Her towering flared bow, gently sweeping curved lines and perfectly balanced proportions conceal an interior that the Vripack designers refer to as ‘utterly uncompromising’. At first glance, the interior appears merely modest and uncluttered, with a pleasant combination of soft glossy with surfaces and pale tones. The deliberate avoidance of the usual design-related excesses is evident across the entire yacht. Cabinets eschew the usual multi radii, cared or metal embossed edges, ending instead in clean-lined, softly rounded and uniformly precise 3-millimetre gaps around every door and panel and cast the subtlest of shadows. The precision of these lines is such shat the tiniest deviation would catch the eye and ruin the atmosphere of poise and purity.
To avoid the coldness that sometimes undermines minimalism, white wooden surfaces are counterpointed with softly tactile fabric-covered doors and calfskin-clad furniture. The dominant pale tones are counterbalanced by a dark brown suede wall in the main salon. This wall is the unexpected element that balances the whole composition to render the interior calm.
The yacht showcases of Vripack’s ability to design beautifully understated spaces. The use of natural light was always evident, but the grace with which they employ it has become more and more refined. The ultimate goal remains the same, however: an yacht that makes its owners feel at home, whether cruising a long with the cool winds of the Nordic fjords or luxuriating in the warm breeze of the Fiji islands.
