Motor yacht Keyla emerges from refit at RMK - exclusive designer interview
by Malcolm MacLean
RMK Marine has announced the delivery of Trinity's 45.3m Keyla after a major refit that lasted more than a year and a half and we have an exclusive interview from her designer, Antonio Romano, at Hot Lab.
Romano designed the refit of ex-Stanley Z and ex-Chevy Toy, now Keyla, with design partners Enrico Lumini and Michele Dragoni.'We've followed the construction process with more than two meeting per month in the yard and with the clients,' Romano says. 'We've worked well with the RMK team and we're happy and proud about the final result.
'The refit was extensive,' he continues. 'The boat is now two metres longer, with a new beach platform, the exterior hull colour is different and the interior design is totally altered: we've saved only the main handrail of the interior staircase and changed all the rest. Even the crew area is new.
'Wow factors include the central staircase, the new main saloon/dining areas are no longer divided into two separate areas and precious materials and outstanding workmanship define the quality of the refit.'
