Each superyacht is unique and reflects the individual tastes and style of the owner, and nowhere on board is this more evident than the yacht’s interior. From chic minimal spaces to opulent velvet accents, here are five superyacht designs to inspire you.
Delivered by the Italian shipyard CRN in 2017, 74m (243ft) CLOUD 9 is the epitome of casual elegance, designed by the renowned studio Winch Design. The yacht interior encapsulates the owner’s desire to create a yacht styled like an elegant beach house. The main salon’s color palette of white and navy blue with gold accents is illuminated by warm lighting and feels refined yet comfortable. The bleached oak throughout is a contemporary twist on the traditional mahogany often found on board yachts, which perfectly complements the coastal feel.

The casual, beach-style is clearly luxurious but also welcoming, with plush soft furnishings and communal spaces to encourage guests to socialize with one another. Undoubtedly one of the most striking features of CLOUD 9 is the main formal dining area that is enclosed by glass doors. The large wooden table can even be expanded to cater to more guests but retains the feel of a family home.
The unique ‘cocoon-like’ interior on board 37m (126ft) KOJU was designed by Lazzarini Pickering Architetti for Benetti. Inspired by the shipyard’s classic Motopanfilo yachts, the curves and softened edges of this interior are a modern interpretation of vessels from the 1960s. KOJU’s retro aesthetic still maintains a contemporary feel with neutral colors and soft linens, and the interior design would look perfectly at home in a James Bond film.
The beautiful 106m (348ft) AMADEA was delivered by Lürssen in 2017, with an interior design created by François Zuretti. An opulent yacht interior with rich woods and intricate details, the owner’s aim was to create an ‘authentic classic’ design inspired by 18th century tastes.
- The formal dining spaces on board are reminiscent of an elegant palace or country estate and the design of AMADEA’s top deck has the feeling of a Victorian orangery, with a glass ceiling, long dining table and green foliage climbing the walls.
- The lush main salon has a striking double-height atrium, rich red velvet accents, and a hand-painted cloud mural on the ceiling.
- AMADEA has a spectacularly grand interior to inspire bold design choices.

For the ultimate minimal design, 55m (180ft) LAURENTIA, delivered by Heesen in 2017, offers her guests a serene Scandinavian-inspired experience. A finalist at the 2018 World Superyacht Awards, her yacht interior is the work of RADYCA studio. Elegantly minimal, LAURENTIA’s interior spaces are welcoming and comfortable. The cream color palette, with leather accents, suede panels and light wooden tones creates an ambiance of calm, while her large windows allow natural light to flood in throughout the day.
MARY JEAN II
Private collections of artworks often adorn the walls of superyachts, but the yacht interior of 61.7m (202ft) MARY JEAN II is completely inspired by her owner’s love of contemporary artists. Designed by Mark Berryman and built by ISA Yachts, the simplistic main salon allows the artworks to steal the show. Modern artists such as Peter Blake, Andy Warhol and Ron Lichtenstein are proudly displayed and perfectly illuminated in the communal areas as part of the yacht’s collection. By scaling back the opulence of the furniture and colors in each room, this yacht’s interior design allows the paintings to take center stage.
