The yacht's main salon can be found on the upper deck. An elegant nameplate greets guests when they step inside via the aft deck, and black and white photos on the wall add some character to the living space.

A color palette of light gray and cream creates a soothing ambiance, while wide windows let in plenty of light and air during the day. On the forward wall, a large TV screen with a range of on-demand movies allows the space to function as a movie theater.

Forward of the main salon is the formal dining salon, which seats up to 10 guests. 

The Club Lounge

guests who enjoy the finer luxuries in life will make great use of superyacht the wellesley club lounge where they can drink scotch as they cruise mallorca

The piece de resistance is a bespoke, glass-encased humidor which displays a range of vintage cigars.

The Wellington is one of the few Below Deck yachts to feature an alfresco barbecue grill on deck. We're keeping our fingers crossed that new chef Kiko Lorran will be putting it to the test and whipping some gourmet delights on the barbecue.
