172' Benetti Yacht Refit Lady B
This 172′ Benetti was purchased by repeat clients (see the 142′ Christensen Lady Bee) who plan to keep much of the look of the original Art Deco interior. Although we will have a lot of big changes and repairs, we won’t be changing much of the Art Deco look and style.
Main and Dining Salon
There will be quite a lot of change to the main entry, where we are taking out the entire bar – a beautiful grand piano will reside in this space instead – and redesigning the outboard wall. The owners also prefer to have a more formal, separated dining space so we are re-building the wall, TV cabinet and doors that originally separated this space which was removed by the previous owner. We will also be changing all of the yellow lighting to a new whiter LED lighting throughout this space, refinishing the areas of damaged and milky wood, repairing and repainting the metallic and silver leaf accents, replacing the leather Turnstyle Designs leather hardware, and of course changing out soft goods.
Remodeling of the Master Head is well underway which includes the addition of a second toilet room and redesigned makeup vanity, new wall hung toilets, removal of the existing shower steam unit with re-design of the shower, and of course, the owners favorite, select white onyx. We just completed our selections of 10 white onyx slabs, and only the most perfect slabs were chosen!
Meanwhile in the Studio...
We are busy having design team meetings, creating drawings, making selections, and preparing presentations and packages!
