Originally called Mazu, the 15-foot superyacht had its name changed to Quing. The elegant global traveler was built by Cheoy Lee and fitted with an economic single-engine propulsion system (a 1,911-hp Caterpillar engine), inspired by the success of its predecessor, the Marco Polo yacht. The vessel can take its passengers on perfectly comfortable expeditions for up to 6,600 nautical miles at 12 knots, using up approximately 41 gallons per hour.
If technical data are not your thing, you can read on to discover its superb interiors and excellent amenities. Starting with the open salon and dining area, the ambiance is undeniably sophisticated, KCA International Interior Architects having made excellent use of walnut (for the floors) and Macassar ebony (for the walls). The darkness of the wood is beautifully balanced out by the light beige and off-white sofas, armchairs and chairs.
The same play of contrasts can also be seen in the massive upper deck master penthouse. With an elegant en-suite bathroom and generous private lounge area, the master offers all the comfort of a plush home, albeit at a smaller scale.
For the other guests, there is a larger VIP room, a double stateroom, and a twin cabin on the lower deck. Together they can accommodate up to 9 people in excellent conditions. The onboard gym can also be easily converted into an extra cabin, should the owner opt for a different configuration. A crew of 12 can also be invited on the luxury vessel.
We are particularly impressed by the jaw-dropping kitchen with marble floor and countertops, and stainless steel everything. Top-of-the-line appliances ensure chef-style cooking opportunities, meaning that no dining compromise will ever have to be made while on long sailing expeditions. Actually no compromise needs to be made in any other department either, because Quing was made to provide the best possible experiences to affluent lifestyle seekers.
