Darnet Design has unveiled the interior created for the VSY 64 Project 003 currently under construction in Italy and due for delivery in 2018.



This project is the third in a series with a timeless design by Espen Oeino. The yacht’s interior arrangement features six suites including a panoramic owner’s suite on a raised aft-deck forward with fixed exterior/interior terraces, a gym on the bridge deck, and a full-fledged professional diving centre for all 12 guests on the lower deck. The sky-lounge offers an unobstructed view aft thanks to minimal structural design. The sundeck accommodates a children’s lounge, a large infinity pool and bar area aft and
a fire pit forward.

The owners’ interior design brief focused on a spirit of coziness and comfort rather than ostentation, with a timeless, elegant style best defined as “warm contemporary”. The materials chosen combine quarter sawn light walnut wood in the yacht’s main living spaces, a variety of textured leather panels, honed marble and high-gloss elm wood,
highlighted with stainless steel inserts in a brushed nickel finish.



A recurring theme throughout the yacht is derived from the owner’s passion for the undersea world: raised decorative panels and wood-floor metal inserts find their inspiration in the world of coral reefs.

It is with great excitement that we undertake this project, the culmination of many years devoted to “the Art of Space at Sea” as we like to refer to our craft. Over the last twenty years, we have designed countless sailing yacht interiors in collaboration with international builders of both custom and production yachts, as well as interiors for two superyachts, the 45m sister ships “Africa” and “Atomic”. This time, we face the rewarding challenge of fulfilling the owners’ vision over nearly 500 m2 of interior space and taking the outcome around the world. I am quite pleased to collaborate on this project with Viareggio SuperYachts, a builder dedicated to the pursuit of excellence
Franck Darnet, founder of Darnet Design



With delivery scheduled in less than 24 months, Project VSY 003 integrates advanced technical solutions and enhanced engineering such as a dynamic positioning system with diesel-electric stern thruster. A Kongsberg integrated control system will provide integration of navigation, propulsion control and ship automation functionality. 

During the latest Monaco Yacht Show VSY presented its brand-new 83-metre project. This 2,650 GRT project, length 83 metres, max beam 15.60 metres, proposes and reinterprets the stylistic features of the award-winning younger sistership, Stella Maris, with various hints at the modern explorers.

Casper Marelis unveils project Equal
Casper Marelis, one of the three finalists in Boat International Media’s “Young Designer of the Year Awards", has introduced project Equal. The design of MY Equal is based on the owners request of having a yacht with two equally looking tenders. The tenders should complement the exterior styling of the yacht so that’s where Marelis started this design task. The result is a low profile 80 metre yacht with dedicated decks for (water) sports, parties, relaxing and an evening around the fireplace. The owner will be able to get to this luxury with a limousine tender and board in comfort and safety due to the easy access boarding system. The second sporty general tender can be used for fishing and day long exploring. All bring their equal shares to the owners yachting experience.Earlier the concepts of Harun Kemali, Dani Santa, Alexander Fogg and Ricardo Pilguj were presented.
