Hello. 
 
I am new to this forum.
 
I am writing to request help doing research for a story that occurs on a large sailing superyacht.
 
I am hoping that someone might be willing to look at the EOS sailing yacht, and the new Koru sailing yacht by Bezos, and give me some sense of what the interior might look like, based on their personal experience inside yachts, and especially superyachts. What would be on uppermost level of rooms/interior? The second level below? The third? Where would main stateroom be, upper floor with better view, or below on second lower level? Etc. Photos attached, of Koru.
 
I understand this is a speculative question.
  
I have sailed on small boats but never been on a superyacht.
 
I am not asking for a prediction of stylistic or decorative preferences, but in a broader sense, there are crew quarters presumably in the bottom or lower in vessel. There is a state room, some VIP guest rooms, some standard guest rooms. There is a galley, fridges freezers, etc. Some large entertaining area on upper level? A living room or kitchen for crew. Presumably jacuzzis, a small pool, and large common areas. A massage area, a gym, some kind of office, etc. 
 
Can someone who knows yachts, sailing super yachts especially, maybe look at these two yachts, and give me some informed speculation about interior layout?
 
Has anyone been on a superyacht? What kinds of luxuries have you observed above and beyond the obvious, that are cool and impressive, and would not occur to a person who has not been there?
 
I want to write a fight scene that occurs atop a mast, one that is not preposterously unrealistic, and might also ask questions about this.
 
Finally, could one hide something in one of the radomes on a mast?

I have attached pictures of Bezos new yacht, Koru, to help visualization.
 
Thank you to anyone who can help. This, just to be clear, for fiction writing. Thanks again.

I have only been on one once, this was in Padstow, Cornwall England. This was a charity event all proceeds to cancer research, this was a guided tour that covered all areas, three decks, nowhere near the scale of the Bezos boat, probably half the size, imagine a luxury penthouse in New York, this was like that. Crew quarters were similar to main cabins just on a smaller scale, similar size to a bedroom in a three bedroom semi,UK size semi.
Yacht masts are very slim and straight can't see how you could stage a fight like on a square rigger. Most you could do is a shin up fight, imagine climbing a flagpole, really if someone climbed a yacht mast to escape, they have trapped themselves.
You could hide small items in Raydome, presumably you are thinking something pistol size ? Plenty of hiding spaces on a yacht.

Thanks for the reply.

Couple other questions if feeling generous.

Take the koru, as an example. On the upper cabin level, the front would be the cockpit or whatever, where captain looks out steers boat. Entering from rear, you would have the saloon or salon, whichever called. What would be behind that moving forward in lots of boats? Would the master stateroom/bedroom be up high on that level, for better view, or on second level (of rooms/cabins/whatever). Or maybe behind that is dining room? A living room area?

When you have full blown kitchen tables and chairs on back on boat that big, how do they stay there when sailing? Magnets? Little nodules in floor they sit in? Pack them up every time sail? I have been on small sailboats, but nothing that was like a penthouse in a sailboat.

On the second level, assume you have guest staterooms. Walking in from rear, another Salon? Then hallway to guestrooms? Then past that master suite/stateroom for owner? With some kind of entry area with desk, couches, vanities, whatever? On the koru, there is this forward section no windows, on that second roomed floor, below the upper roomed/cabined floor. Is the master cabin there? Wouldn't they want windows? If not, what is forward with no windows?

Would there be 2 lower levels, or one. There is one with small circular portholes. Are the guest cabins there? Crew quarters? Where is fridge, galley etc.

The upper windows permanent closed, or open to allow air in?

I don't want to turn this into brain surgery, but anyone who had ten minutes to write even a brief description, would be super grateful. I am not just being lazy, but I am so ignorant I don't even know something as basic as where master stateroom would be. I hardly expect a schematic, and I know there is variation according to proclivities of owners, but in rough terms, what would be where on all levels.

Thank you again for anyone that can help.

The answer to most of your questions is anywhere on any level, only limited by the stability of the vessel.
Majority of large items will be fixed.
Cockpit is called a bridge on something this big.
