Even if Ventura has two sister ships, her layout is completely different from her sister's. In this case, the Owners chose to have two suites: one with panoramic 280 degree views located for a romantic feel on the bridge deck aft and a "passage cabin" located on the main deck for practicality. Up to twelve guests can be accommodated in six cabins. Also, the super yacht features two master suites, a full-beam VIP cabin on the lower deck plus one twin and two double cabins.
The owner's design choices for the mega yacht MY Ventura also included a light metallic grey for the superstructure and a custom dark metallic grey for the hull, an innovative color scheme which gives the vessel a characteristic and elegant look.
The sophisticated minimalistic interior décor was created by Francesco Paszkowski, an acclaimed Italian designer. The ebony parquet floor, richly patterned and impeccably polished, contrasts with whitened oak paneling, which further enhances this chic environment. Paszkowski remarks: "I'm extremely proud to work with such an important and efficient shipyard I was honored to work with a longtime ago. I'm also very happy to hand over the Italian design and the experience of our team abroad, for the excellent relationship established with the shipyard and the ideas we could share. Though we've kept in touch since 1996, when we designed the first project for Heesen, the interior design of this 50m yacht looks very much like a dream I could achieve: feeling part of the Dutch group".
A point worth noting regarding the features of mega yacht MY Ventura is the special attention given to integrating the controlled ambient lighting. Every single area of the vessel can be adapted to the guests' mood or the required atmosphere. The Owner's artworks and sculptures have special niches and focal points throughout the mega yacht.
Enjoying life outdoors aboard the MY Ventura is possible thanks to the generous exterior areas of the superyacht. There is a 70 square meter sundeck that was designed as a massive open-plan space with loose furniture that can be removed in case more space is needed when hosting big parties. Another three outdoor areas, including a bridge deck aft and dining options on the main deck, complete Ventura's impressive options for the Owners and the guests to enjoy open air.
