From Reverie to Freedom

Megayacht Reverie was build in year 2000,  built by Benetti, with a length of 70 meter a beam of 12,5m and her seven decks, Reverie, the ultimate mega luxury motor yacht is the largest yacht built in Italy in the last fifteen years. This fabulous vessel of 1500 tons combines the space of a cruising ship with the richness and luxury of a magnificent megayacht. The interior design and decor were entrusted to the famous English designer John Munford, who proposed classic furnishing in dark mahogany and walnut. The furniture is in Regency and Imperial English style with vaulted ceilings showing fresco paintings. Columns, pilasters and capitals with floral design have been widely used, as well as a profusion of exclusive marbles. Every single detail has been carefully selected in order to make this yacht a very exclusive and unique vessel.

As it went, in the millennium year we supplied gilt leather for this magnificent yacht,  John Munford had them fitted in the boiseries of the main dining room. The leathers were purchased at Renwick & Clarcke ltd our UK distributors at that time

Reverie eventually was sold and re-baptized Freedom and here you got the explanation for the title of this posting.

A view of the yacht in a bay of an Italian town (?) I’m aware that the perspective is in the advantage of the yacht, nevertheless it looks impressive.

This is the only picture of the dining room I could find online. At the far end one can see the gilt leather, above the dado rail you see Verentuil  panels, under the dado rail  you will note the Lauderdale panels with their characteristic lozenge design. This is not all, framing the elaborated ceiling just before the mahogany cornice you will recognize Marot Borders in a Gilded & Cream version.

As Always
