Boat International Design & Innovation Awards 2018 Winners Announced

5 of 19 5/19

Best Interior Design - Motor Yachts 400GT to 999GT


Length: 47m

Interior designer: H2 Yacht Design

Naval architect: Camuzzi Engineering

Builder: Turquoise Yachts

For the first yacht issued after a change in the majority ownership of the yard, Turquoise Yachts had something to prove. To shorten delivery time, this vessel was purchased mid-build as a bare hull and superstructure and brought to Turquoise for total rethinking, including upping the guest accommodation with an additional stateroom and Pullman berths. British-based H2 Yacht Design was tasked to deliver a balance between wow factor and wide market appeal, a challenge our judges felt they met with flair. The ability of H2’s designers and the yard to deliver a sense of spaciousness within a fixed envelope is noteworthy with recessed ceilings featuring undulating gloss panels, while mother-of-pearl, Swarovski crystals and polished stainless surfaces reflect light. Low furniture and window seats preserve views through enlarged windows and reduced mullions, while smart architecture, floating furniture and hidden lighting makes rooms appear larger. Knowing the yard’s capability with stone, H2 emphasised this feature to great effect, especially in the lightly veined Turkish ivory marble central staircase. Obviously in full agreement with our judges, new owners purchased this vessel shortly after her debut appearance.
