144′ Heesen Yacht Refit Castlefinn

144' Heesen Yacht Refit Castlefinn

This was a quick decor refit for owners who purchased the boat sight unseen! We focused on the main areas of the boat – the main salon, skylounge, master stateroom, crew areas and all of the exterior deck areas. We did all new carpeting, fabrics and upholstery throughout.

Main Salon

The original interior had a strong Western motif, so we faced a bit of a challenge with items such as the custom drum shades over the dining table that were installed to be somewhat permanent, but we located a custom shade manufacturer who could make new drum shades for us. Some of the furnishings had very high end orange-toned Italian leatherwork in certain areas such as the chair backs and legs, forward bulkhead and cabinet details. We didn’t want to change the furniture completely due to lead times and costs involved. Nor did we want to reupholster these leather frames, so we decided to work with them and brought a bit of the orange tone in with  complementary materials and colors. Stay tuned for our final delivery of all of the accents that tie everything together in the coming weeks! 

Main Foyer

Although the carpet throughout was in good condition, it was necessary to change the very specific foyer carpet designed with a Greek key pattern and the previous owner’s initials. We were not changing the carpet in the entire main salon, however, so this gave us the opportunity to do something different at the entry that we wouldn’t necessarily do throughout the entire salon.


In the skylounge we built an extra large curved sectional with another storage ottoman so the owners could enjoy movie night – a very special request. We also changed the carpet to eliminate more Greek key patterns.


Plenty of exterior deck areas means plenty of new exterior upholstery, cushions and pillows!
