Sailing the High Seas in Style

A Greek shipping family,  spent  four years  restoring this 1966, 150 foot ship back to it's original state. The ship suffered damage in a storm in 2005, but they were able to save the  Burmese- Teak paneling trimmed in 22 Karat gold, something rarely seen on a yacht.  It was the work of French based design firm Maison Jansen, established in the 1800's. but closed up shop in the 1980's The ships interiors are clean and uncluttered ,with a style that is in  keeping with the 1960's and very chic for today.

Gorgeous and like how they didn't make it look too modern but really kept the integrity of the boat in mind...beautiful!
