While cruising through the Mediterranean or Caribbean seas and drinking a cocktail at the bar on the upper deck of the new 46 meter Sanlorenzo’s super yacht, at first glance you don’t realise that you are actually leaning on a tropical aquarium, where fishes are hidden through woods and plants.
Luxury aquariums have become a must-have element of style and elegance aboard of super yachts, and the creation of these impressive pieces of design is one of the main goals of Melik Aquarium.
This Super Yacht has been launched in July 2015 at the drydocks of Viareggio, Italy, and presented at Monaco Yacht show in September 2015. The overall lay-out is typical for a vessel of this size: four large cabins, with two double and two twin with an additional pullman bed, are located on the lower deck and the owner’s cabin is located in the full beam area of the upper deck. Large, luxurious saloons are located on both the main deck and upper deck. Scorpion’s expansive sun deck features an external bar, a dining table and a jacuzzi area.
The client had a clear personal vision of the project, looking for ‘Pleasure and Happiness’.
The architect has been able to satisfy the client’s expectations of quality, comfort and beauty, thanks to the best craftsmanship, innovation, distinctive style and the beauty of extraordinary pieces of specialised furniture and art.
This Super Yacht has a unique interior comprised only by bespoke items; every piece has been specifically designed and created for it.
As part of this project Melik Aquarium has been able to implement the aquarium into the harmony of furniture, creating a unique piece of design, where the aquarium is not just a decor, but a real part of the furniture.
