The 154-foot (46.94m) superyacht RHINO is a tranquil on-water retreat that offers the finest that luxury has to offer. This superyacht boasts exceptional volume for her size, maximizing space for owners and guest use with an overabundance of spaces to gather socially and relax privately. In reviewing the recent upgrades & investments alongside her incomparable volume and deck spaces, one can’t help but conclude that RHINO is an incredible value.
RHINO’s interior has a light, airy feel with an elegant, beach house styling. Her interior is adorned with the finest woods, marbles, and fabrics, which creates a soothing ambiance that is sure to take your stresses away. The superyacht’s interior main salon is perfect for hanging with the family or entertaining friends. Featuring an 80-inch theater screen and ample plush seating, the sky lounge provides a perfect place to relax, socialize and watch the big game or a movie.
The yacht’s exterior spaces showcase a casual luxury that creates a relaxing ambiance for lazing back and taking in the views of the cruising destination. RHINO’s breathtaking sundeck is a showpiece that exceeds any other in her size range, even offering direct access to the interior, which is a feature normally found on larger yachts. The superyacht’s expansive sundeck offers the perfect place to spend days with family and friends lounging in the sun or shade on the vast sun pads, soaking in the Jacuzzi, enjoying drinks at the bar or a barbecue prepared by the chef.
Alfresco dining for twelve is found on the bridge deck aft. Perfect for lounging, the space also features a C-shaped seating area and four wicker chairs and ottomans. When the weather is less than perfect, this space can still be enjoyed by using see-through, windproof curtains.
RHINO provides 10 guests paramount comfort in five sumptuously appointed staterooms. Located on the main deck, the full-beam master stateroom offers the utmost privacy.

RHINO’s master stateroom is complete with an incredible en-suite bath with a shower and Jacuzzi tub. The additional guest staterooms offer guest versatility and plenty of space with two double-bed staterooms and two convertible twin beds.
Loaded with tenders and toys (including 4 jet skis and a huge slide) and enough space to easily and conveniently store them all, RHINO was built for fun. She has a massive boat deck and garage that allow the guests to access any number and combination of toys that they can imagine.
