The interiors of the MD75 have a distinct non-minimalist style, warm and pleasant, and are made in open pore oak with a unusual “scratched” finish. The walls and ceilings are combined with slightly curved panels covered in a special fabric resembling linen.

A large staircase, 1 meter wide, connects the central cockpit to the living area. The interior layout includes a living area with a dining table accommodating 6 to 8 guests on the left, with a comfortable sofa to starboard. To starboard is also the nav station. In front of the living area, there is a double guest cabin with two separate beds that can be joined to make a double bed, with a further pullman bunk making for three available beds.

The large master suite at the front, is equipped with a double bed and fitted with wardrobes and storage cabinets. The private bathroom has a double sink and a separate shower.

A key aspect of this project design is the flush deck that makes all the exterior design very minimal and clean allowing the guests to have maximum freedom of movement on board, and the interior design that continues the exterior design concept. Every space is bright and clean with rich characterising details. The lighting design has been also key: the lights are positioned under veils that create a “washwall” effect that illuminates the walls and lowers the “light point”.

The interior features large windows that open on the sea and allow the view, but these are designed for being integrated into the exterior design. In fact, they are quite invisible from outside and the water reflection on the light-coloured hull is continuous and allow to the yacht to have a low landscape impact.
