SUN DECK AND TOYS
The sun deck is a truly multifunctional outdoor living area.
Forward, behind an encircling bulwark raised by a glass windbreak, is a pleasant sitting area, while amidships, beneath the shade of the mast, is a dining area.
The aftermost portion of the deck offers umbrella-shaded sunloungers. A large screen can drop from the mast for open-air movies.
A unique feature of Lady Lola is her "golf green"!
With the yacht at anchor and some aft rails removed a small portion of the teak-laid deck is mechanically replaced by a square of artificial grass containing an automatic golf tee that presents ball after ball to the player.
POOL AND LIGHT SHOW
Just aft of the arch mast is a spectacular heated pool, surrounded by seats, from which water cascades into two smaller pools. After dusk, the carefully positioned lighting, both on deck and underwater, creates a spectacular sight. The water around the yacht is illuminated by a series of two million candle power lights set into the hull beneath the waterline. These can reach out to illuminate a cove, attract a shoal of fish or, when underway, merely light up the white-crested waves as they sweep by.
LOBBY AND DINING ROOM
The spacious starboard-side lobby contains an amazing glass "waterfall" that tumbles down the central column of the stairs to join an equally detailed glass stream that flows across the marble-floored lobby towards the massive side-deck doors. Almost totally frameless, these flood the hall with light. Forward, past the entrance to the servery and a side table topped in red onyx, is the dining room. Running fore and aft, it is flanked on its outboard side by huge windows and inboard with equally large mirrors so that every guest seated at the long 12-seater table can take in the view.
MAIN DECK LOUNGE
In the main deck lounge, a group of large settees surround twin coffee tables which, at the press of a button, rise to dining height as they close together and form a single table. Just forward, within the air conditioned comfort of the circular observation lounge, a settee faces a bureau from which a television pops up, to convert this area into a guests' television lounge.
The formal saloon is just forward, through a passage containing a bar cabinet and a Steinway grand piano. Beyond, the saloon offers a large conversation area to port, in which settees and easy chairs are gathered around a low table, while to starboard is a games table.
UPPER DECK LOUNGE
Huge windows flood the upper deck lounge with light and, at the same time, provide amazing paronamic views. The room offers a sitting area, games table and a marble-topped bar, while its aft portion, fittede with a huge 137cm (54in) projection television and a further settee, can either serve as a media room or, in view of its floor-to ceiling glazed doors, as an observation lounge.
Beyond these doors, the open aft deck is furnished with an intimate two-seater dining table that can be instantly enlarged by the addition of an outer ring. Forward of the saloon, a study and a fully stocked private galley for use by guests, lie on opposite sides of the passage that leads forward to the master suite.
The master stateroom enjoys the most incredible 270° panorama over the yacht's bows. To port, a few stairs descend from the bedroom to the lady's dressing room, which offers luxuriously fitted wardrobes and drawers. Beyond this is a delightfully marbled bathroom with separate shower and toilet compartments.
Positioned by the large window, the bath offers unrivalled views, while privacy can be ensured with a LCD panel that can be turned opaque at the press of a button.
To starboard is a gentleman's shower room, this time offering a washbasin trimmed with the stunning Brazilian blue marble that also lines the huge shower compartment. These facilities are completed with a towel warming drawer, head compartment and, beyond a display of meteorological instruments, a custom tailored dressing room with spacious wardrobes and glass-fronted shirt drawers.
An elegant stairway descends from the lobby to four superb en suite guest cabins-three doubles and a convertible twin/double.
Each cabin is, in effect, a VIP suite, offering a seating area, walk-in closet and a luxuriously marbled bathroom; thus providing guests with an extraordinary level of comfort and privacy.
