Cristiano Gatto appointed as interior stylist for Project Nova


The owner of Hessen Yachts’ Project Nova (YN 17850) has appointed Italian interior stylist Cristiano Gatto.

Project Nova was sold in June 2016 and is the world’s first fast displacement with hybrid propulsion.

“The owner asked us to modify colour scheme, design details and overall decoration to give the interior a contemporary, almost minimalist design,” comments Gatto.”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, bathrooms included. 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.”

The launch is scheduled on April 14, 2017 at the Hessen shipyard in Oss.
