Designing for Fun; Designing for Adventure

Capture Your Spirit of Adventure...

Why are we drawn to the water? Why do we buy the boat? Why do we long to explore? To anyone in the yachting world, yachting is about exponentially more than just “status”. The yacht represents the ability to enjoy life with our family and friends, to travel, to carve out adventure, to soak in everything that makes life special. It’s ingrained in the human spirit – perhaps a Quixote-esque desire to seek new experiences, to challenge monotony, to dream the impossible dream. To be tethered to the shore – any shore – simply does not suit.

The Wow Factor...

To seek adventure also means to have fun! So, when the owners of one of our whimsically luxurious design projects – the 142’ Christensen Lady Bee – called me, I knew their request would be exciting and it is. We’ve just begun the design of a “wow factor” wine wall between the main salon and dining salon. And, to add an extra element of excitement, we will be designing, fabricating and installing the unit before their next trip…in four weeks! Stay tuned for more.
