Top 7 luxury stationery items for your superyacht office


The pen

Whether you’re heading off on a round-the-world adventure or hosting business meetings from your Med season berth, the office is becoming an increasingly important space for every superyacht owner. However, when everything else on your yacht is custom, using any old pen or pencil simply won’t do - our round up of the best luxury stationery will help you create an office guaranteed to impress.

The pen

When closing a deal in your superyacht office it won't do to use just any old pen. What you really need to impress guests is a limited edition and Montegrappa has teamed up with Polish company Wealth Solutions to offer just the thing. Created in a numbered edition of just 10 pieces, the Gautier Cognac contains a single drop of 1762 Gautier Cognac in its cap which, at 255-years-old - is believed to be the oldest cognac in the world. The oak barrel and lid are engraved with grapevine motif hinting at the pen's precious contents while the nib is available in varying thicknesses in either sterling silver or gold.

The smart stationery

Run your business online but prefer to work on good old-fashioned pen and paper? Get the best of both worlds with Montblanc's innovative new Augmented Paper device. This elegant Italian leather organiser comes complete with a notebook and Starwalker writing instrument and contains a cleverly concealed device that can turn words, sketches and notes written in ink into editable word documents, images and pdfs at the touch of a button. Montblanc's cutting-edge handwriting recognition technology works in 15 different languages, including English, German, Russian, Spanish, Italian and Chinese, and the dedicated phone and tablet app allows you to organise, edit and search through your notes with ease.

The writing set

Once you’ve designed your perfect office, your writing equipment shouldn’t let you down. Containing a desk pad, letter opener, notelet box, pen tray, pen holder and six guilloche pencils in a beautiful tan calf leather organiser, Graf Von Faber-Castell’s desk set has everything you need to turn tedious correspondence into a complete pleasure.

The notebook

Yes, all your work may be on your laptop but, from phone messages to to-do lists, it never hurts to have a notebook handy. Smythson's green leather version is chic enough to leave on your desk and slim enough to slip into even the most streamlined briefcase.

The showstopper

Created to celebrate high-end watch and writing instrument maker Montblanc's 110th anniversary, the one-of-a-kind Rouge & Noir Ultimate Serpent may just be the most exclusive pen on the market. Inspired by the house's famous serpent-slip designs of the 1920s, this unique high jewellery version is made with 99g of rose gold - the most gold ever used by Montblanc on a single pen - and is set with 15.34 carats of blue sapphires, 153 individually cut diamonds and topped with a 6.15 carat Montblanc diamond.

The stapler

You may never have any call to use a stapler while on your superyacht but when it looks as chic as Tom Dixon’s Cube version do you really need a reason?

The table clock

A good business, like a good ship, should run like clockwork. Make sure you’re always on time with a retro-style table clock - we love Chopard’s racing car-inspired Mille Miglia version.
