IT TAKES A VERY SPE­CIFIC SET OF SKILLS TO DE­SIGN IN­TE­RI­ORS FOR SU­PERY­ACHTS. Tam­sin Brad­shaw TALKS TO FOUR OF THE WORLD’S TOP NAMES ABOUT WHAT FLOATS THEIR BOATS

Hong Kong Tatler - - Con­tents -

Four of the best de­sign­ers of yacht in­te­ri­ors talk about what floats their boat

LUX­URY AFLOAT The lav­ishly ap­pointed su­pery­acht Preda­tor sports in­te­ri­ors by Ban­nen­berg & Row­ell

Last year, the 180-me­tre Az­zam top­pled Rus­sian bil­lion­aire Ro­man Abramovich’s 164-me­tre Eclipse from its perch as the world’s largest mo­tor yacht. Ves­sels of this scale de­mand in­te­ri­ors as im­pres­sive as their ex­te­ri­ors. The style and func­tion­al­ity re­quired can­not be achieved by just any old de­signer, given the con­straints of the unique in­te­rior spa­ces and the yachts’ op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ments.

Only a hand­ful of spe­cial­ists have the abil­ity to de­liver such de­sign qual­ity, among them Ban­nen­berg & Row­ell, Rémi Tessier, Sil­ver­lin­ing and Molori De­sign. Some be­came in­volved in yacht fur­ni­ture and in­te­ri­ors by chance while oth­ers have spent years study­ing the struc­tural as­pects of the trade. But how­ever they came to the in­dus­try, their unique, fresh ap­proaches place them among the most sought-af­ter de­sign­ers of yacht in­te­ri­ors in the world.
