As you can see from the virtual tour, the yacht's interiors are seriously stunning.
They have been created by world-renowned designer Donald Starkey, and the Art Deco theme is reflected across all areas of the superyacht.
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 piece de resistance is a bespoke, glass-encased humidor which displays a range of vintage cigars.
On the bridge deck above, the yacht's classic club lounge is a beautiful and unusual touch not often seen on yachts. The salon has a timeless theme, with leather seating, a warm coffee color palette and noir photographs depicting historical icons smoking.
The piece de resistance is a bespoke, glass-encased humidor to port. It showcases a huge variety of vintage cigars, and is flanked either side by decadent whiskey cabinets with snakeskin embossing and crystal glasses.
The space is more intimate than the main salon below, and benefits from an entertainment system and small study space.
The motor yacht offers accommodation for up to 12 guests in five cabins.
A master cabin on the owner’s deck offers incredible views, a king-size double bed and a walk-in closet. A small vanity and bijou lounging area ensures the principal charter guests are totally catered to.
Adjoining the master cabin is a decadent en-suite finished in gold-veined black marble with a sit-down shower and his and hers sinks. Not including the en suite and walk-in closet, the master suite spans 40 square metres.

Close to the Owner's cabin, the nanny’s cabin is also conveniently located on this deck. It features twin beds and ensuite bathroom.
The remaining cabins are situated on the lower deck and include a 30sqm full-beam VIP Cabin with king-size double bed, a spacious walk-in closet and a generous bathroom en suite including a separate shower and a separate head.
There is a Queen- size cabin to Starboard and Twin cabin to Port; both benefit from ensuite facilities.
The yacht has one of the largest volumes of open deck space for a yacht of her size class, and one of the favorite spot while on charter is the sundeck.
Here, a large pool offers the perfect spot for lying back and soaking up the sights. It has an innovative 'spillpool' feature, with a waterfall that feeds fresh water into the tub.
As ever, we can expect to see the yachties from Below Deck Med enjoying the jacuzzi to the fullest after big crew nights out!
As well as the pool, the sundeck also boasts a large alfresco dining arrangement, a variety of sunloungers and a barbecue.
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.
Guests on Below Deck Mediterranean will find no shortage of places to enjoy the sunshine on board the Wellington. As well as her sundeck, she also has a large lounge area on her upper deck aft, which is adjoined by a sunpad spread.
There is an alfresco dining set-up on her main deck aft, where guests can enjoy their meals while still feeling connected to the sea and their surroundings.
The finishing touch is the beach club, which is a welcome retreat where guests can sit back and relax in the shade or bask in the sun on the swim platform.
The yacht has an excellent selection of water toys and accessories, which includes Seabobs and Jet-skis. All of these can easily be accessed via the swim platform, and will ensure hours of fun splashing in the water.
