The new design was conceived to give luxury yacht GALAXY a new identity with a less formal interior suited to a younger and more relaxed lifestyle for groups of friends but doubling as a chic party vessel for high profile events. As well as providing a neutral backdrop for his 20th Century art collection, the owner felt the calm sophisticated atmosphere needed dramatic focal features to offset the rich monochromatic textured surfaces.

The design concept adopted the approach of inserting new features into the existing interior of GALAXY yacht to add both interest and functionality. New white marmorino window surrounds in all areas complemented the existing maple and walnut while reflecting natural light into the interior. New inbuilt window seats maximise connection with the water giving panoramic views out. A new internally lit onyx bar on the main deck provides a new meeting point for guests (as well as a discrete host station for crew during parties) offset by an astonishing eye-catching backlit black agate wall behind the new dining table. The observation lounge was re-orientated to look out – not in – and provide a haven of tranquility that can be transformed into a private cinema at the touch of a button.

The use of new materials and products such as the feature marble by ShellShock Designs in the new modern interior creates bright, comfortable, flexible spaces allowing effortless change in use and mood from family to party mode by day or night supported by hugely improved service provision by the crew of luxury charter yacht GALAXY.
