We’re excited! For the past several months, Superyacht Storytellers has been hard at work designing our first book. Spectacular Superyachts: Inspired Interiors is the result, and if we do say so ourselves, the results are spectacular.
The book is the culmination of 25 years of observation. From the moment I entered the yachting industry in 1993 to the current day, one thing has remained the same. Every yacht I’ve seen, of every size and style, has had a story to tell. So, we pulled together nearly two dozen yachts that are among the best storytellers around for Spectacular Superyachts: Inspired Interiors. Through more than 100 photos, we share the fantastic tales behind their design: what the owners wanted, and how the world’s top designers made it all happen.
Some of the stories are simply astounding. Take Kismet (left), for example. One of the most exclusive yachts in the world, and among the world’s 100 largest superyachts, she belongs to an extraordinary owner who wanted to provide extraordinary experiences for friends, business associates, and charter guests. This two-deck-high atrium really puts it all into perspective. The piano bar (a piano and a bar combined) fills the atrium with music, luring those on the second level to come to those Art Deco-inspired railings to get a better listen, and look.
Spectacular Superyachts: Inspired Interiors allows you to see Kismet, along with 20 additional impressive yachts, as if you were standing in their rooms yourselves. You’ll see and learn:
- how the chandelier cascading through the main stairway onboard Aquila (281 feet/85.6 meters) is comprised of more than 850 pieces of hand-blown glass
- how a regulation-size padel court—more than 66 feet/20 meters long—is the heart and soul aboard Aviva (323 feet/98.4 meters)
- how a mere $34,000 in the 1950s led to the creation of Christina O (325 feet/99.13 meters), perhaps the most famous yachts in the world, featuring a fireplace framed in semi-precious lapis lazuli.
