Design Practice Location:
Keyla is a 45.3 metres motor yacht built by Trinity Yachts, with an aluminium semi- displacement hull and superstructure, and two MTU/DDC 16V2000 engines, 3,600HP (2,685 kW). RMK Marine (Superyacht builder based in Turkey) and the Hot Lab – Yacht&Design studio in Milan (Italy) worked together to refit the yacht after a series of inputs from the Owner and his family, who are enthusiasts of photography, art and fossil collecting.
After devising various solutions, the Owner decided on a major refit. Revamping the interior for the new owner’s lifestyle and needs meant that substantial stylistic changes has been introduced as well as several technical updates involving equipment.
The materials and colours of the interiors reflect the style of the exteriors with the extensive use of various shades of white and different types of wood: white-treated Tanganyika frisé and natural mirror-varnished Makassar (open pore only for the ceilings). The owner asked for six different kinds of white for the marbles, white smooth natural leather, kinds of mother-of-pearl for the bathroom decor and “natural silver leaf”.
Hot Lab and RMK Marine – as for audio/video system – worked completely to modernise the domotic controls, in each cabin. Keyla features state of the art Crestron Systems with remote iPad’s control, throughout the boat. IPad’s enables to control- in addition to the entertainment – also curtains, window blinds and lights.
Keyla’s hull colour has been changed, and now she boasts an elegant Awlgrip Kingston Grey colour, which helps recognize her at first glance.
