Boutsen Design, a Monaco-based company that provides interior decoration for business, jets and residence, has entered the superyacht market with the launch of Boutsen Design Yachting.
Company founder and managing director Daniela Boutsen has joined forces with Maxime Castellini-Ninio, former head of the members’ relations department of the Monaco Yacht Club, as partner in the new venture. Both will lead a team of 14.
Boutsen Design Yachting will draw on the 15 years’ experience and contacts of mother companies Boutsen Aviation and Boutsen Design to support global projects creating bespoke interiors for owners, yacht designers and shipyards worldwide.
“In establishing Boutsen Design Yachting we are aiming to position ourselves as the ‘go to’ partner in the design process in this exciting sector, working on projects from the beginning in close collaboration with interior designers,” comments Daniela Boutsen.
Boutsen and Castellini-Ninio previously worked together on a refurbishment project for Lord Foster, overseeing the interior decoration of the Clubhouse’s private dining room and “members only” cabins of the Monaco Yacht Club.
The company has recently inaugurated a new atelier near the harbour in Monaco. The showroom is supported by a dedicated logistics centre.
Boutsen Design Yachting will both sponsor and participate in the Superyacht Design Symposium in Kitzbühel. The event runs from 21-23 February.
