Luxury yacht manufacturer, Glider Yachts Limited, has announced that British motor racing and renowned luxury car seating market leader, Corbeau Seats Ltd will become the company’s exclusive sports seating and interior finishes partner.
Globally renowned as the ‘seat of choice’ for luxury cars and motorsport enthusiasts, Corbeau was selected to design bespoke interior sports seating and cockpit detailing for Glider Yachts’ first yacht, the SS18, enabling passengers to travel safely in comfort and style.
The SS18 is currently in build, and will be ready for launch at the Monaco Yacht Show next month, held from 23rd to 26th September. During the show, exclusively invited visitors will be able to experience Corbeau’s luxury detailing in the vessel.
Robert McCall, managing director of Glider Yachts, said, “Glider Yachts’ mission is to become the world’s leading supplier of high-performance, luxury superyachts. We are absolutely committed to providing our clients with the best of the best in quality, style and performance. The specially designed seating and interior will be hand crafted specifically for Glider Yachts by Corbeau.
“Our clients can work with the team, and our exclusive seating partner, in order to create a bespoke seating and cockpit design of their choosing, so they can ensure their sports yacht’s interior complements their own individual style.”
The SS18 luxury sports seats will subtly incorporate Glider Yachts’ ‘Atlantic Blue’ colouring in soft leather for the seat outers, with light blue quilted alcantara inners. The leather cockpit lining will be fully coordinated with the seating in pale blue, with a touch of grey to contrast the alcantara fabric.
According to Glider Yachts, the SS18 sports seats will give owners the ultimate in comfort and safety. The sports seats feature a moulded foam cushion, bolster and a lumber support to give passenger’s comfort, as well as ensuring no lateral support is lost. The seats are also fitted with a single reclining and tilting mechanism for individual comfort and ease of adjustment.
Vic Lee, managing director of Corbeau Seats, commented, “As THE original British manufacturer of luxury car sports seating, we are incredibly excited to be selected as the exclusive seating partner for Glider Yachts’ debut sports yacht. We provide the ultimate in comfort, safety and style and can customise a design according to each client’s taste and style.”
