It entails a 4 sail layout with the similar measurements of the Surreya V yacht composition to allow for seamless installation, constructed of the highest quality electropolished stainless steel and craftsmanship. The installation is made up of a steel line network, bound and intertwined with stainless steel spheres in 20, 25, 30 and 40 cm diameter. This stainless-steel netting will match the aluminum mast base structure beautifully. The spheres are polished into mirror finish to reflect light rays in an eye – catching and mesmerizing way, reflecting the surrounding facades – colours of the sky and water during the day, and featuring a programmable light setup during the night to fit any mood and style.

The lighting system will facilitate spectacular light shows to befit any event or occasion. The netting itself is an alluring element in this construction, creating a patterned arrangement from up close and at a distance, with its open network of lines in the shape and outline of sails.
