On boarding Burrasca via the impressive Passerelle, the sweep of teak decking is broken by the typical Perini stern cockpit built on a lower level than the main deck, and it is completely covered by the flybridge above. Plenty of room is offered for lounging on its comfortable chairs and sofas. The area is very suitable for stylish dining, or evening cocktail parties.
The broad side decks are protected by high bulwarks that leading onto the foredeck, while sturdy stairs lead up to the flybridge with its bimini covered steering and sail control position, sofas and tables, and several different sunbathing areas, plus a spa pool. Back on the main deck, doors on both sides open from the cockpit into the main saloon, flooded with light from expansive windows on each side. The aft section is cozy and sociable, and with free standing furniture, allowing one to withdraw to a quiet corner if desired. Forward, the saloon is adjoined by a private office to port and a generously proportioned formal dining room to starboard. The rooms are paneled in cherry and teak, with the grain of the wood varying from one area to the next. They exude an air of solidity and calmness due to the immaculate finish. Also to be found on the main deck are a day head, a bar with service galley and the expansive bridge with navigation area to port.
A spiral staircase between the saloon and dining room leads down to the owner and guests' living quarters which occupy the whole amidships section of the lower deck. From the hall, the owner's suite is aft, extending across the full beam of the yacht, with a king size bed, sitting room/TV corner and walk-in wardrobe, plus a vast bathroom with a bathtub and a separate shower stall. An impressive and extensive fitness center, with adjacent sauna is to port equipped with the highest quality exercise machines. It is accessible either from the hall or from the owner's bathroom. Forward are two guest staterooms with queen size beds, and two staterooms with twin single beds and additional Pullman berths, each with their own bathrooms and fitted out in the same style as the owner's quarters.
The well-proportioned crew quarters, separated from the owner and guest areas by a watertight bulkhead, are accessed either from the bridge or from the foredeck. The crew mess and professionally equipped main galley are positioned on opposite sides, while forward is the captain's double ensuite cabin opposite an ensuite cabin with a double and single berth. Two more cabins with twin single berths are forward and share a shower room.
The aft third of the lower deck is reserved for technical areas and is separated from the forward sections by a watertight and sound proof bulkhead. The large and well laid out machinery room contains the two Deutz main engines and three generators, one of which is purely to provide power to the yacht's sail handling systems. There is ample room for the other equipment; water makers, air conditioning plant, sanitary systems, etc., for all service routines.
