“As a designer and creator, I’m always looking to do something bigger and better. When it comes to super yachts, adding my signature style to an incredible Rossinavi creation is a challenging and exciting step,” said Scott gillen, founder of Unvarnished. “I’m creating one of the most unconventional designs you’ve ever seen on a yacht of this caliber. I want to create a true sense of sanctuary for this home at sea with the same relaxed yet luxurious vibe as your home on land. I designed an innovative open space concept that doesn’t seem disjointed or confusing with a cohesive look and vibe throughout. “
Gillen’s style, acclaimed for attracting buyers looking for open spaces that seem effortless and usher in a calm and awe-inspiring atmosphere, will take shape in the yacht to create the ultimate at-sea sanctuary in a post-pandemic world. Dedicated to making the interior feel like an extension of their home, Gillen plans to design a seamless interior that reflects the high performance and speed-oriented exterior, without ever sacrificing comfort, design, functionality or the quality.
Gillen, who always believed his artistic aesthetic would transfer well into the yacht world, was featured last year by Justin blue, CEO of Yachtsblue, Italian yacht builder Rossinavi and Italian exterior architect Fulvio di Simoni, two of the most prestigious names in the bespoke yachting industry. Familiar with Gillen’s renowned house designs, the famous duo approached Gillen with the opportunity to organize something uniquely special. This project marks a one-of-a-kind collaboration between designer and builder that will capture the attention of yacht enthusiasts at every stage of its three-year construction. Rossinavi is well known for creating special projects designed and built according to the wishes of the owner and has become the leader in the Italian production of custom yachts.
“The cooperation between Rossinavi and Unvarnished was born from the desire to keep the sporty character of the boat without losing the vision of spaces, ergonomics and elegance,” said Federico rossi, CCO of Rossinavi. “From Rossinavi’s experience for high performance boats, a new challenge opens in the full custom category. An extremely light superyacht with a super sporty attitude, which can reach high speeds, above 30 knots, in which technology is mixed with luxury. ”
With its aesthetic rooted in warm, minimalist tones and clean geometric lines perfected in every detail, Gillen’s design will feature exotic woods such as teak, oak and walnut and modern hues of white, sand and polished stainless steel, and a custom color scheme for the aluminum hull and superstructure. Built to feel like a Gillen-designed home on the water, the yacht will showcase a complete modern reimagining of the interior with art-deco design of the master suite, guest bedrooms, main salon, expansive club beach and multimedia room.
The yacht’s vast open spaces will provide a connection to the sea without feeling like it is closed while the beach club will offer the option of separating the space for more privacy, with the windows closed to the stern.
Gillen’s work is currently on display in a collection of architecturally significant homes known as The Malibu Series, including a quintet of outstanding homes in a private cliff-front enclave called The Case, which includes homes ranging from approximately about $ 100 million.
