From the clean and contemporary to the heavily ornate, each and every project Winch Design undertakes is wildly different whether it’s a floating family home or an office in the sky. Here they share with The LuxPad their top 5 luxury yacht interiors…
Marking the first collaboration between Winch Design and Italian design studio, Zuccon International Project, Cloud 9 is the 74m yacht with a palatial interior. With impressive leisure and entertainment facilities, Cloud 9 is the ideal charter yacht for socialising and entertaining with family and friends.
For ultimate on board comfort, this custom displacement yacht features ‘at anchor stabilisers’ which work at zero speed, increasing passenger comfort at anchor as well as on rough waters.
Timeless styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating feature throughout to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. A contemporary beach theme can be seen throughout the interior, which totals in excess of 1000 square metres.
Featuring a subtle off white hull and white superstructure with grey accents, Areti is an 85m yacht designed inside and out by Winch Design. The interior has a traditional feel with an American classic twist. The luxurious yacht has a pair of dramatic staircases which lead down from the aft deck to the large swim platform, with a cut-out section in the bow which hints at a foredeck tender garage beneath the fully-certified helipad.
Several outdoor relaxation areas are on offer but one of the most important is the private space ahead of the owner’s suite which is fitted with a Jacuzzi and spacious sunbed with breakfast table. This is one of a number of private deck spaces for the owners and guests to enjoy the yacht without intrusion.
The spa includes a hot tub, full depth plunge pool and relaxation area, and connects to a large swim platform at the transom for the full ocean experience.
Translating to ‘Father Beyond’, Plvs Vltra was created as a full-time residence, not a holiday destination. This information from the clients informed every aspect of the design, with Winch Design splitting Plvs Vltra’s accommodation into an Owner’s Deck, two VIPS on the main deck and three guest cabins on the lower deck so that three generations can have their own space or come together as desired.
The fully custom interior is a representation of the owner’s style and can be appreciated while walking through the yacht, taking in all the different colour schemes, materials and surface elements. To make this particular style yacht-friendly with its delicate touches and finishings, Winch Design worked with Amels to install a multitude of artworks including crystal chandeliers in the Main Saloon. Tiny metal pins keep these flamboyant pieces from flying across the room when the elements outside become unpredictable.
The 6.5 metre swimming pool on the main aft deck is 1.2 metres deep and comes with its own current simulator that slows guests to enjoy a few morning laps before breakfast. The remainder of the aft deck covers 180 square metres and is filled with luxurious furniture pieces and a large lounging centrepiece.
The inspiration from the Côte d’ Azur can be seen as you walk through the cool and calm interior, and the Lower Deck incorporates a spectacular central spa pool, massage area, steam room, bar and sauna with a fold-down balcony to starboard.
New Secret is a triumph of contemporary interior architecture and design. Beneath the surface, there is a depth and richness to the design, with detailed natural rhythms and forms.
Throughout the yacht floors are variable-width oak with variable tones and finely polished agate slices beautifully complement the soft, sculptural surfaces found throughout the interior. Although highly detailed, the purity of material choice, and very high attention paid to the coordination of the materials, tones and finishes provides a soothing natural harmony.
New Secret’s interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 cabins. Boasting large outdoor areas located at the aft, there is also a large swimming pool located on the main deck, while a superyacht helipad is aft on the bridge deck.
With an exterior and interior designed by Winch Design, and built by Lürssen shipyard, Ace possesses the same calm, tranquil, beauty of the Mediterranean waters that her owner loves to cruise.
The exterior design is distinctive in its sweeping forms, curves, the smooth oval balconies and large side-arches. Traditional meets contemporary in the interior design scheme, which is executed in sparkling white with splashes of blue, cream and silver.
Service is exceptionally well integrated on board ACE, with space for 28 crew, ten guests and plenty of amenities from helicopter landing facilities to a gym, beach club, swimming platform, saunas, Hammam and huge Roman-style Jacuzzi.
