List GC furnishes the 60 m superyacht Lusine – Elegant interiors at the highest level from the Austrian family run company
Rare woods, exquisite fabrics and leather skillfully combined, using both craftsmanship and technical competence, are creating the harmonious overall picture of the 60 m motor yacht Lusine. This craftsmanship shows up the strengths of Austrian interior+ outfitter List General Contractor GmbH (shortened as List GC).
List GC was entrusted with furnishing the owner’s and guest areas, as well as the main staircase and the bridge deck. This marks the team’s second collaboration with with Dutch Heesen shipyard, led by List GC’s Project Manager, Philipp Moser.
Covering an area of 278 m², the specialists at List GC once again demonstrated their expertise in handling complex projects. The interior design was conceived by the renowned design studio Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, which masterfully intertwined various textures, surfaces, shapes, and colors to evoke a tranquil and elegant ambiance displaying a certain sophistication.
A mix of metals
One highlight is the private owner’s area on the wheelhouse deck, featuring a 50 m2 owner’s cabin that boasts a 180-degree panoramic view through its special windows. “In this project, the mixture of materials and the variety of details and surfaces truly stand out.
The custom-made handles made of metal and glass are especially remarkable. Each element, meticulously thought out down to the smallest detail, adds even more uniqueness to the already exquisite pieces of furniture,” emphasises List GC Project Manager, Philipp Moser.
The owner’s area is dominated by a central king-size bed. The bedhead is crafted from a combination of leather, wood, and metal, once again showcasing the complexity and the high standards set by the List GC project team in terms of uniqueness and execution.
The meticulous and top-tier design, brought to life through coordination between the shipyard, owner’s representatives, and the specialists at List GC, clearly stands out.
Gerhard Sonnleitner, Team Coordinator Production, spoke about the production of the wall panels: “For this yacht, everything had to be implemented using lightweight construction. Therefore, special attention was paid to the structure of the subframe. The panels consist of elaborate fabric, shiny metal strips, and three-dimensional parts – enhanced with metallic paint – as well as exquisite leather. These elements can be found throughout the entire yacht in various shapes and sizes. The windows are framed with leather on the sides and high-gloss veneers of wenge and sapele below.”
Light and shadow
Not only the main staircase, which is also part of the scope handled by List GC, but all areas of the yacht have been brought to life with a sophisticated lighting concept. Playing with light and shadow enhances the prominent glass elevator even further.
One of the most striking pieces is a cream- colored artwork made from cut leather surrounding the elevator shaft and the spiral staircase. “The focus here was primarily on safely bringing the large dimension of individually glued round panels on board, which was successfully achieved through excellent cooperation among all involved parties,” recalls Philipp Moser.
Elegant carpentry, versatile textures and rare surfaces
The guest areas reflect the design of the owner’s area: sophisticated material combinations of leather, stone, wood, and metal give these sections a special touch.
Johann Felzmann, Team Coordinator for Carpentry, still remembers the fabrication process of the guest areas vividly: “The bed elements were first covered with leather, and then a glossy polished walnut insert was added. For the bedside tables, we used bleached Louro Faia veneer, with precise processing required to achieve the desired veneer pattern. The finishing touch consists of a frame made of high- gloss polished veneer, within which a stone piece is inserted. The metal handles used, featuring integrated lighting, were custom- made, just like numerous other elements in this project.”
It is only through perfect collaboration within cross-functional teams that it is possible to fit out yachts of this size. The specialists at List GC have once again successfully achieved this with MY Lusine.
“It is a complex project with diverse material combinations and both craftsmanship and technical challenges in implementation, but in the end, the results speak for themselves,” summarises Philipp Moser.
Over the past years, numerous extraordinary yacht projects, such as the motor yachts Lady Jorgia (115 m), Artefact (80 m), and Alaiya (111 m), have been successfully executed.
This has allowed List GC to build a unique expertise and a valuable wealth of experience as an interior+ outfitter.
