Guillaume Rolland on the interior design secrets of 60m Seahawk

Guillaume Rolland on the interior design secrets of 60m Seahawk

Guillaume Rolland of Liaigre shares the interior secrets of Seahawk with Tory Kingdon...

One of my favourite projects was undoubtedly Seahawk, the 60 metre ketch built by Perini Navi in 2013 for which we did the interior design. The clients came to us after seeing Rosehearty, another Perini Navi sailing yacht whose interior we oversaw. They were hoping for exactly the same look, and while we explained that it was impossible to mimic, we were happy to follow a similar theme: that of a classic design revisited.

The resulting aesthetic combines traditional codes of yacht design with modern touches. We combined a lot of liquidambar wood with teak and a silver metallic paint. In joining architectural elements we focused mainly on using delicate curves to add sensuality to the interior. Almost all of the furniture was custom designed to ensure we achieved exactly the right look.

I am very proud of the design, particularly the owner’s bathrooms as they feel like an extension of the master cabin. We used a lot of wood, and they feel far more like an interior cabin than a bathroom. Overall, we achieved a comfortable, elegant, spacious interior within a high- performance sailing yacht.
