The hallways alone stand out from anything else of their kind, looking like they should belong in a luxury hotel. No wonder, on a boat with a total length of 72.60 metres. And now to the cabins: just like the discovery of something that hasn’t yet reached our shores – the very latest in luxury. A level of excellence pertinent to our work, from the six cabins on the main deck to the bathrooms and corridors, and from the two cabins on the lower deck to the panelling of the red rimstone stairways which span all four decks – boundless excellence prevails wherever you go. We demonstrated our expertise in style when it came to the treatment of stone materials and the striking contrasts in each of the bathrooms. The same goes for the combination of different wood types, which give the cabins an individual look all of their own, complemented by special surface finishings for the furniture, often inlaid with bronze and red gold pigments, and then dabbed with a sponge to a darkish tone. The hallway on the main deck was designed using a combination of elm, fabric and leather – a subtle mélange that appears in different nuances throughout the boat and that captures the character of this yacht, designed to travel a distance of 5,000 sea miles.
