Aqualuxe Outfitting interior designer Cris Clifford, her assistant Jayne McManus and Alene Keenan, the Yacht Stew Guru, author of The Yacht Guru’s Bible and Interior course instructor at Maritime Professional Training were accompanied by our honored guest, Julie Perry, author of "The Insider's Guide to Becoming a Yacht Stewardess" this year. The judging categories were based on creativity, aesthetic & overall design impact.
We started at the north docks on M/Y Lady Leila showcasing elegant simplicity as their style. Just a few steps away, Kirsty, Chelsea & Nicole from M/Y Carpe Diem II, created a sophisticated Marilyn Monroe affair. Glittering gold & black place cards, deep red carnations and a beautiful white orchid centered on a mirror radiated luxury. On the top deck their “Coconut Pink Lady” cocktail served in pineapples with dragon fruit garnish was awesome!! The outdoor setting was a tropical paradise, with greenery, coconuts, neon flamingos, pineapples and different elevations of colorful flowers offset by wicker chargers and a white bird of paradise napkin fold.
M/Y Excellence’s “Italian Wine Night” entry consisted of luxe candelabras nestled among dozens of wine corks, rustic burlap ribbon, terrariums, & wooden wine boxes, along with some of the best wines in the world. A perfectly folded double flower napkin fold created a pop of color and texture. On the second deck Simone & Pumba, their 2 blue fish mascots take center stage next to a gold and silver decorated top by Gwen, Georgia, Charlotte, Maddie & Madison for a "Chic St.Tropez setting".
M/Y Quite Essential’s delicious “Pacific Blue”, sangria perfectly complemented their nautical centerpiece complete with a blue and white light house, sailboat, starfish and candlelight along with perfectly pressed navy napkins surrounding a lovely white and green floral arrangement. This gorgeous vessel featured many rare and elegant interior details.
“Spring has Sprung” on M/Y Nomadess, their refreshing gin & tonic cocktail infused with cucumber and blueberries featured a rose garnish to harmonize with their decor. For the interior, Tenielle & Kristen added delicate fresh tulips....
