It seems that some of the most notable changes are to happen to the exterior, seen that her owner has ordered changing the original white exterior to feature dark grey coloring, while at the same time updating her lines by Unique Yacht Design.
Another relevant change that is set to happen to Starburst III is related to the interiors of the ship.

It seems that some of her features are to remain in the vessel, among them a sky lounge, a relaxation area with seating and a Jacuzzi. Right now, the main saloon has the advantage of being easily transformed into an open saloon thanks to large sliding doors though it’s unconfirmed if this feature will remain or not.
