Sweet harmony: Mario Pedol on the interior design of 39m My Song

Sweet harmony: Mario Pedol on the interior design of 39m My Song

Mario Pedol of Nauta Design shares the melodic interior secrets of My Song with Tory Kingdon...

The Baltic 130 custom sailing yacht My Song is a project we’re proud of. The clients, friends for many years, had very specific ideas – which we managed to accommodate – and the atmosphere around the project was really positive.

Baltic was able to construct mock-ups of the saloon and cabins so that the clients could “live” the spaces, and a number of changes were made throughout this process. A frequent request was to focus on the detail – from the materials down to the custom designed and built spotlights, to the artworks, and even the leather trays. Everything was bespoke.

We used a lot of innovative materials and design techniques on the project. The owners wanted to use a lot of linen, combined with mahogany wood: we took a pure linen fabric, laminated it, and applied it to floorboards and ceilings as well as galley worktops. The result is a palette of colours achieved using different linen textures and varied types of resins and proportions between fibre and resin. The Piment Doux upholstery fabrics on board were custom made by Loro Piana.

The furniture appears to be loose but is actually all fitted, apart from one custom designed small mahogany table: this is because, despite the boat’s nature as a superyacht racer, the client wanted the interior to be residential in feel.

When at anchor on My Song you can forget you’re on a boat, but she is a true sailing yacht: there are handrails on the ceiling because when sailing upwind at 20 degrees in rough seas, believe me, you need those handrails!”
