There are numerous luxury yacht builders, designers, naval architects, interior designers, lighting designers, various product suppliers and service supplies in the industry specialising in luxury yachts, offering the highest possible standard of their services and assistance to future owners and managers of these vessels. View more on yacht builders and designers here.

Some owners prefer to keep their privacy and use their yachts for private holidays with family, friends, business partners and colleagues. Others, offer their vessels for luxury yacht charter around various destinations in the world. Two of the most important destinations from yacht rental point of view are the Mediterranean (mainly in the summer) and the Caribbean (during the Northern Hemisphere’s winter months). Other important luxury yacht charter destinations include the South Pacific, Asia, Northern Europe, with remote destinations such as Antarctica and Pacific North West being increasingly sought-after by adventure-seeking yacht charter clients.

Luxury yachts offer deluxe and luxurious accommodation in cabins, with en suite bathrooms, the finest in furnishing and linens, latest in technology, air-conditioning and various other comforts expected of these boats. There is usually one or more saloons available for entertainment, socialising and relaxation, as well as numerous dining options, including al fresco dining possibilities.

Not many have seen close up shots of motor yacht A, neither know the exact details of her interior design.

The interior design of Ruya was developed by Bannenberg & Rowell, who emphasised the yacht’s sporty looks. The designers created stunning decor which resembles progress and energy, thanks to the lavish fabrics, textiles and graphics.  Heesen Yacht Interiors carried out incredible work outfitting the yacht.

Sleek exterior lines and sport looks of GT 67 will be combined with timeless interior design. The superyacht will feature a large number of floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows in the main living areas. One of the unique characteristics will be the scenic transom with a pool and distinctive U-shape on the stern made out of transparent glass. The infinity pool is sure to become another incredible feature of GT 67.

“We revised the typical features that distinguish ISA Yachts with an even stronger appeal”, says Enrico Gobbi of Team Fro Design, “such as the grand arch connecting the aft cockpit to the superstructure, enriched by the air intake detail worthy of a sports car.”

Motor yacht GT 67 will have a helipad and “glass house” on the fly deck with an 180-degrees panoramic view to make sure these special features provide an outstanding cruising experience.

Lavish accommodation will be provided for a total of 12 guests in the following cabin configuration: a full-beam master suite, a VIP cabin and four guest cabins.
