Keeley Green Interior Design (KG Design) has released the first images of the 34.5-metre Princess Iluka following a comprehensive interior refit.

Delivered in 1979 as the flagship of Kemp R, Princess Iluka is constructed entirely of Huon Pine, a protected tree species native to Tasmania.

The yacht's interior refit incorporated both international and local influences, according to the studio. Wall panels were sourced from France and Spain while her new timber flooring is from Queensland, laid out in a herringbone pattern. Accommodation is for up to 10 guests across five cabins, including a master cabin with its own private spa and lounge.

Princess Iluka provides guests with something a little more unique – she has a soul,” explained KG Design director Keeley Green. "She features all of the modern conveniences expected today, with a nod to the romance of travel in the past."
