Climate control to extend the life of art on board

The air quality and temperature within each room is important: humidity is bad for art, as is salt air and direct sunlight. "You always have to be aware of humidity and heat on board," explains Milan Salcedo. "Strict insurance requirements mean even museums have to fulfil high standards before important pieces are allowed to be shown and your yacht is no different. Special climate boxes are needed for transportation and you may need to install an alarm system to alert you to atmospheric changes."

Display works only where the climate can be effectively controlled and the elements shut out. And avoid placing anything of value near a vent, heat or cooling source. Superyacht Revelry (ex-SnowbirD, pictured) achieves this effortlessly thanks to panelled walls and artworks include pieces by Alexander Calder, Ellsworth Kelly and Richard Diebenkorn.
