This 115 foot hybrid luxury fishing yacht needed a fresh, new makeover and that’s exactly what she got. The heavy and gaudy furniture was removed and the gold tassels were replaced with sleek piping.

The inspiration for a lot of the design elements on this yacht came from the Art Deco and Ruhlman design styles. Incorporating the curving lines from these styles in the yacht design not only resembled waves and the ocean, but it also blended with the natural curves of the boat architecture. Since this vessel is almost constantly in motion, rounded edges of tables and corners also help prevent bumps and bruises as you walk through the space.

Clean and crisp materials were used to open up and lighten the space, an important aspect in yacht design as the area is tight and ceilings are low. The designer, Joe McCarter, also had to keep in mind that all materials must be marine grade and resistant to moisture, a welcomed challenge.

Another challenge to think about when selecting materials and colors for a vessel on the ocean is glare from the sun. Greys and blues, soft teak wood tones, and rich walnut all help absorb the sunlight while still relating to the ocean.

Every area on this boat was re-designed from the spa-like master bathroom to the illusion mist fireplace in the main salon allowing the owners to enjoy their fishing trips in the lap of luxury.
