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.
