Andrew Winch on the interior design of Here Comes the Sun

Andrew Winch on the interior design of Here Comes the Sun

Speaking to Tory Kingdon, superyacht designer Andrew Winch remembers the harmony of Here Comes the Sun

We launched her in 2016, but Here Comes the Sun, the Amels Limited Editions 272 (the largest in the range at 83 metres), remains a favourite past project. We had worked with the client on an earlier yacht, Imagine, and that helped us with the second project because we already had a strong sense of the owners’ tastes.

The yacht is spread over six floors, and the ceilings are very high because both owners are tall. Imagine had a similar ceiling height, and the feeling on both boats is of a large, open space, with more air flow.

The brief was to create a home, a floating island. When you look around, each room feels nicely proportioned. Inside, the client wanted a calm, beachy atmosphere, with soft colours to create a relaxing ambience.

The interior design takes inspiration from natural materials – there is nothing shiny on this yacht. All of the materials are textured, from the carved wooden flooring planks and the honed stone walls in the bathrooms, to the engraved vineyard spiralling up the staircase. Each space gives you a sense of exploration as well as a feeling of comfort for owner and family.
