BATON ROUGE AWARD-WINNER

Each week or so, we take a look at one or two of the finalists for the 2011 World Superyacht Awards.  Many of the newest and largest yachts available for crewed yacht charter have been nominated.

BATON ROUGE  is a nominee for Best Displacement Motor Yacht in the 60 to 84-meter range “yacht.”

 

WHO IS SHE?

This six-deck yacht boasts more volume than most other 63-meter luxury yacht charter vessels currently on the water.  Motor yacht BATON ROUGE was built by Icon Yachts, and features the exterior styling of Tim Heywood, with interiors by Redman Whiteley Dixon.

Fully-stabilized and optimized in every respect for luxury living afloat, her extensive interior guest areas include multiple lounges and a choice of dining options, which cohesively encompass both townhouse elegance and beach house chic to suit one’s mood.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The yacht offers accommodation for 12 guests in 7 large cabins.  The master is situated on the main deck, while two VIP cabins are on the upper deck.  Two doubles and two convertible doubles/twins are found on the lower deck of yacht Baton Rouge.

 

CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR

The interior offers beautiful woods, leathers, marbles, and nickel and bronze details, as well as handcrafted furniture and original artwork.  The vessel’s contemporary interior is considered both serene and stylish.

 

EXPANSIVE EXTERIOR

The exterior deck areas are nothing short of expansive, and they serve as great outdoor spaces for lounging and dining.  There’s an ondeck hot tub on Baton Rouge, and a dedicated sundeck which converts to a party deck, as well as a beach club lounge at sea level.

State-of-the-art entertainment and communications systems exist throughout the yacht.  For physical fitness buffs, there is a  gym and a very comprehensive inventory of water toys and tenders.

British Designers Fashion Yachts

BACKGROUND OF INTERIOR DESIGN

It’s been said the goal of interior design is to produce a harmonious whole.  This unit involves the architecture, function, and visual aspects of the interior that are unified. They are also pleasing to mind and body, and they are appropriate to the activities to be pursued there.  In the superyacht industry, the creative team at Redman Whiteley Dixon has hit this goal time and time again. 

REDMAN WHITELEY DIXON

Started in 1993, the UK-based designers first worked on sailing yacht interiors.  More naval architects and yacht owners took notice; therefore, the company was able to expand its portfolio to include motor yachts.

Some of the world’s most prestigious, newest and largest yachts now display interiors designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon (RWD). 

 

RWD-DESIGNED YACHTS

Of particular note are several luxury mega yacht charter vessels launched in the past 2 years, such as 62 meter BATON ROUGE, 62 meter ICON, 60 metre ANDREAS L, and 57 meter TWIZZLE.  With this in mind, one vessel in the 1-800 Yacht Charters fleet, is 58 meter KOKOMO.  She was recently selected as the 2010 Best Sailing Yacht over 40 meters by the International Superyacht Society.

 

REDMAN STYLE

Consequently, the studio is proud of its “open door, open plan” style.  Designers work in a relaxed yet focused environment. It is also unrestricted by a single, set house style.  Redman Whiteley Dixon handles all aspects of interior and exterior yacht design. Their expertise spans 10 meter tenders to 160 meter superyachts.
