Luxury cruising yachts are so much more today than flashy exteriors and flybridge barbecues. The discerning yacht buyer wants fashionable, posh, yet functional interiors that rival the finest luxury homes and resorts. Prestige Yachts promise an exceptional life at sea, one that blends the beauty of the ocean with the comforts of home.
For many, a yacht is much like a second residence, particularly when plans include spending multiple days on board with guests. The luxuries of home are a necessity for a comfortable on-water vacation, but for designers it goes well beyond meeting basic needs. From channeling natural light to blending structural elements into the design of a room, the chic interiors of today's luxury yachts present a perfect harmony of artsy aesthetics, space maximization, functionality, and plush decor.

"Prestige owners want to go to sea, to connect with open spaces, with nature, they want to embark with their friends, with their family." - Valentina Militerno.
For the ground-breaking X70, Prestige sought the talents of Militerno and The Lab Project to undertake the interior design. As a very esteemed Italian designer, Militerno chose "Made In Saint-Tropez" as the overall theme for the elements through the main and lower decks. Each room embodies a feeling of warmth, elegance, and graceful ambiance.
"Evoking the image of Saint-Tropez in the 1950's, the interior design of the X70 is geometric, subtle, and inviting. Silk, leather, cashmere....the interior decoration aboard the X70 offers an unequalled level of quality, without ostentation."
After years of crafting her passion for interior design, Valentina Militerno created The Lab Project in Genoa, Italy, also her hometown. The Lab Project is defined as a creative laboratory, a place for clients and designers to meet with synergy. Below is a brief interview with Militerno on her
"Each customer is unique for me, and each project is a voyage for me: traveling across new geographical boundaries, entering new cultural realities, discovering new traditions, customs and people. Each time we meet, we discover, study and learn, to get to know ‘new worlds,’ both interior and exterior," she continued.

Militerno chose top-end suppliers to provide the wood, fabrics, furniture, and materials for the interior. High-quality textile manufacturers like Ivano Redaelli and Paola Lenti, as well as luxury furniture manufacturer RODA, were carefully selected by Militerno. These choices have come together to create an exceptional place to enjoy the water, one that was awarded "Best Layout" at the 2020 World Yacht Trophies.
