She features zero-speed gyroscopic stabilizers for guest comfort at anchor, and has twin MAN 12V 1400 diesel engines providing a cruising speed of 24 knots and a top speed of 34 knots.

The 4400 Fast Fly is a fully customized 147-foot yacht that was delivered to her owners in time for the summer season. Sister ship to M/Y La Pellegrina and M/Y Belongers, the 4400 Fast Fly has a composite hull and flybridge, is equipped with zero-speed gyroscopic stabilizers, and has a cruising speed of 17 knots and a top speed of 24 knots. All interior and exterior design, as well as naval architecture, was carried out in-house at the shipyard in France.
