This was a two-stage job.


The first stage involved the cockpit and sun lounge upholstery.

The owner wanted to modernise the look of the outdoor upholstery, which was the factory original with very round shapes and a two tone colour scheme.

To realise this, we focused on two main changes:  colour and shape.

The owner selected grey and lime as the new palette.  It was an audacious choice, but it worked perfectly. We then shaped the foam to get more defined edges and cleaner lines, thereby creating a minimalistic and very contemporary design.


The second stage involved the interior linings.

There was extensive mould and widespread delamination of the ceilings and walls along the hull. The interiors were looking tired, saggy and worn-out.  This is not unusual for a 15-year old boat, but a makeover was urgently needed.

Probably the biggest challenge was the preparation.  Part of the inbuilt furniture, along with doors, portholes, lights and electronics had to be removed; as did the old vinyl from the walls and ceiling panels.  Further cleaning of surfaces from mould, old glue, vinyl and foam was also necessary. It was an extensive, invasive, and very time consuming job.

The results, however, speak for themselves!
