Minimal structural changes are made to Black Heron, to avoid excessive cost, but her cosmetic updates and design concepts provide a more modern styling, with an aggressive overall look.
Her superstructure and mullions are darkened to create the illusion of large, continuous windows without altering the original portholes.
The stern and bow have increased in volume, allowing for a new spa and sports area close to the beach club, while the foredeck now has space for a large guest relaxation area with tender stowage beneath.
For the interior, Borla used sliding doors to convert private areas into big, open spaces. Sustainable materials are introduced, such as recycled glass and textiles, as well as wood for ceilings and floors.
