No commission is too much trouble for.
Bentley's cars have some of the finest interiors in the business, but what if you want your luxury yacht to have a matching interior? Proving that no customer request is too much trouble for Bentley, the owner of a Continental GT commissioned the luxury automaker to design a bespoke interior for their 18-meter Contest 59 CS yacht that perfectly matches the luxury grand tourer, and the result is spectacular.
To bring their vision to life in the one-off project, Bentley's Design Services department collaborated with Dutch yacht builder Contest Yachts. Bentley has built special-editions cars with yacht-inspired styling before, but this is on another level.
The owner's Bentley Continental GT has a Hotspur red leather combined with contrasting Linen beige hide, which was recreated inside the luxury yacht. No detail was overlooked, as the interior paneling in the yacht also features the same diamond-in-diamond stitching found in the Continental GT.
This unique quilting requires exactly 712 stitches per diamond and takes a lot of skill to apply. On the outside, the yacht's deep blue hull complements the Light Sapphire finish of the owner's Continental GT V8 Coupe.
"This project was an opportunity for Bentley Design Services to showcase some of their many skills in a truly unique collaboration. Bentley cars embrace qualities of craftsmanship and styling that are only achieved at the highest level of nautical design," said Brett Boydell, Head of Bentley Design Collaborations at Bentley Motors.
Arjen Conijn, CEO and Co-Owner of Contest Yachts, added: "Our family has been building premium class sailing and motor yachts for more than 60 years. We are well-known for our thorough approach to customization, which allows us to fulfill the expectations and preferences of every customer. This project is the ultimate example of this approach - working with Bentley to turn a customer's dream into reality."
