Destry Darr Designs creates a modern interior for a traditional trawler yacht

Destry Darr Designs, an established firm specialising in custom yacht interior design is currently designing a contemporary interior for the 86’ Outer Reef trawler style vessel, “Ti-Punch”.

The company’s client has requested a more modern interior design and layout that would suit their lifestyle while maintaining the traditional exterior of the trawler style vessel. They demanded a boat that offered everything they would require to navigate oceans comfortably and safely but with flair.

Destry Darr Designs explained, “From the moment we met our clients, they challenged us to do something different.  From the aft deck, a large stainless steel framed glass door will lead into the main salon which will be surrounded by high gloss walnut set beneath a custom designed overhead soffit of walnut and high gloss laminate.

“The cabinet doors and window mullions will be detailed with a horizontal and vertical grain pattern while the bar is detailed with strips of ribbed aluminium.  There will be a sofa on the starboard side opposite a large L-shaped sofa on the port side.  The owner is investing in quality ceiling light fixtures and sconces which, will add to the contemporary look and value of the boat.”

In the galley there is a high-low wall which divides the galley from the pilot house.  This wall will feature a decorative wave pattern in a metal like finish and the galley cabinets will be done in a contemporary gloss finish acrylic laminate.

The full beam master suite is a stylish environment designed for luxury.  This suite features high gloss beech with walnut accents, a sitting area and walk-in closet.  The master en-suite head has a double sink, contemporary high gloss laminate cabinetry with stone floors and counter tops.

Destry Darr Designs added, “Our recent trip to the factory to check on the progress of the construction and select stone slabs was very successful.

“Our client’s 86’ Outer Reef “Ti Punch” will offer them a practical seaworthy vessel complimented by an interior with style, comfort, and amenities.”
