Apostrophe – 2013
Apostrophe offers a full-beam master suite on the main deck plus superior accommodation for eight guests in four double cabins on the lower deck. The key woods onboard Apostrophe are stained brown walnut and ebonised makassar, and the balance between this dark joinery and the soft colours used elsewhere produce a modern and homely feel.
This is further reinforced by a fabulous selection of specially commissioned artworks, sculptures and lamps, plus a wealth of materials & fabrics, and custom carpeting with all kinds of weaves and patterns. There is also an extravagant use of leather with exquisitely detailed stitching.
Its use encapsulates the approach taken by the interior designers. While Apostrophe is heavily influenced by Art Deco as a theme, they have deployed a fine, scaled-down form that reflects the length of the yacht and ensures it does not become overwhelming. The designers have clearly got the proportions right with lots of wonderful details that give Apostrophe a personality all of her own. The marquetry is very subtle throughout and even included in the texture of the wood.
A unique mother-of-pearl droplet design comes back in the beds, doors, mirrors, panels and many other places.
