Sarissa has been designed for a young family to have ‘big adventures in remote locations’, with the performance to race competitively. With Navel Architecture by Tripp Design, Sarissa is one of the largest carbon composite superyachts to date, with hull construction at Green Marine before outfitting at Vitters.

With strict weight constraints the challenge was to create an interior that was distinctly modern yet intimate, and reflected the romanticism of sailing. The interior is the synthesis of an elegant sailing yacht and a relaxed beach house, with the sophistication of a New York apartment. The various cabins flow together but have individual atmospheres, making the interior a collection of original experiences.

The final material palette was developed in close collaboration with the owner, and features a combination of cherry furniture, limed oak feature panels, and brushed stainless steel fittings. Contrasting outboard elevations feature carbon frames, dark leather, and beautiful Rosewood furniture. The furniture styling is crisp and modern, with hidden details of warmth and softness. This detailing extends to the custom hardware – all from the Rhoades Young Design drawing board.
