Yachting | 2020 | Text: Marcus Krall
Presented to the public at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show “Tis” stood out among the 125 superyachts in port. Not only because of her length of 111 metres and her status as the largest yacht of the show. Her lines created by Winch Design from London and her dark blue hull convey an elegance that some ship-yards and designers seem to have lost in recent years. Anyone walking along the ten-metre gangway will soon notice that the briefing was not just about the exterior look.
The owner had four of the nine cabins installed on this lower deck. They are mainly reserved for business guests and, like all cabins on “Tis”, have a geographical reference. While the businesspeople move into rooms with the themes “Provence”, “Chinese Sea”, “Russian Dacha” and “Tuscany”, the other guests sleep on the main deck in cabins called “London”, “Paris”, “New York” and “Marrakesh”.
One floor above, “Tis” unfolds its full splendour. Like in a Grand Hotel, the Main Salon shows two free staircases leading from the deck above, the owner’s deck. The furniture is based on the epochs from Louis XIV to Louis XVIII; shades of gold, brown and blue as well as white columns create a very dignified ambience that continues on the owner’s deck. The stairs leading from there to the saloon begin in a lobby followed by the owner’s suite. In addition to a bedroom with a 180-degree view ahead and access to the helicopter landing pad, there is a private hairdressing and beauty room, two walk-in closets and two bathrooms, as well as balconies that are only accessible to the owners. A little privacy is needed!
