Healthy Yacht Materials


our yacht material choices offer durability and style combined with sustainability and health benefits

From biobased to organic & upcycled

Healthy yacht materials

natural wellness benefits

Modern technology combined with a renewed appreciation for the genius of nature mean that we now understand far more than ever before about the air-purifying, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-odour, self-cleaning and sound-absorbing qualities of certain materials. By selecting each one for its unique characteristics we create sustainable yachts with added wellness benefits for those aboard.

Plant-based biomaterials

Organic & sustainable

We work with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) wood, organic cotton bed sheets, coconut fibre mattresses, cork tiles, palm leaf wallpapers, eco-rubber gym flooring, acoustic wool and corn husks wall vinyls (see image of Totomoxtle used here) to name but a few of our preferred plant-based materials for yachts.

Marine-based biomaterials

from seaweed to seashells

From spirulina health supplements to Thalassotherapy sea sessions , the eco-friendly health benefits of seaweed, algae and kelp are by now well established. Today they can be found in high-end mattresses, hydrating facial serums and even compostable food containers. Sustainably sourced seashells can also be used as inlays in wall panels or table tops for a distinctive bio aesthetic.

Upcycled plastic fabrics

textiles from ocean plastic

When replacing indoor or outdoor furniture fabrics during a yacht refit, we advocate for the use of high-quality Circular Economy textiles derived from upcyled ocean-plastic. A number of big players exist in the market already, from Repreve to Seaqual, OceanWorks and OceanBalance. We continually test and sample these fabrics prior to recommending them to our yacht clients.

High-grade metals

a focus on sourcing & recycling

Aluminium can be endlessly recycled in an energy-efficient manner. Stainless steel is fully recyclable, highly durable and retains value at the end of each life cycle. Materials with a closed-loop like these require no further natural resources from the earth provided care is taken to ensure they are suitably recycled.
