The interior of the ‘continental GT convertible’ pays homage to the finest hand-crafted materials and exquisite details that are championed by yachts. The glacier white external paintwork is echoed inside, in the stowage case and fascia panels, which can be specified with a unique handpainted Jaume Vilardell illustration of a super yacht with the mulliner script.
The result of this refreshing cooperation is far from yachting’s usual corporate depiction of stark blue, white and red, and fast boats on water. Instead, illustrator Jaume Vilardell projects relaxation and escape, all in an alluring 1960s tone, gently brushed in watercolours and teasingly introducing lush foliage that draws us into location, sensing the warm, scented air. This is different.
Rather than going for the obvious ropes and Breton seats, literal nautical references can be found in the pinstriped walnut veneer – reminiscent of decking – on the central console and lining the boot. As an extremely bespoke touch, Spanish artist Jaume Vilardell’s watercolour illustration featuring a Flybridge, is featured on the interior fascia panels.
