QING showcases expansive interior and exterior living spaces while remaining under 500 GT. The light-filled interior is enriched by oversized windows to provide impressive views from all areas. Designer Sylvia Bolton created a stunning modern and contemporary interior, adorned with horizontal Macassar ebony paneling and rich walnut floors. The flooring throughout Qing is “floating”, to minimize any transient sound or vibrations from machinery. This soundproofing and vibration control was custom designed specifically for this model by Van Cappellen.
