Come Together and Prevail nominated in the 2023 ISS Awards
We are delighted that both 60m motor yacht Come Together and 27m sailing yacht Prevail have been nominated in the 2023 International Superyacht Society (ISS) Awards. The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 26th October during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Delivered in 2022, Come Together is the first Limited Editions yacht in the Amels 60m series. She features an interior by Winch Design and an exterior penned by Espen Oeino. Designed primarily as a boat for entertaining and relaxing with family and friends, the contemporary, beachy, tactile interior instantly evokes a peaceful sense of calm and serenity, perfectly capturing the essence of a family home on the water. The relaxed and natural interior theme, with a subtle masculine edge blends perfectly with the yacht’s more angular and geometric exterior.
The pure and natural materials and warm, earthy colour palette have been used to emphasise the relaxed ‘home at the beach’ spirit of the interior. However, the beauty of many of the materials is largely in their tactility. They are not overpowering but have a surface quality that draws you in and creates a physical connection with the interior. For example, the double-height hand-carved timber wall panels that extend behind the staircase, the use of natural coconut shell in the cabinetry, hair-on-hide leathers in the master suite and the choice of brushed timbers and leathered stone surfaces all hold an intrinsic invitation to be touched and create unique, tactile finishes throughout the superyacht.
There is a strong sense of connectivity throughout the interior, not just in the choice of materials but in the architectural elements too. Creating the backbone of the entry area and spiralling through the centre of the boat, the central helix column of the staircase connects the decks. Inspired by traditional Japanese joinery techniques, each individual, hand-made section of the twisting column is unique and joined without glue.
Forward of the main salon and stair lobby, the vast, full-beam Owners’ suite features a folding balcony on the starboard side, providing a natural transition from the exterior to the interior of the yacht, creating a private terrace and flooding the space with natural light from the almost full-height windows. Again, the asymmetrical, geometric design of the furniture nods towards the unique exterior forms and the use of textural and natural surfaces, combined with brushed bronze metals and beautifully selected stones create a refined and comfortable space.
Marking the third collaboration between Winch Design and Tripp Design, 90ft sailing yacht Prevail features a spacious and comfortable interior with an open plan layout and an abundance of natural light. Stylistic inspirations come from the East coast of the USA and mid-century Scandinavian influences are peppered throughout with a combination of soft leathers and luxurious timbers, giving the ambience a restrained and sophisticated elegance.
The Winch Design team worked closely with the owner to create a timeless and stylish interior, whilst maintaining the practicalities needed to enable blue water sailing. The vessel features many intricate details and hints to the exterior, such as naked carbon, combined with stainless steel and leather. The layout consists of a generous Owner’s cabin with full beam bathroom, featuring luxurious fittings and feature stones. Adjacent to the Master Cabin, the Owner requested a study area which functions as a working and reading area. Furthermore, the interior boasts a twin cabin and double cabin, both with their own colour palettes.
The team spent a huge amount of time finding the right material palette, to ensure the harmonious blend of finishes. The Owner selected a beautifully flamed Anigre which was stained to achieve the right contrast with the oak floor as well as stand-out accent timbers such as Macassar, Walnut, and feature panels in Rosewood. The in-house interior team at Y-Yachts translated this into a beautiful selection of final veneers and stones from the best suppliers in Europe. All of these materials have been carefully engineered to achieve a lightweight interior, enabling efficient sailing performance.
