Gremat Yacht – Cannes, France
Bowman Riley designed the interiors of a private motor yacht, the Gremat moored in Cannes on the French Riviera.
The Gremat is a 27-metre luxury vessel with sophisticated exterior design and engineering by Paolo Caliari. Gremat’s interior layout sleeps up to seven guests in three bedrooms and is capable of carrying three crew on board.
Built in 1999 and last refitted in 2017, the yacht needed an interior refresh to update the style for use by the owner as a private yacht and as a charter yacht. Our aim was to create a modern stylish aesthetic to suit the needs of the yacht owner and to create a relaxed luxury experience for guests with contemporary styling, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous seating.
We provided concept ideas for the interior space, exploring various options and layouts for both the upper deck and galley for discussion with the yacht owner. The designs were developed alongside our client and a final set of visuals accompany the specification for the soft furnishing and decorative accents to enable the Gremat captain and project manager to implement the designs on-site in France.
A key driver was to maximise the Gremat’s leisure and entertainment facilities to enhance her appeal as a charter yacht for socialising and entertaining. The galley was reconfigured to offer greater flexibility as the main entertaining space for parties and larger groups to gather.
To create an elegant and contemporary interior, our proposals included lightening the dated mahogany timber to soften the overall interior. This is achieved by wrapping the cabinetry, work surfaces and carcass details, completely transforming the space.
New upholstery fabrics were selected to bring texture whilst ensuring suitability for marine use and commercial entertaining. Contrast piping details compliment the wrapping finishes and bring the scheme together. In addition to this, we selected decorative cushions with a bespoke trim detail to the interior seating and bathing areas to add colour and texture.
