Anaya "given by God" in Swahili. The owners of the Anaya had committed to building a new vessel with Horizon Shipyards. They came to us just after returning from a trip to Africa, with a great inspiration for her interior. Specially designed wool carpets with silk leopard prints adorn the floors following the patterns and color of the art, which we commissioned with California artist Gianna Marino. Following suit, the fabrics throughout the interior carry the distractive organic hue of the luscious African landscape. All walls are lined with high-gloss Macore and counters finished in camphor burl. Hardwood floors and stone tile inlays decorate the floors on all decks. Her fully-completed interior includes a specially-designed logo, which is incorporated in many of the final personal touches, like linen and accessories.
