112' Westport Yacht Refit Symphony
The owners of the 112′ Westport Symphony are experienced in creating beautiful spaces, so working with them on this extensive refit has been a real pleasure! The progress continues as we have removed the headliners in all of the main spaces in preparation for the all-new LED lighting installation. We decided at the onset of the project to preserve much of the yacht’s original sapele wood but still elevate the overall look to the contemporary feeling the owners are looking for. Every day we are finding new ways to give her a more contemporary look – the wood is being painted in some places, removed or covered in others, and preserved in still others so as to complement the refined color palette of blacks, whites and soft golds for a casually elegant atmosphere. Stay tuned as this exciting project comes together in the final stages!
We’ve removed the old dated oval wooden center ceiling soffits, curved outboard ceiling soffits and curved cabinetry below, yellowed headliner. and will have a completely new designed ceiling with new lighting and speakers. We are also redesigning the main salon aft bar cabinet and adding a side sink cabinet. After removing the wood centers of the mullions throughout the entire main deck, the mullions will have inserts of white large-scale shagreen leather complemented by countertops of white Silestone Quartz with soft gold veining. We decided to take the small day head to the next level and add a dramatic impact with high gloss black paint. And the stairs going to the Pilot House and Lower Deck are being elevated with Sapele risers.
We are removing the wall wainscot in the master stateroom and creating a new vanity with a lighted mirror. The master heads will have all new stonework, new wallcovering, new painted headliner panels, new lights and new speakers. The new headliner panels are being fabricated, w just recently placed the lights and speakers and we are preparing to begin our stone installation.
We are fabricating beautiful headboard panels for the staterooms, including this one for the VIP which is still at the carpenter’s shop and preparing to go into upholstery, and we are painting the guest showers white.
Removal of the old headliner material is underway and installation of insulation for heat control will soon begin. The Pilot House will emulate a Bentley interior with black and red quilted leathers and contrast stitching and the table top will have a black Cambria Quartz with gold flecks. These eye-catching details are sure to be striking!
The yacht’s new name boards have been installed and we will be making a lot of changes to the flybridge, such as relocating the helm chairs, modifying the shape and size of the built-in fiberglass settee, and adding new Hi/Lo sliding tables and enclosure and to this area. Other updates will include teak work and a new awning for the aft deck.
