MAIN DECK & SYSTEMS
The main deck is the center of social life aboard Taipan III. In addition to the other spacious salons, this deck encompasses the casual and inviting Aft deck lounge and the dining salon.

Cozy seating groups surround the spectacular Octagonal bar. In pleasant weather the windows are removed, creating the atmosphere of a tropical verandah. The spiral staircase leads to a unique Sky lounge.

A pair of antique, hand carved, gold-leafed statues of Buddha cast watchful eyes over the dining salon. This elegant room accommodates 14 guests for silver service dining, and many more for elegant buffets.

The dining salon can also be used for business meetings. To facilitate presentations, a full array of audio visual equipment is hidden behind the beautiful teak and marble burl consoles and cabinets.

RECREATION
The most fanciful and lighthearted space aboard Taipan is the futuristic, galactic Skylounge. Shooting stars glitter across the twinkling fiber optic ceiling while galaxies glide underfoot. A disappearing television and a hidden chair massage add to the room’s mystique. The state-of-the-art pilothouse is the yacht’s command center. Curved seating provides comfort for guests to observe the yacht’s operation.

No major yacht is complete without a gymnasium and an office. Located just Aft of the Bridge, the Gym has a treadmill, two stationary bikes, a multi-function weight machine and free weights. Besides a panoramic Vista, this room is equipped with a TV/VCR for viewing exercise tapes as well as a stereo for entertainment. A separate hydrotherapy room gives it all the features of a fitness club.

For captains of industry who must keep abreast of the world’s economic developments even when away from the office, Taipan features a private command station. Satellite links provide instantaneous voice, fax and data communication to any place on the globe.
