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 continue to look as great as the day it was installed, for many years to come.

Now proudly standing at the entrance of this space sit 2 Donnely chairs, designed by ‘The Sofa & Chair Company’. The keyhole back design adds visual interest and allows light to pass through the chairs achieving a more open and welcoming arrival into the Saloon area.

We start with the images at launch, only you will understand the impact after years of enjoyment given to previous owners.

The removal of a hard coffee table and addition of a round tan ottoman offers many functions within the space: as a coffee table, extra seating or a footstool, as well as providing another all-important splash of colour and visual drama. The previously dark curtains were dramatic in pattern – therefore, it was imperative to modernise them with a light, unobtrusive material that draped beautifully. Adding to this bright sophistication, we have updated the previous, heavily-patterned roman blinds with wide, light, matte Venetian slats that further lift the interior and add to the feeling of a bright, open space.

Additional comfort has been created in the dining area with the use of eight Byron dining chairs, again from the British design house The Sofa & Chair Company. Their simple design and low-back detail make this chair a modern, comfortable alternative that will stand the test of time. The deep teal upholstery is both hardwearing and stain repellent – providing a flash of colour that is perfect in a busy environment such as this.

Within the dining area, five timber-framed, fabric-wrapped panels will sit ceiling-to-floor length on the dining bulkhead. A fresh, textural fabric will be softly washed over with light provided by the stunning plaster-leaf wall lights by high-end British lighting designer Porta Romana.

A simple custom design to the sideboard leather, using beautiful saddle stitched leather, reflects the overall essence of quality and elegance in the space. A fresh re-covering of the ceiling panels in a light matte material welcomes this scheme into today’s – and even tomorrow’s – standards.

The overall visual drama is completed thanks to the introduction of a luxurious and tactile accessories package. This all-important final step ensures the scheme will make a lasting impression on anyone entering the boat.
