The overall feeling of the interior will be of space and light, with design inspiration drawn from the owners’ previous yacht. A family orientated layout, with a natural flow between the owner and crew spaces, will create an open plan apartment style layout that maximizes the interior. “This layout, where you can virtually see from the forward bulkhead to the aft bulkhead was a major part of the design brief and layout optimisation discussion,” says Lay.
A focal living space on board will be the spacious full beam salon, with portholes, skylights and high level coachroof windows all streaming light inwards. The salon features a bar to starboard and a versatile dining area for eight people.
Accommodating eight guests, the cabins will be themed around memorable trips on board the owner’s previous yacht. “The colour schemes have been meticulously worked around the owner’s photographic images which will eventually adorn the new yacht’s bulkheads,” says Lay. The full beam owner’s cabin is located aft and features skylights to add natural light and allow airflow without air conditioning.
“Adam Lay Studio is delighted to be working with the owners and their family on this project,” says Lay. “It is a pleasure to work with Germán Frers again after our successful collaboration on the five times award-winning S/Y Inukshuk and also with Yachting Developments after a successful collaboration on the award-winning refit of J-Class Endeavour.”
“It has been a pleasure for Yachting Developments specialist interior team to work on the interior of Hull 1012, which has been so beautifully designed by Adam Lay together with the owners,” says Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments. “As the build of Hull 1012 enters its final six months we are looking forward to showing off the end result to the world.”
A full interior design overview and designer’s statements will released upon Hull 1012’s launch.
