The quality assurance team interacted with many elements of the exterior and interior design in order to improve the initial expectation.

Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to eight people.
She boasts plentiful deck spaces, including a foredeck seating and sunbathing area. The superyacht sundeck is split between a spa pool and an area for sun loungers back aft, while the sheltered cockpit includes an aft-facing wrap of seating for great views out to sea. Power comes from a pair of 1,450hp Caterpillar C32 diesel engines for a top speed of 15 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots, Virtus
boasts an impressive range thanks to a total fuel capacity of 51,000 litres.
Her broker, David Legrand, comments: “Designed with a contemporary and sophisticated approach, her floor to ceiling windows offer a seamless sense of openness onto the outside world.”
The second of her line 48 meter will offer significant improvement in general arrangement, spacious layout, build time, and fuel efficiency.
Virtus 44 was asking initially 17,900,000 Euros.
