McKinna Yacht Design Ethos
We believe the most pleasing visual aesthetic environments are a reflection of exceptional and intentional (purposeful) human design talents. A study of balance, symmetry, and perfect proportions. We respect the hierarchy and important relationships between design architecture, visual aesthetics and decor that create harmony. It is a discipline of addition through subtraction where less becomes more and calm (visual appeal) is created through continuity. We subscribe to principles where perfect proportions and visual aesthetics exist in our designs, and beauty is produced by the pleasing appearance and good taste of the whole.
The interior workmanship of a McKinna is an artful melding of woods and fabrics fashioning an alluring and inviting air [unforgettable ambiance]. Informed, microscopic, culminated details form an end-to-end microcosm of a demonstrated commitment to excellence - quality of design and luxury of lifestyle.
