The brief for this project was to create a more residential and calming feel to the space, whilst enhancing the original attributes of the saloon and dining area. This design invites you into a comfortable lounge area with ample seating for friends and family to enjoy a well-earned tipple or canapé. Two curvaceous loose armchairs by high-end furniture designer Holly Hunt open the space on the starboard side and provide a sense of homeliness, where you can settle down with a good book or enjoy the views aft through the cockpit. Exquisitely crafted chevron timber flooring now runs seamlessly into the helm area. Within the timber at the aft end of the saloon sits a shimmering rug insert by Kelly Wearstler at the Rug Company. The grey blue colouration and wave-like patterning hints at the open seas, immediately drawing your attention to the views on both the port and starboard.
The custom bespoke sofa has been designed with high comfort expectations, incorporating a sprung-domed base and relaxed back cushions, creating a unique piece that is the ultimate in luxury. You are now able to sit and relax and enjoy uninterrupted views through the cockpit, thanks to what is now a chaise section at the aft end of the sofa. The curvaceous nature of the furniture elements in this seating area are echoed in the dining area, thanks to the introduction of a beautifully crafted walnut dining table and dining chairs by Italian designers Ceccotti. Plush furnishing fabrics and fresh line out materials are complimented with the harder elements of exquisite joinery and a custom-made art panel to the dining bulkhead that is softly backlit.
The master cabin continues the language of the main saloon, with a restful ethos at the heart of the design. The use of custom-crafted plantation shutters not only adds a tailored luxury finish but also provides the ability to achieve a much higher level of blackout than other more conventional window dressings.
A beautiful contrast is achieved between deep gloss Macassar Ebony timber bulkheads and the fresh woven, patterned fabric to the headboard bulkhead. Elegant ceramic wall artwork with a dreamlike quality has been installed to optimise the feeling of tranquillity in this space. Underneath, the now plump headboard has been raised in height for extra comfort. The curvaceous language seen in the saloon is echoed with a hero dressing table chair by Italian designers Ceccotti, while the shapely breakfast chairs are custom-sized to suit this space perfectly. The breakfast table and bedside tables now showcase beautiful marble tops, which not only lift the space visually but also provide a practical solution. The elegant saddle-stitched leather that wraps the base of the breakfast table is beautifully echoed as a wrap around the side tables.
The headlining in both the saloon and master cabin has been simplified and lightened, adding in a fresh, hard finish with light textural material that provides extra interest on closer inspection. With its tranquil colour palette, ultra-comfortable bed and deeply plush carpet, this is now the perfect place to unwind after a long day at sea or a delicious supper at your nearby marina.

This Princess 88 is entering an exciting new life as a charter yacht. With this in mind it was imperative to design a practical space that can deal with a busy environment and going on looking as great as the day it was installed for many years.
This Sunseeker 82 saloon provides an exemplary base for a fun and curvaceous redesign. We have significantly modernised the seating area with the removal of the timber to the upper part of the curved port side bulkhead and replacing this with a small geometric weave material.
