Carmac VII was the last of three Feadships built for the same owner and has an LOA of 45.7 m, a beam of 8.62 m and a draft of 2.72 m. The elegant interior of Carmac VII was achieved with the help of some unique furnishings, including 200-year old hand-carved walnut and cherry-wood panelling, 150-year old lead glass china cabinets and hand-made woven carpeting. The interior decor was very carefully removed from Carmac VI, which had been built a decade earlier, and re-fitted onboard Carmac VII.
Carmac VII can accommodate up to 14 guests with the addition of 12 crew members.
