Luxury yacht Vicky is based on her sister Talisman yacht’s well proven platform in terms of hull and performance. However, her superstructure has been specifically designed for the owner from scratch. Her modern and sleek look is expressed through timeless lines, with a spacious atmosphere inside.

The interior and exterior styling of Vicky yacht are the work of H2 Yacht Design. As H2’s owner and design director Jonny Horsfield reveals, the interior design brief evolved with the project. “For the interior the client initially wanted to develop a traditional, European style interior with plenty of colour and finishes to give a rich, vibrant look,” Jonny explains. “However with time this changed to a much more controlled, muted, classy timeless look achieved with the mix of some traditional carpentry and modern furniture.

“The owners’ requirements were for a multifunctioning yacht, with a definite wow factor combined with total dedication to him and his guests comfort and facilities. The layout was worked on first and it’s fair to say the final arrangement is pretty unique for a 70m yacht. The guest cabins on main deck are not new, but the huge spa area on lower deck is, as well as the full width amidships owners’ suite behind the bridge. The double height atrium on the main salon is also pretty unique in this size of yacht.

“First impressions are always important. For me I think this interior has a certain wow factor without shouting too much, yet importantly it reveals more and more detail to the guests as they spend time on board and absorb the surprisingly eclectic and detailed interior. The first impression is of a relaxed, comfortable residential feeling interior, with plenty of light. This is the result of an interesting mix of fairly classic wall treatments and carpentry details combining with some contemporary European furniture.

“What makes this yacht unique is her general arrangement. She has three distinct features. At the heart of the yacht is the full width owners’ suite behind the bridge with its fixed balconies port and starboard. This gives a stunning vista as well as total privacy. Its location required careful planning for crew access however. The style of the owners’ suite is rich and quite classic with walnut and leather panelling but the furniture is modern and eclectic. The bathroom is an explosion of back lit blue and white onyx.

“The second feature is the double height main salon or atrium. This was a feature the client had requested from the very beginning and though you lose some floor area above, the overall feeling of height and space is simply unique in a yacht of this size. The quality of light in the main salon is very comforting, with indirect light coming from above as well as from the full height windows on main deck.

“The third unique feature on a yacht this size has to be the spa area on the lower deck. On the sister ship Talisman C this area housed four good sized guest cabins so to give this over to a spa was a brave and challenging feature. The style is unashamedly Asian, with teak and limestone giving a warm and tranquil area.

“In summing up I think this yacht has many surprises up its sleeve that need time to absorb and appreciate. She feels much bigger inside with facilities you will not find on any other 70m. The style is not too challenging but is inviting and comfortable in its ambiance.”
