Ultimate Maritime Retreat
One of the most unusual feasibility studies we have ever completed; our design team embraced the challenge to convert a 400-tonne steel hulled schooner into a unique maritime retreat. Built in 1910 for the Irish lighthouse service she served until 1966 when she was decommissioned and converted into a youth adventure training vessel.
The brief was to transform the historic tired boat into a series of classic styled living and entertaining spaces. The main deck level has large external areas with a bespoke bar located in the stern, a perfect place to relax in style. From this level, you enter the wheel house which boasts a large lounge and the Captain’s cabin; a luxury double berth with ensuite facilities. A discreet staircase from the Captain’s cabin leads you up to the bridge and a private deck level.
A spiral staircase flows down from the main deck into the lower section of the hull, where ample dining and intimate entertaining spaces are adjacent to the 6 no guest cabins with the crew quarters positioned in the stern. A challenging brief, this maritime retreat is a welcome abode for any worthy skipper!
