Best Motor Yachts Interior Design – below 500GT


Length: 36m

Interior design: Vickers Studio

Naval architect: Van Oossanen Naval Architects

Builder: Mulder

In Calypso's rich and detailed beach-house- style interior, designer John Vickers cleverly incorporated Mulder Shipyard’s 80-year history in design elements and construction techniques such as an illuminated art wall that hints at a wooden sailing ship. A bar decorated with diagonal planking is reminiscent of cold-moulded construction. The easy, well-proportioned layout featuring some built-in furniture to direct traffic flow, is appropriate to the relaxed raised pilothouse form and fits in a generous main-deck master suite and a full-beam VIP below. The decor relies on pale bleached oak, stainless steel, leather, light fabrics, louvred doors and lots of natural light spilling in through large windows. It’s a beachy, barefoot look but elegant lights and hardware make sure it’s chic, giving it an upmarket Ibiza vibe. To maximise the feeling of height, Vickers relied on a few indirectly lit tray ceilings, a theme of wall washers and lights recessed under furniture for iPad-controlled ambience. So complete was the design that when the yacht was purchased from Nick Mulder midway through construction, the new owners changed nothing but the angles of the saloon sofa backs and commissioned paintings.
