, while the owner's cabin has both a Jacuzzi tub and a separate box shower. The interior is done in cherry wood and other fine woods and the shipyard has chosen elegant fabrics and leather in co-ordinated colours for the upholstery. The interplay of levels created by the designers, as well as the large volumes created by the shape of the hull and superstructure, give this yacht excellent liveability.
Inside the area protected by the hardtop, accessible through a crystal glass door, we find the dining/relaxation area, decorated with the same elegant materials as those used in the interior. This line of open cruisers is very attractive and boasts innovative, stylistic solutions usually only found on different boat types, such as the well-protected, wide, lateral walkways and the rounded shape of the superstructures that extend from prow to stern. A spacious sundeck has been designed forward, with ample room for eight people. The area, perfectly integrated with the superstructure, does not interfere in any way with the boat's profile. There is another sundeck astern, while the cockpit is the ideal place for dining in the open air and enjoying sailing in maximum comfort. The geometry of the bottom ensures that the boat is always soft on the waves and capable of excellent performance, so that the owner and guests benefit from an appropriate combination of comfort and boating safety. The numerous technological accessories installed for navigation and communication, along with those for relaxation, such as the hideaway plasma TV, make this yacht modern and well-suited to the requirements of today's guests.
