We believe that the interior departments of yachting’s finest vessels deserve proper recognition for their many talents.
Stewards and stewardess’ artistry and imagination are key in setting the stage for memorable meals afloat. Their table dÃ©cor – center pieces, props, china, crystal, flatware and linens, are the feast for the eyes that sets the moodand enhances the chef’s culinary presentations.
