I grew up sailing and I always knew I wanted to go into interior design, so when I discovered the industry it seemed perfect. My job is very varied, and I am lucky to get involved at all levels of the design, client facing and project management.
Superyachts should be at the forefront of technology. Keeping up with the rapid evolution of tech is a challenge due to build time, but if this can be improved, it would bring the yachting industry up to speed.
When I first joined the industry, it was all about extreme opulence and now it’s more about comfort and adventure. Maybe in 20 years’ time owners will use yachts as homes and superyacht offices more permanently.
