Project Nova by Heesen Yachts featuring interior styling by Cristiano Gatto


Heesen Yachts’ project Nova, sold in June 2016, will have her interior styled by Italian designer Cristiano Gatto.
The layout of this superyacht offer wide interior spaces and can accommodate up to 12 guests across six cabins, including a full beam owner’s suite on the main deck.
The brief for the interior styling was ‘to provide a relaxed and welcoming beach club ambiance with ample connection to the outside environment.’ Elements such as floor-to-ceiling windows match with the original brief, while the interior designer made several modifications to satisfy the owner’s wishes.
“The owner asked us to modify the colour scheme, design details and overall decoration to give the interior a contemporary, almost minimalist design,” commented the designer, who has been collaborating closely with the owner to perfectly match the styling of the yacht with the owner’s identity and wishes.
“We stepped in when the outfitting works were in 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 the fabrics, leather and lacquered surfaces and the warm hues of woods creates a sophisticated ambiance in all the rooms, bathrooms included.”
Throughout the yacht, hints of colour can be found in deep red and burgundy decorative items in addition to the two-tone base palette. “The burgundy decorative items, cushions and throws in both the exterior and interior areas are designed to catch the eye and juice things up,” comments Gatto.
Project Nova is scheduled to be launched on April 14th, 2017 from Heesen’s facilities in Oss.
