The interior

Walking down the staircase from Iduna's deckhouse is like stepping back in time to the golden age of yachting. Although the entire interior is brand new, the rebuild brief was to create the appearance of a boat that had been immaculately kept for 65 years. And boy did they succeed. All the materials chosen have a vintage look, including even panels with the odd knot or tasteful scratch.

The decorative scheme matches the authentic mood. Restrained furniture fabrics and understated cream carpeting create an air of calm, leaving supplementary features such as the cushions and artwork to introduce brightness and colour. The attention to detail is extraordinary: From the door handles and hinges to the porthole basins and lighting, design and function are in total harmony.

Cherrywood is used to great effect throughout the interior, which includes an owner's stateroom, guest double with ensuite bathroom, an ensuite guest twin, plus two large cabins for four crew members with a spacious bathroom, galley and crew mess. There is also a lovely lounge area, which offers another place for fine dining in addition to the deckhouse.
