"Elmiran" is a 80' Hatteras semi custom motor yacht that Karen Lynn Interior Designs completed in 2012 as a new construction project in New Bern, North Carolina Hatteras shipyard location.
She was commissioned by a Brazilian Owner who had definite plans about making the yacht interior and exterior unique and special compared to other Hatteras yachts on the market. Our Client was living in Brazil at the time and did not want to have to travel to New Bern thru Miami on a regular basis because of his busy schedule.
Karen Lynn Interior Designs was commissioned to be a part of the yachts interior design project in 2011. She met with the Client and determined the specific design direction and earth toned masculine color palette. She made changes to the existing factory layout and made changes to the interior architecture and woodwork, over head and lighting plan in order to make the yachts Interior function better and be more athletically pleasing.
She custom designed all of the cabinetry fronts, headboard walls, port and starboard lighting in the salon and custom designed loose furnishings. She selected all of the beautiful finishes and rich earth toned plush materials for the yacht soft goods. She selected all of the gorgeous granite, textured wall coverings and designed the soft window treatments. She coordinated with shipyard and builder on all levels and also provided drawings for all the custom interior components she altered and designed. She also made changes to the custom hardtop covered flybridge area on the layout and provided and designed all exterior areas. She manufactured all the interior/exterior loose furnishings and supplied all the finishes and coordinated deliveries and installs with Hatteras on delivering a first class complete customized yacht.
The yachts interior is rich and luxurious while being simple and cozy at the same time. The Client currently lives aboard "Elmiran" and enjoys the fun and exciting lifestyle in the Bahamas and South Florida.
