Built in 1984 by CRN Ancona, Italy, the
55mt (181 foot ) MY Achilles retains the
charm of builds of that time.
In the spring of 2007 Trimline Superyacht Interiors were
contacted by the Captain of MY Achilles to explore a way
forward to refresh the interior.
The list of criteria and objectives was for a light refurbishment to finish in time for Christmas 2007. The contract developed into a full strip-out of major areas when considerable corrosion was found beneath the sole boards.
The interior design was developed with the owners; what
could be described as, high end classical meets cutting edge contemporary. The Saloon however suited an Art Deco
scheme, appropriate for the space and providing the comfort for everyday living.
Achilles contains four seminal pieces of furniture designed along with the interior by Nigel Spooner, Director Technical and Design. Creating heirlooms pieces that could be moved to the owner’s residence or a new yacht.
In-house craft skills have been pushed to the limit with the demands of the special furniture and joinery designs for the owner.
