When we talk about luxury yachts, our attention naturally turns to their cutting-edge equipment and spectacular decoration. These exceptional ships are much more than just means of cruising. And their aura of timeless elegance reigns supreme.
Designed to offer an unforgettable experience, yachts must be a true immersion in luxury. Let’s see how lighting plays an essential role in transforming these ships into real floating jewels.
Lighting in today’s yachts
When you step aboard a yacht, the experience is often breathtaking. The symbiosis between luxury, design and technology creates an enchanting ambiance. Every nook and cranny of a yacht is meticulously designed to meet the high expectations of owners and their guests.
Yacht designers and decorators know very well the importance of lighting in creating unique atmospheres on board. The living, relaxation and entertainment areas are then equipped with strategically placed lighting to highlight the boat’s architectural features, on-board spaces, high-end materials, or even works of art.
The pendant lights, wall lights, floor lamps and table lamps are carefully selected. Ceiling lights illuminate common areas with elegance. While the bedside lamps bring a warm touch to the cabins.
Multiplying different light sources is the key to achieving the perfect brightness. Well-designed, luxurious and durable lighting, harmonized with the interior decoration, then becomes an essential element of the experience on board these exceptional ships.
Moreover, yacht decorators and designers are on the lookout for timeless trends in this field. They are looking for partners capable of creating luxurious lighting fixtures that integrate harmoniously into each project.
