Tankoa Yachts | About Classic Principles Of Contemporary Design
Tankoa has launched M/Y Solo at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018. Rethinking the exterior lines of Suerte (another mega yacht of Genoa-based shipyard), Francesco Paszkowski Design in cooperation with Margherita Casprini, has created a true yacht interior marvel.
The idea behind the Solo’s interior design was to create an exquisitely elegant atmosphere by designing a modern, minimalist but warm interior. The use of cold materials like marble and steel as well as contrasting them with the subdued tones of the soft furnishing and carpets create timelessness and enhance the sense of elegance. The balance that is essential in the overall design language is reflected in the finest yacht interior craftsmanship that remained focused on the smallest detail, creating "the big picture of human art".
Main woods: high gloss Macassar ebony, “fiammato grigio”, custom tinted grey oak and black oak.
Ceilings: made of brushed aluminium panels, tinted grey oak and nubuck.
Stones: Forest Black Antique marble from France, Cappuccino marble from Rajasthan, Striato Elegante Honed marble from India, and Pure White Onyx from Mexico.
Stairwell flooring: of white Onyx Cristallino while the walls are made of destressed oak sourced from a 300-year-old farm in Norway.
Hammam marble: Calacatta from Tuscany.
The sauna wood: sourced from a medieval castle in Finland.
B.E.A.C.H CLUB - Best Escape Anyone Can Have
The yacht interiors radiate a contrast with their minimalist but cozy modernity. The fact that the external and the internal design language remains surprisingly harmonious (the Owner’s desire was to create a strong contrast between interior and exterior), is a true testimony for the masterful craftsmanship of Francesco Paszkowski Design.
In her six cabins M/Y Solo can accommodate twelve guests. The hairdressing/massage room, an amazing beach club, a glass-walled gym with its own terrace, spa and a swimming pool are just some of the features to provide all the necessary comforts for the Owner as well as for charter guests. For the ultimate charter experience Francesco Paszkowski underlines that this design: “required continuity between the various social spaces, a precise but flexible division according to use, good communication between the exterior and interior, and the rigorous use of architectural principles”.
The Beach Club, a key feature on board SOLO, is a fabulous place of relaxation, rest and tranquility. It's equipped with sofas, bar, TV, bathroom and an oversized glass-walled gym (created by Technogym) with fold-out terrace that is also directly linked to the spa zone. The latter comes with sauna, also fitted with its own fold-out terrace, hammam and 5°C Celsius chilled water shower.
MASTER SUITE - Make Your Rest Artful
The master suite has separate terraces and a Bisazza mosaic-tiled, glass-walled jacuzzi. Full-height windows with 180° views enable admiring new horizons and drifting in endless sea of space while the two skylights further enhance the sense of freedom. The Owner's study (as well as the hair dressing/massage room) can be converted into additional cabins as they are both equipped with an en-suite bathroom.

Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) Impacts Yacht Interiors
"Virtual Reality was once the dream of science fiction. But the internet was also a dream, and so were computers and smart phones. The future is coming". Mark Zuckerberg's predictions may confirm very soon.
Virtual Reality is set to become a billion dollar industry. In 2016, Goldman Sachs estimated that it will reach $80 billion in revenue by 2025, both in hardware and software.
As an exciting technology that allows owners and buyers to get on board of a fully designed superyacht before it is built, Virtual Reality transforms building and buying process offering a totally different level of experience, especially with the tour of luxury yacht interiors.
ANCHOR-VR launches a Virtual Atelier dedicated to the superyacht Owners and industry professionals, founded by Anastasia Yushkova, former Editor-in-Chief of Boat International magazine and The Superyachts book in the Russian market.
Solutions offered by the company include Virtual Prototyping Software, Interactive Exhibition Solutions, High-quality Real-Time 3D Content to assist marketing and sales, Consulting on Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) Strategy, as well as Integration Services and Training.
VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING SOFTWARE
ANCHOR-VR is able to guide a potential or committed yacht owner through the whole creative process, introducing and immersing him in the design and easing his decision making process during subsequent project development.
Using VR technology, a potential client is able to interact with one or more design concepts during, for instance, a boat show, to discover the possibilities of a yacht in greater detail. Using VR configurator, he can tweak the design to fit his exact needs.
Following the signing of a contract, the owner is able to communicate with his project development team using Virtual Prototyping software. This would allow him to discuss subjects such as the yacht’s general arrangement plans, volumes, and its ergonomics, with his design team — each of whom might be in a different physical location — while walking through the design in real-life scale.
At a more advanced stage, a highly realistic virtual mock-up could be ‘built’ to give a clear impression on the design, allowing timely decisions to be made on textures, colors and ergonomics. Last, but not least, the owner is able to store the digital twin of his vessel on a memory stock and share it with family and friends, allowing them a realistic tour of his new yacht while eagerly awaiting the delivery of his luxury superyacht.
Impressive statistics show the high value that VR/AR brings to product development, decreasing construction time by 25%, reducing the duration of meetings to review mock-ups by up to 50%, while having the potential to lower fail costs by up to 75%.
The earlier that those involved adopt this technology, the sooner they discover its advantages. VR/AR removes stress from designers and project managers while providing realism and excitement together with a heightened sense of anticipation and motivation to yacht owners.
ANCHOR-VR will be happy to assist in the exciting journey of yacht interior design and construction, offering the knowledge, expertise and inspiration found within its team of skilled, motivated and enthusiastic VR professionals, together with significant cost savings.

Building a Design Legacy of Award-Winning Ilumen 28M Series by Dominator Yachts
Old ways will never open new doors. The commitment that unlocked the door of Imagination allowed the vision of Luca Catino, who is responsible for the interior design of Cadet V to stand out, to look different and to show that difference boldly, with no regrets. Built by Dominator Yachts, part of Ilumen 28M series - M/Y Cadet V is the custom-made and unique to the last detail masterpiece of Italian Design. This luxury yacht won the "Best Semi-custom Yacht of the Year" award at The World Yacht Trophies 2018 in Cannes.
Key features of Cadet V include three stylish en-suite large stateroom while the main deck offers elegant outside dining area shaded by flybridge hardtop.
Two beautiful artworks by Stefano Curto featuring thousands of stunning Swarovski crystals in the main salon and master cabin take pride of place in the refined yacht interior. The gorgeous suede by Foglizzo forms a part of a different colour scheme in each of the luxurious cabins. The bathrooms feature an accompanying handmade file rouge mosaic by Sicis, while the pearl grey parquet accentuated by darker ‘comento’ edging provides a soft palette for the blue agate recessed on the walls of the master cabin and lower deck lobby.
What makes this boat unique is, according to Luca Catino, the use of “primitive forms and their intersection that generates elements that we can cyclically find in every environment".
Passion for art is the supreme source of inspiration, followed by the taste of the Owner and the characteristics of a Nordic design like minimalistic, decluttered spaces, warm woods, cool blue and gray textiles. Modern and clean lines are to keep the entire space feeling cohesive and effortlessly elegant.
A lot of attention was given to the selection of materials of extreme richness and contrasts. Fine woods used to dress the yacht interiors, with tonalities of grey and blue oak reflect the lifestyle living shaped in the integrity with the natural environment.
Cadet V presents the combination of an advanced technology and master craftsmanship that produces one-off works of art, luxury and style. The ultra-modern design is completely unique to the industry. By mastering strong visual contrasts, screaming out the contemporary and masculine aesthetics, Luca Catino embraced the design as a way of life and art that can never be imitation.

M/Y Stella di Mare | Timeless Beauty Tells Her Design Story
Stella Di Mare is an outstanding full displacement explorer yacht with interior designed by world class interior architect Umberto Fossati - the Owner of Fossati Design Bureau. This exceptional yacht was presented at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018, being one of the smallest (39,67m), but most original custom yachts on display.
The Yacht Interior is inspired by Post-Modern movement of 70s. A wave of bold contrasts and new colors prevailed over the austere palettes of the Modern era. By taking inspiration from resources of history, redefining it and adapting for modern use, Fossati created an emotional content and transcendent design experience.
The primary materials include: warm walnut, cherry and black lacquered wood, brown and beige leather as well as brushed bronze that represent a classical elegance with a twist of contemporary touch. Salon on the main deck and its double “L” shape sofas merge the space with the dining table for 12/14 guests.
The contemporary floor standing globe in the upper deck is made by famous artisan globe makers Bellerby & Co, who also created a globe chart installed in the dining area. As a truly unique custom-made addition to the interior design based on Fossati’s project, the globes became a trademark of M/Y Stella di Mare.
When life gives you twists and turns, embark yourself on an Italian boat: a custom made wine cellar that can contain up to 800 bottles are tribute to the typical Italian lifestyle, brought to the greatest perfection, offering enjoyment and appreciation of life with the best cuisine and finest wines.
The Owner’s desire was to have a full custom interior for formal use without missing the functional necessities of the Explorer yacht. His intention was also to “create a connection between three generations of Family, by giving the possibility to leave a personal touch onboard starting from the first generation of 75 years old to the third one of 7 years old".
Stella di Mare (built by CBI Navi) and her post-modern interior design embraced a broader concept of timelessness than retro. Trends come and go. Style, in turn, evolves, endures and transcends generations.

THE BEST YACHT INTERIOR DESIGN AS A BUSINESS OF TRUST
They say it's not talent as an independent element to decide about the success of yacht interior design but talent in relationship with "design ideas as an expression of purpose". The success of M/Y Irisha was to define and develop a solution for universal design that would be understood and used for a better quality of life.
After winning the award for the Best Interior Design at the World Yacht Trophies 2018 in Cannes, M/Y Irisha presented her dynamic exterior lines and fabulous interior space at the Monaco Yacht Show held from 26 to 29 September 2018.
The excellent choice of colors and materials of this 51-metre fully custom motor yacht carry the touch of Harrison Eidsgaard. Irisha's interior is the essence of modern design and a well-conceived concept that will forge an emotional connection with charter guests, creating an environment that "fills purpose".
The award winning interior areas were designed to evoke a sense of tranquility and quiet elegance. This is further enhanced by the use of neutral tones, the application of soft but precisely designed light sources, the sensibly luxurious furniture and even the gloss and matte material covering the walls.
The interior spaces can be used for hosting formal events while can easily serve as the cozy hideaway to clear your mind. The winter garden on the aft deck is a perfect example of the multi-purpose nature of most interior spaces providing another "avenue" for Owners and guests to feel close to nature and connect with the energy of the Ocean. Once the separator glass wall is removed, the garden becomes a part of the main dining area with an extendable dining table, large enough for up to 22 guests.
In case some private time is required, the owner’s stateroom with its quiet and – thanks to the large windows – well lit study provides the perfect space. The hand-felted silk bedhead in the master cabin created by Claudy Jongstra - a famous Dutch artist and textile designer - evokes a sense of casual and discrete luxury.
Another striking design element is the staircase connecting all three decks. Realizing this staircase with its organic shapes provided another unique challenge to tackle but once DKT Artworks has done their magic the staircase became recognizable and awe-inspiring feature among yacht interior designers.
Combining the exceptional visual language of Harrison Eidsgaard with the work of "creative minds and disciplined eyes" of the superb team involved in the project, Heesen Yachts added to their new addition to the fleet a perfect balance between form and function, creating a multi-layered relationship between human life and its water environment onboard the vessel.
M/Y Irisha is currently available for charter with SuperYachtsMonaco.
Riva 110' Dolcevita: A Visual Extravaganza Made in Italy
Do you remember that iconic moment of cinematography as Anita Ekberg walked into fontaine de Trevi in Fellini’s classic La Dolce Vita? The new addition to the fleet of Riva Yacht is carrying the name Dolcevita for a reason – that same atmosphere of luxurious elegance and hedonistic freedom pulsing through the classic scene is radiating from the super sporty silhouette and dynamic lines of this innovative flybridge yacht.
Following the path laid out by 100’ Corsaro, the cooperation between Officina Italiana Design and the Strategic Product Committee of Ferretti Group Engineering Department brought a really unique vessel to life, especially in terms of exterior design where the already dynamic and sleek shape of the white hull is emphasized by the sweeping glass surfaces providing a glass-hull ratio most likely unparalleled among yachts of this class. High-quality stainless steel provides both structural strength for the superstructure and a frame to hold the window area that extends all along the main salon. This one of a kind feature used extensively not just in the exterior but also in the interior, as well as adoption of carbon fibre evokes the sort of sophisticated high-tech feeling that will be attractive to the clients looking for a more dynamic and contemporary ambiance.
The main salon is designed to feel like an open loft with its enormous windows providing unobstructed view of the sea. The cleverly chosen furniture with the simple and elegant accessories reduce clutter to a minimum. The polished flooring working in parallel with the polished ceiling optically enlarges the available space, while the meticulously chosen colours and surfaces help dividing the open area. The darker tone of the decks with the light colour of the furniture is framing the overall design, while conforming to the design language of breezy, relaxing and sporty character.
Riva 110' Dolcevita was available for viewing along with four other premières from Ferretti Yachts, Custom Line and Riva (Ferretti Yachts 670, Custom Line 120’, Riva 66’ Ribelle and Custom Line Navetta 42) at Cannes Yachting Festival held between the 11th and the 16th September 2018.
MONACO YACHT SHOW 2018 SETS THE SCENE FOR A NEW QUALITY IN YACHT DESIGN
The first words that come to mind when you take a look at Illusion Plus? - Design as a Journey of Discovery. The innovative approach to yachting by presenting luxury in simplicity of line and form sets a new direction in yacht interior design.
Illusion Plus is the latest project of Pride Mega Yachts. A Netherlands based firm - Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design - was responsible for creating the exquisite, travel-inspired interiors. The use of spacious layouts, custom furniture and luxurious accessories are the hallmarks of their aesthetics.
The combination of contemporary furniture of straight and elegant lines with traditional materials of glass, exclusive metal, natural stone and fine wood creates an atmosphere that emanates modernity and a unique Asian taste. The palette used is light and earthy - it strengthens the feeling of closeness to nature and helps to create a serene and accommodating atmosphere that suits the taste of modern owners who prefer spending their time in private luxury. The interior is defined by long sight lines, huge windows and open areas to let light spill in. The use of natural light bouncing off polished metal, shiny glass and veneered wood surfaces is underscored by subtle shades, tones and hidden artificial lighting.
This rich choice of materials accentuates the feel of luxury. Fine and rare wood is integrated with metals, leather and natural stone using unrivalled artisanship to create contemporary and elegant atmosphere in both the interior and the exterior area. All the fixtures and accessories are supplied by the world’s finest manufacturers and in many cases they are custom-made exclusively for this project.
Illusion Plus merges Asian tradition with a modern look providing wide-open decks and tranquil social spaces. These interiors are designed in harmony with nature and will provide the Owner and his guests with exceptional lifestyle experience.
M/Y Illusion Plus will be presented at Monaco Yacht Show 2018.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE CRUISER A SHOWSTOPPER
Shearwater, a stunning 57 foot carbon electric propulsion high-performance cruiser was launched in Sydney last month after a three-year build Kit Carlier Design worked from concept phase to installation on the interior fit out of the project with the legendary German (Mani) Frers and innovative McConaghy Boats, Australia. Commissioned by a client who ‘knew his stuff’ and expected the best, the aspirational, multi-faceted project was guided by the principle that a cruising yacht shouldn’t have to compromise on performance.
“The key structural elements of this extreme-performance yacht, including the ability to be sailed single-handed, were blended with a soft palette of luxurious and natural interior finishings. This included the pairing of natural teak flooring with rich, walnut cabinetry and matte-finished carbon features,” says Kit Carlier, Director of Kit Carlier Design.
“In addition, the large deck hatches let natural light pour into the open plan layout, which boasts a customisable configuration, specifically tailored to the client’s entertaining style.”
Every aspect of the interior design was carefully considered to ensure weight was kept to an absolute minimum. Unnecessary weight was removed by replacing typically heavy items with custom carbon alternatives for areas such as vanities and toilets.
With a key goal being to minimise the impact on the environment, the yacht features two high-tech electric sail-drives with hydro-regeneration capacity, solar panels on the coach roof, and a waste treatment system.

PROJECT MAIA: PHENOMENAL YACHT INTERIOR SPACE BY REYMOND LANGTON AND HEESEN YACHTS
The unique design solutions of Heesen Yachts are to meet the most demanding construction standards and to solve the most complex aesthetic challenges. Project Maia is the embodiment of this philosophy. She is a 50m steel-hulled, full displacement motor yacht below the 500GT threshold. Her bulbous bow and an easily driven fast displacement hull form are optimized to glide through the water with minimal vertical movement, yet designed using the latest developments in ship building engineering.
Reymond Langton Design was entrusted with the creation of interior spaces for Project Maia. The company has over a decade of experience in both interior and exterior design for super yachts. In their work they crave for glamorous and highly functional solutions. Whether the requirement is for simple and elegant or more avant-garde interiors, Reymond Langton surely delivers.
The Winner of the Boat International Design and Innovation Awards 2018 has created a warm and inviting space for Maia, using a simple colour palette. This luxury balance evokes the feeling of tranquility and gives a premium lifestyle experience, which is so deeply rooted in all Reymond Langton design aesthetics.
The contemporary Zen-like feel is achieved by combining simple lines with textured materials. They provide a subtle contrast to the yacht interior accessories. A sense of harmony in space “warms” interior design and keeps it at the highest visual standards.
During the daytime the interior areas receive a fair amount of natural light, yet in the evenings thoughtful indirect LED lighting provides a warm and inviting ambience with a soft overall glow while drawing the eye to key design features. The atmosphere has been additionally enhanced by using subtle hidden sources and bright spotlights emphasizing certain areas of the interior. All these little details make the design and provide further proof for Reymond Langton’s recognized excellence in yacht interior design.
The delivery is scheduled for later this year and remains one of the most anticipated events in yachting industry.
