Fidelis' interiors were designed in-house by Perini Navi's architects and have a contemporary, refined style with simple, clean lines combined with the use of materials such as stained walnut, wenge, parchment, maple, teak, steel, marble and leather.
The main saloon, designed as a light-filled open space, is divided into two areas by an unusual central element that houses both the steel and wenge staircase that leads to the lower deck and two elegant sliding glass doors that separate the living and dining areas.
Fidelis' lower deck has a large, full-beam master stateroom with a Queen bed at the center, an office starboard and a sitting area to port. The four guest cabins all have queen-sized beds and two of these also have retractable pullman berths and wide couches that can become beds."
