The highly anticipated Baltic Yachts 53m/175ft superyacht PINK GIN VI has made her public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show and while onlookers can admire her gloss silver hull designed by Judel/Vrolijk & Co., there is now the opportunity to see her stunning interior layout.
Design Unlimited drew on their comprehensive experience in the luxury yacht industry to incorporate the interiors around a range of innovative features, including topside openings and folding bulwarks that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces – all available to the owner at the touch of a button.
Once closed, the doors become a part of the load bearing structure and for the safety of all persons on board, finite element analysis was used to ensure DNV-GL class approved engineering for the openings.
Combining earthy tones with plush accents in purple, the stately colour scheme effortlessly combines the detailing and flows perfectly from one living space to another.
Design Unlimited founder Mark Tucker described the thinking behind each interior space:
“When we began work on the interior design and exterior styling we started with a blank sheet of paper. The 175-foot yacht evolved as we drew on inspiration from fashion, art and music.
“The ‘button’ handles on the bathroom lockers were inspired by men’s fashion and the work of emerging artists such as Marcin Rusak, who encapsulated petals in resin to form Pink Gin’s incredible saloon table, have helped create a unique design.
“The idea for the piano in the saloon was inspired by happy memories of enjoying a sun-downer in Porto Cervo while listening to the resident pianist.
“Throughout the yacht, surface finishes and textures play an important role with carefully selected materials used in unusual ways to create a tactile look. An eclectic mixture of stained oak joinery, metallic finishes and sumptuous velvets and leathers create a warm, inclusive ambience, despite the yacht’s size.
“Attention to detail is evident in everything from the velvet-lined drawers, bespoke carpet and monogrammed clothes hangers, to the subtle differences in each of the bathrooms with their sand-cast, hand-finished hardware. Everywhere one looks, a new detail is certain to catch the eye.
“The large cockpit has been split into three areas; a dining and bar space, illuminated by two boom-mounted chandeliers, which is directly connected to the galley; the helm positions and navigation desk, and the third area, with comfortable seating, set aft.
“Pink Gin is an elaborate mix of styles and influences, brought together by the designers, the project team, the crew, the craftsmen at Baltic Yachts, the artisans and suppliers from around the world, and most importantly, the passion and input of her owner.”
