49.8m Project Nova’s renderings were first revealed at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show. An all-aluminium vessel, she is the world’s first fast-displacement superyacht to also feature hybrid propulsion. She was originally sold in June 2016 and her owner is described by Heesen as a “yacht enthusiast”, who was attracted to her “dynamic exterior design” and “impressive performance.”
Gatto has worked closely with the owner’s team to develop the interiors for Project Nova. He said, “The owner asked us to modify the colour scheme, design details and overall decoration to give the interior a contemporary, almost minimalist design.
“We stepped in when the outfitting works were at an advanced stage, so we had to work with the existing structures. A two-tone palette has been chosen to give the interiors a bright and relaxing feel. The contrast between the pure white of fabrics, leather and lacquered surfaces and the warm hues of woods, create a sophisticated ambience in all the rooms.
“Hints of colour brighten the scheme with deep red or burgundy decorative items, cushions and throws in both the exterior and interior areas to catch the eye and juice things up. The linearity of design is enriched by geometrical patterns, precious materials and meticulously designed details.”
Project Nova is due to be launched on 14th April 2017 at Heesen’s shipyard in Oss.
