Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Greg Natale was engaged to refit this 100-foot, English-built, Predator superyacht in readiness for its relocation to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and new life as a privately owned leisure craft.
The brief was to elevate the interior experience to rival that of a luxury private jet and shrug off all predictable nautical allusions. The fifteen-year-old motor yacht was stripped back to the hull and its original cherry wood panelling restored and lacquered throughout to provide a glossy, warm background to the interplay of black and grey tones that match the boat’s sleek exterior. Custom wall-to-wall carpet in Greg Natale’s Ink pattern ties the interior spaces together, with finishes such as granite, marble, leather and gold accents creating a refined living space.Comprising an owner’s suite and double VIP cabin (each with ensuite), two twin cabins and separate crew quarters, the yacht’s spacious accommodation is beautifully furnished. From its timber and granite-lined bathrooms to its restored teak deck, this is a superyacht with a super-sophisticated design.
