Indoor/Outdoor Salon Dining
Thunder shows her most dramatic look from behind. Sweeping lines with sweeping dual staircases from the large swim deck bring you up to her indoor/outdoor dining salon. With glass doors for over 180 degrees of visibility, you keep the panorama view while staying in air-conditioned comfort. Open the sliding glass doors and the area is converted into an outdoor, Al Fresco dining space. The doors open partially or completely transforming the aft deck into the protected or open area as you desire.
The Visionaire table with seating for ten is an elegant space for Al Fresco dining, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors to allow weather protection while maintaining the beautiful views.
The Smart TV is connected to the entertainment systems on board.
Moving forward from the outdoor dining salon is the entry foyer leading to the main salon. A large hallway with glass doors provides privacy in the room. The main salon is a very intimate, private area with tall windows and high ceilings (over 11'). Thunder's main salon is a formal living room giving the owner a more elegant space to welcome and entertain guests. Luxuriously appointed with Visionaire furniture and furnishings that create a distinctive yet comfortable space for the most formal occasion.
The chandeliers and artwork on board are all included with the yacht.
Moving forward from the main salon, through electronic glass sliding doors, you enter the forward lobby with powder room to port, staircases leading to the lower accommodations, and wheelhouse stairway and forward guest suite to starboard.
Main Deck Guest Suite
All the way forward is a guest suite. This private, intimate space with wrap-around windows gives this cabin incredible views. EnSuite bath and shower located to port.
There are 5 staterooms on this level.
Thunder's Master Suite is full beam and located to the aft section of this deck. As you enter this incredibly large space, there is a comfortable lounge area, king-size bed, Furnishings are all exquisite Visionaire designs and are very fitting for the yacht. The lighting is remote-controlled. Extra-large double wardrobes covered in full-length mirrors add to the volume in the suite.
There are two master bathrooms; the main is outfitted with a full-size tub, shower, and water closet complete with bidet. The second is complete with a steam shower.

Forward Guest Staterooms
Thunder provides two near-identical guest cabins. These two staterooms mirror each other; one to port, the other to starboard forward in the guest area. Special attention was paid during the refit to use these spaces in a fashionable way. The double berths are outboard with a unique seating area forward leading into the en suite head.
The use of the woods conforming to the shape of the yacht gives these two rooms a warmth and openness. These spaces add to Thunder's uniqueness and give your guests an experience that is nautical, but nothing close to the cookie cutter staterooms seen often in yachts today.
Again, elegant Visionaire styling is used in the furnishings of these rooms.
Thunder has many exterior spaces to enjoy. From her lower aft swim deck, her special fore-deck seven meter pool with stunning spaces, to her flybridge. This yacht was designed for the yachtsman who places a priority on outdoor living, lounging, and enjoyment.
Thunder has a very inviting swim platform ready to receive guests at the water's edge. Low to the water, this is the point to enter from a tender or while swimming. The passerelle extends aft to welcome visitors and doubles as the crane to lift the aft tender.
Ascending sweeping stairs to the main deck, you are now at the indoor/outdoor dining salon. Wrap around wide gangways leading forward to the fore-deck. Here, you reach a stunning area with its amazing 7 meter pool. Sunpads and umbrellas surround the pool and it can be smartly shaded with retractable umbrellas. This area is one of the most popular exterior spaces aboard, giving you a private area for swimming or sunbathing in port or at anchor. The pool doubles as a tender garage while underway. The pool also has a separate area for a jacuzzi as well as an "endless pool" feature that allows you to do laps in place.
Thunder's dramatic profile continues with sweeping dual stainless steel stairways from the aft deck. As you reach the upper deck, you are greeted with a glorious vista from atop Thunder. There are side-by-side settees each with a dining table and large retractable umbrellas is available to cover the area.
Forward on the flybridge is the upper deck. Again, giving a lofty view around the yacht and harbor. This is the most thrilling spot to experience the yacht while underway. Sunning pads are located at the foremost part of this deck.
Thunder's galley is a very serviceable arrangement. Designed for the chef on board, there are ample storage and work spaces. Recently updated appliances and kitchen machines provide the necessary tools needed for gourmet meals and efficient service. Large pantries are well positioned for stocks.
Easy access for the crew maintains guest privacy while working around the yacht. Crew also have access through the exterior gangway. Crew quarter access is also at this service entry. Your crew remain as separate as desired.
