Functional design must be taken into account when outfitting and designing yacht interiors. Using products that work well to perform their assigned tasks taking into consideration the obvious elements (storage, movement, weather, salt, travel schedules, service styles, just to name a few). Every boat is different.
Our customer service will assist in those hard to find replacements needed. Aqualuxe further creates and customizes an “Outfitting Brochure” for every project, including item descriptions and images for easy reference, which then can be sent to the Yachts Owners, for quick approval.

Customer Service is our top priority, and we are committed to meeting the deadlines. We ship internationally and are available to travel worldwide to meet the demands of our elite clientele.
What sets us apart from other marine outfitting services, you ask?
Pricing and experience. Years of experience aboard and outfitting some of the largest most lavish yachts, has narrowed it down to the “must haves onboard”. From the extremely high-end vendors to hotel suppliers, we have an extensive library, and deal directly with the manufacturers. We know firsthand the importance of experience in the Luxury Yacht Industry and continue to work closely with top stewardesses and interior designers to keep our clientele with the best selections available in today’s market.
We specialize in bespoke interior decorating and outfitting services, we begin by taking into account the size of the vessel, because of storage limitations, whether it is private or charter, will determine many factors. For example, we have a yacht with two owners, very distinct tastes, and we customize their stay aboard so that every aspect from bedding to the service style is according to their personal preferences.
"I was crew, I identify myself and understand the interior challenges. Local and abroad boatyard periods, preference sheets, inventories, duty schedules, flower arrangements, silver service courses, medical training, bar mixology, event planning, crew training, interior manuals, 24Hr turn-around’s… Yes I did them all… NE USA Coast, Bahamas, Caribbean Islands, the Med, yes several times. Nearly a decade of top tier Charter-Private Yacht Interior & Estate Service. Once you have been in yachting as long as I have been, happens that your deckies 10 years ago are now captaining their own vessels and the stews are now brokers, event planners and moms and we get to still work together. Yachting is like a big family to us" explains Cris Clifford, owner of Aqualuxe Outfitting.
We are your virtual assistant.
