Award-winning carpet producer SYLKA™ has been named as a finalist at this year’s International Yacht and Aviation Awards for its work on luxury motor yacht Galaxy of Happiness.
The 53-metre vessel is the world’s largest trimaran and is well recognised in the industry for its innovative look and design.
As part of a refit led by Marek Olko, of O&O European Design, SYLKA™ has fitted its luxury range of carpets throughout, including a bespoke logo using its new Hand Tufted service.
The quality of design and installation left the judging panel at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards in awe and has led them to shortlist SYLKA™ in the flooring category at this year’s awards.
Steve Farrell, Founder and Managing Director at SYLKA™ Carpets, said: “We are delighted that the judges at this year’s International Yacht and Aviation Awards have decided to select us as a finalist for this prestigious honour.
“Our work on board the Galaxy of Happiness is truly unique and all those involved have been blown away by the results that we have helped to achieve.
“The marine and yacht industry continue to be important areas of growth for SYLKA™, so we hope this latest recognition will boost our position in the market further.”
In recent years SYLKA’s marine division has gained a substantial foothold in the industry, impressing builders, designers, owners and crew alike with its beautiful and hardwearing carpets.
Utilising its NuSilk™ microfibre, SYLKA™ easily withstands sun damage and spillages, including salt water.
Its ability to withstand heavy foot traffic also makes SYLKA™ ideal for charter vessels, including in busy areas like staircases, salons and lobbies.
In order to win the competition, SYLKA™ must secure a public vote.
Steve said: “We are calling on designers and builders from around the world to go online and get behind us by voting.”
SYLKA™ will find out if it has won the competition at a ceremony due to be held at Hotel Cipriani in Venice on 18 May 2018.
