Heesen about the interior design:

“Acclaimed Italian designer Cristiano Gatto – at his sixth collaboration with this Dutch shipyard – created a chic minimalist interior, a contemporary interpretation of New Déco. The extensive use of upholstery, both on vertical and horizontal surfaces, allows Ayla’s new owners to choose material and color palettes to create the atmosphere that meets their taste. The design offers comfort and coziness thanks to the use of soft chenille fabric, while high gloss ebony and Canaletto walnut timbers confer a very luxurious feel throughout the whole interior.”

Delivery is scheduled for April 2018. Another yacht with this design with the project number YN 18750 is scheduled for Spring 2019.
