RHINO is a large volume yacht with generous spaces, accommodations and features commonly found on new builds. She has recently benefitted from new electronics, mechanical and electrical system upgrades. A fabulous understated new interior and exterior cushions have been updated. RHINO has enviable charter history and the best Sun Deck in the industry! 


Sleeps (10) owners and guests in (5) spacious double staterooms; (10) crew in (4) double crew cabins, Chief Engineer's cabin, plus the Captain's cabin.  

Each area of her stylishly appointed interior is finished in the finest woods, marbles and fabrics, creating a setting that is inviting, comfortable and elegant. 


RHINO has the best sun deck of any yacht this size and it is far superior to those found on yachts up to 185'. This “built for entertaining” sun deck you must see to believe! 

Interior access is via a circular staircase that is covered by a round hatch, which hydraulically opens and closes just aft of the Flybridge seating. This access from the sun deck to the interior of the ship is a feature found only on much larger yachts. The sun deck staircase accesses the entire ship, on all decks, all the way to the lower guest accommodations.

There are (2) U-shaped bars with a high gloss varnished teak top and (12) varnished Teak bar chairs. There is an icemaker, sink and refrigeration. Both bars are protected from the sun by either the arch over, or awnings that extend both forward and aft from the arch. 

A six-person Jacuzzi is centered on the sun deck, aft of the bars. Sun lounging pads surround the Jacuzzi. 

All the way aft on the centerline there is a BBQ grill and on either side of the grill are circular settees surrounding teak cocktail tables.  

For those seeking shade, electric awnings can be extended from either side of the arch over the bar. Five triangular sunshades can also be positioned over the Jacuzzi, sun pad and aft seating areas.  There is also a Sunbrite 54-inch HDTV on a mount that allows for swivel, with a waterproof floating remote control and an iPod dock. 

There is extensive locker storage on this immense sun deck, and access down to the bridge aft deck on the port side.  

Again, this is a remarkable area not found on any other yacht!


A passageway gives access to the foredeck. There is an escape hatch for the crew and an additional escape hatch from the owner's stateroom. 

Under the vertical bridge windows there is a seating area.

The bridge is well laid out with excellent visibility. A single helm chair faces forward. There is a U-shaped seating area with a table against the aft bulkhead for owners and guests.

The Captain's cabin is to starboard with a queen berth with Pullman upper. There is ample hanging locker space, a desk and ensuite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. 

The ship's office is to port, properly laid out with SAT COMS and other communication and office equipment. 

A day head is further aft, ahead and inboard of the audio/visual control racks that are correctly set up to roll out, giving walk-around access behind for service in an air-conditioned space. Audio/visual storage cabinets are against the aft bulkhead, dumb waiter access is adjacent and a door to the port side deck gives unobtrusive crew flow. 

The central staircase arrives from either the sun deck above or the main deck below in this foyer area. 

The Sky Lounge is further aft on the bridge deck level, giving excellent light, ventilation and lots of space. 

There is a wet bar against the forward starboard bulkhead, adjacent a four-place game table. A couch and love seat are opposite, surrounded by easy chairs and a coffee table. 

Further aft to starboard are additional couches, side tables, coffee tables and easy chairs, arranged to easily view the 80” theater screen with entertainment center, which includes a DVD/CD/Stereo and iPod docking station, controlled by iPad. 

Double stainless steel doors access the owner's upper dining deck, which is arranged with a teak dining table and Tri-Comfort dining chairs. Twelve chairs surround the table with more stored locally for additional seating. Storage cabinets forward serve as buffet servers. A C-shaped seating area is further aft. This entire deck is protected from the sun by the sun deck overhead and there is an electric awning to cover the aft seating, if needed. It is possible to enclose the sides of this deck with "see through" wind proof curtains, and it is air-conditioned to remove humidity. For relaxing, there are (4) wicker lounge chairs and ottomans.    


The main deck has generous sized walk-around teak decks. Port and starboard are stairwells forward leading to the bridge deck where there is centerline access to the foredeck. There are Bosun lockers forward serving the anchor windlass area.  

The aft deck is large and well laid out storing the 19’ AB tender with 150 hp Yamaha Outboard and (4) Four wave runners (New 2014).  Two wave runners and other toys are stored under the main deck in a hidden garage. The tender chocks remove and the storage boxes on the centerline convert to buffet servers for large gatherings. There is access up to the bridge deck dining area and further up to the sun deck, down to the swim platform on the starboard side, or to the hydraulic Passarelle to port. 

Entering the main deck through the port door you enter into the Lower Salon, paneled in Bubinga wood. Good storage areas are forward, with two sofas for viewing the Veranda entertainment center. There is an excellent view out to the main aft deck through double glass doors. This is an ideal room for children and games, with easy access to the water sports area. 

Walking forward through double Bubinga wood doors is the dining room, arranged with (2) circular tables, each with (6) chairs.  There is a custom wood insert that can be installed to make one large oval table seating 12 comfortably.  This room boasts extensive storage in beautiful matching wood paneled cabinets. Spectacular water views from this area. 

The main deck galley is to port, with excellent crew passageways adjacent, great pantry storage, equipped with excellent commercial equipment and has a warm residential feel. A fully equipped serving pantry is aft of the galley with access to the dining room. 

Walking forward from the Dining Salon to starboard, there is a day head inboard, just ahead of the double door foyer access to the side decks. The central guest staircase is off the foyer with access to the bridge and sun decks above and the guest staterooms below. 

Walking forward the entrance to the master stateroom is along a starboard side passageway. 

The master stateroom is full width, with a custom king size bed centrally located in the port side sleeping area, facing forward toward an entertainment center.  A semi-bulkhead with a sliding door separates the owners sitting lounge from the sleeping area. Easy chairs, a two-person settee, bookshelves, entertainment center and desk on the outboard side complete this relaxing room. 

The his and her master bath is full width forward in the master stateroom area, with two sinks, two WC's (hers with bidet), identical hanging lockers both sides, central shower and central Jacuzzi tub. 


Access to the Guest Accommodations is via the circular staircase from the main deck Foyer.  There are (4) versatile guest staterooms below. All are equipped with their own safes, entertainment centers and computer network access. 

Forward to starboard is a twin berth cabin with ensuite marble bath with shower.  The twin beds can convert to a King. 

Opposite to port is a queen berth cabin with ensuite marble bath with shower. 

The aft port guest stateroom is arranged with two twin berths that in stored mode enable this stateroom to become the sitting room or suite side of a full beam guest suite (when combined with the aft starboard queen stateroom). The port side "suite" has a marble bath with bathtub and shower.  The twin beds can convert into a King bed. 

The aft starboard side stateroom is permanently set as a queen berth, with partitions that open to make it a full beam suite using the port side stateroom. This stateroom also has a marble bathroom with tub and shower. 

All linens were replaced in 2014 and carpeting was replaced in 2016.  


The engine room is located aft of the guest accommodations.  It is accessed via a watertight bulkhead. This engine room has benefitted significantly from a knowledgeable captain and engineer. Everything is easy to see, access and service. 

An engineer's control room with Atlas shore converters (new 2015) is starboard aft. There is also a single Chief Engineer's cabin located aft of the control room. 

There is a refrigerator, freezer and dive compressor all hidden away behind sliding doors on the port side of the Lazarette, a massive work area on the centerline and a washer and dryer. 

Access to the water is through a hinged-up door to the swim platform.  


There are (2) identical crew cabins all the way forward, each with upper and lower berths, hanging lockers and ensuite bathrooms with showers. 

Further aft are (2) more crew cabins, fitted out identically. 

The crew mess is to starboard and a large laundry is to port. There is a crew access door to the forward guest stateroom allowing private crew access to the guest staterooms for discreet servicing. 

Crew can access the bridge deck directly via the main crew staircase, entirely separate and private.
