Ilma‘s design subtly tells stories inspired by the shores of its flag. Design features, colour palettes, materiality, patterns, and works of art are inspired by elements of Maltese mythology, coastline, history, and native fauna. Its interiors will incorporate fresh, neutral tones juxtaposed by light and dark finishes, enhancing the visual richness, while the adorned exterior nod to the sleek design of private yachts.

“With an aesthetic influenced by superyacht design cues, Ilma’s defining feature is its seamless integration of spaces, fostering a profound connection to the sea,” said Nicola Preece, Design Director at AD Associates. “A harmonious flow of geometry and texture between the interior and exterior creates a cohesive and tranquil atmosphere.”

The 224 suites aboard Ilma epitomise a refined sophistication. Each suite boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and a private terrace, resulting in light-filled accommodations that envelope guests in scenic seascapes and seaside harbors. Within the suites, delicate hues contrast rich textures and warm lighting. Designed with both serenity and versatility at their core, every suite can be adjusted to a variety of functions that seamlessly adapt to guest preferences.

Across the yacht, guests will discover a myriad of beautiful spaces for both social and private experiences. The onboard art program has been meticulously curated with thought-provoking pieces that encourage guests to immerse in their surroundings. A signature feature across the fleet, Ilma will expand on The Marina and Marina Terrace, featuring large Panasonic glass windows that draw in natural light, side doors that open and float above the water, and a hydraulic platform that will connect guests directly with the sea.

Embodying its natural surroundings, the Beach House seamlessly integrates with the coast, creating a daytime to nighttime experience where guests can relax and unwind. The design evokes a serene coastal atmosphere that reflects the sand and the sea, evoking understated indulgence.
