Azimut Benetti’s Lyana is set to compete within the MY over 60 metres category at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2013.

Lyana is a sixty-metre vessel with an attractive profile, emphasized by her blue hull and white superstructure color scheme. Stefano Natucci designed the exterior, while the interior is the creative idea of two French design studios: Zuretti and Pierre-Yves Rochon.

Lyana’s design confirms the symbiosis between the exterior and the interior, characterized by colour play and chiaroscuro. Most of the vessel has dark furnishing and decks, with bright bulkheads and overheads.

The stunning interior is the work of two French design studios: Zuretti and Pierre-Yves Rochon.

Lyana has four interior decks and one exterior deck. The living area is in the external aft section of the main deck. Passing through a double sliding door brings you to the ample salon, complete with a bar and illuminated by self-darkening picture windows.

Macassar ebony was chosen for the décor of the main salon (flooring, furniture and the lower part of the bulkheads), while Anigrè is used in contrast for the upper part of the bulkheads. Two maroon carpets complete the effect.

The owner’s area is accessed from the foyer. The impressive study is equipped with the most sophisticated technologies that allow the owner to stay in touch with the world, from wherever they sail.

The owner’s private stateroom houses two dressing rooms and bath behind a sliding door. The bath is completed in Afion white marble and has a freestanding bathtub and marble shower, all with Hansgrohe fixtures.

The owner’s berth is directly below the closable skylight, allowing a view of the stars at a touch of a button. There is also a private open-air area on deck, accessible only from the owner’s cabin.

The MY over 60 metre category has proved to be extremely popular this year and looks set to close very shortly upon reaching full capacity.

Diamonds Are Forever (another Azimut Benetti build), Palladium (Michael Leach Design) and the Feadship-built Lady Britt, Musashi and Tango are among those competing for the prestigious award.
