German Frers 57'

Shearwater, a stunning 57 foot carbon electric propulsion high-performance cruiser was launched in Sydney recently after a three-year build.   The key structural elements of this extreme-performance yacht, including the ability to be sailed single-handed, were blended with a soft palette of luxurious and natural interior finishings. This included the pairing of natural teak flooring with rich, walnut cabinetry and matte-finished carbon features.

S/Y Encore

A modern update on a classic Ralph Lauren inspired gentleman’s yacht club. For this project it was very important to the owner’s that all of the styling and materials throughout both the interior and exterior of the yacht were considered in unison. Working closely with Guillermo Martinez at Ralph Lauren in New York, all of the furniture and mirrors throughout the ensuites were customised especially to suit the proportions of the yachts interior.

M5 (Ex Mirabella V)

Kit Carlier Design was directly engaged to undertake the interior design refit work on the M5 (Ex Mirabella V) super yacht – the largest single masted yacht ever built.
