When the owner of Turquoise bought the 2011 yacht in December last year, the interior was, as Jonny Horsfield of H2 Yacht Design puts it, “In good nick, it was just extremely plain. It had chartered, but the comments had always been that the interior was a bit ordinary.” Indeed Turquoise had the bones of a great charter yacht.

The decision, then, was what to paint on this blank canvas. “My wife and I knew what we wanted from the off,” says the owner. “Seven star service with a warm and luxurious interior that would work for families as well. Timeless elegance so that the yacht would not date overnight.”
