The yacht has always been a symbol of elegance and technology, a place for relaxation, socializing and business, where maximum comfort and luxury are required.
High quality materials and refined details allow you to create a luxury yacht with the same comforts as a home on the mainland.
The pleasantness of the experience on board a yacht depends not only on the furnishings but also on the lighting: the living room, the bedrooms and the other spaces of the boat require a detailed and accurate lighting design project.
The lights especially in the darkness of the sea at night help to create a unique experience, bringing a touch of class and refinement, as well as ensuring safety and comfort during navigation.
Let’s see what are the most innovative solutions for lighting a luxury yacht, so that it shines even in the open sea.
What are the problems in lighting a yacht
Creating a good lighting project for a yacht is not easy at all. Thanks to the collaboration and supervision of the owner, interior designers have to overcome some problems to set up an efficient and safe lighting system.
The first is certainly the reduced height to accommodate designer lighting, as depending on the specifications of the boat, some environments (especially below deck) can have this problem.
Another complication is given by the pitching and rolling phenomena due to navigation which could cause possible movements of the lighting fixtures, therefore these must be firmly anchored to avoid annoying noises and dangerous movements.
Finally we find the possible usury and corrosion of the materials given by salt and humidity.
Among the solutions to be adopted is the use of salt-resistant alloys such as stainless steel, brass and above all glass, suitable both for lighting and for separating spaces.
Which interior lights for boats to buy?
In recent years it has become evident how the interiors of modern boats are designed and produced with the same needs as villas or luxury apartments, taking care of every detail to make the yacht a limitless habitable space.
When choosing the lights to illuminate a yacht, it is necessary to combine both the aesthetic and the functional aspects, so as to obtain safe navigation in a welcoming and bright environment, without giving up on luxury.
In the Main room, it could be the living room or the dining room, the advice is to choose a large ceiling light in the center of the room, surrounded by LED spotlights, and to use sconces so as to save space and decorate the walls at the same time .
For the bedroom, bedside abat jour are the masters together with table lamps for activities such as reading, carefully welded into the support surface, together with spotlights which will instead guarantee general lighting.
Two more tips:
- LED technology: it is recommended to use LED bulbs for all lighting devices, both for duration and above all to optimize current consumption by putting less strain on the yacht’s electric generator and promoting energy savings.
- Lampshades: For ceiling lights, appliques, bedside lamps and floor lamps, it is recommended to use light-colored lampshades, so as to avoid direct light into the eyes and make each luminous body elegant.
