Interiors

 The  Interior  Design  Brief  for  deVosdeVries  design  was  to  create  “something  different”and  contemporary,  but  with  a  casual  and  welcoming  feel,  using  the  excellent  skills  of  Nautor’s  craftsmen.  The  direction  determined  by  the  initial  design  proposals  resulted  in  a  light  grey,  stained  oak  finish  with  a  brushed  treatment  throughout,  maintaining  a  link  with  the  base  material  Nautor  often  uses  for  their  interiors.  This  has  been  complemented  with  contemporary  raised  paneling  on  the  upper  sections  of  the  bulkheads,  using  a  crown-cut  veneer  with  bookmatched  grain  patterns.  The  carefully  selected  veneers  are  small  works  of  art  in  themselves  and  are  repeated  on  the  cabin  and  wardrobe  doors.

 Contrast  is  provided  by  the  dark,  crown-cut  wenge  floors,  fitted  with  a  distinctive  cross  plank  detail.  This  gives  the  interior  a  slightly  industrial  undertone.  The  interior  has  many  details  that  make  it  extra  special,  ranging  from  the  beautifully  crafted,  rounded  corner  details,  to  the  handrail  recesses  and  table  finishes.  Neutral  soft  furnishings  in  a  selection  of  grey  tones  finish  it  all  off  and  create  a  link  with  the  grey  colour  scheme  of  the  deck  hardware.  The  interior  created  is  fully  functional  with  all  the  required  comfort  and  amenities  constructed  using  lightweight  foam  and  carbon  cores  in  order  to  meet  the  strict  weight  requirements.  Michiel  de  Vos  deVosdeVries  design  said  “We  at  deVosdeVries  design  were  extremely  proud  to  be  able  to  design  this  interior  and  work  with  Nautor,  a  shipyard  with  such  a  great  history  of  building  excellent  sailing  yachts.
