New Build Stories: Inside the Design and Build of Life Saga

12 August 2020

In this episode of New Build Stories, BOAT chats with Gian Marco Campanino, art director of The Italian Sea Group, and interior designer Mark Berryman on the 65 metre Admiral superyacht Life Saga


The owner of Life Saga “doesn’t go indoors unless the weather is diabolical,” says the yacht’s captain. So the creation of the boat was focused very much on maximising outdoor lifestyle.


The main deck – known as the “sea deck” – is an open-air, casual space, featuring an indoor/outdoor aft deck that takes up the majority of the level, leading in to a covered deck area with flexible seating and a bar, plus retractable glass partitions that open up the space on three sides.


“The boundaries between indoor and outdoor are really very thin,” says Gian Marco Campanino. There are more spectacular, open spaces up on the sundeck and down on the beach club (open on three sides) as well as an upper deck dining spot that can be opened to the elements. 


Mark Berryman’s neutral tones, soft textures and faintly Asian decor flow between inside and out, emphasising the yacht’s laid-back raison d'être.
