Interior design in superyachts is not a novelty – but by now they, curated both inside and out by famous designers and studios, are becoming more and more popular with the super-rich who can afford certain levels of spending.
And it is certain that in the case of the Thumper, a superyacht built in 2014, this principle is absolutely true. The boat (if we like to call it that) is 131 feet long and can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests plus 9 crew.
Commissioned in British shipyards Sunseeker, the shipowner has availed itself of the assistance of HPM, a London-based developer studio which has completely redesigned the interior, then taking care of the final realization.
This is the result of a painstaking work down to the smallest detail where environments stand out for their brightness and elegance, playing with every aspect of light.
A project, therefore, totally personalized in its layout, design and finish, with a style inspired by a beach house in the Hamptons, which was nominated in the World Superyacht Awards, and has finished in the top 5 of its category.
Wood as a protagonist
The master bedroom has been expanded and made even more comfortable, as has the lower deck. It offers 4 large twin-bed cabins, each served by a private bathroom, in soft powder tones of beige and light blue. Combining with bleached oak it creates a harmonious whole, with great linearity, lightness and aesthetic impact, totally changing the stereotypes of traditional nautical interior design.
Oak, interspersed with shiny bronze profiles, is also the protagonist of the ceilings, and is found with leather and alcantara panels, enriched with precious stitching of rétro taste.
Light is the protagonist, falling into soft waves to let every interior of this real floating mansion breathe visually.
An important stylistic element is represented by the dining area, separated from the living room by a piece of furniture with retractable TV. The highlight here is a bespoke chandelier in Austrian porcelain. inspired by the sea and its inhabitants.
Particular attention has been paid to the bathrooms, real salles à bains, which offer surfaces in white marble and green onyx. With light oak wood, these colours create an elegant, materic and warm whole.
The Thumper – a truly superlative yacht – is now on sale. But if you really want – and the expense does not scare you – you can rent her for a holiday of authentic superluxury.
