Trimline to refit Star Pride

By Rebecca Gibson |

Marine interior design firm Trimline is to refurbish Windstar Cruises’ new 106-suite power yacht Star Pride, which will debut on 5 May 2014.

Working in partnership with McVitty Interior Consultants, Trimline will carry out an extensive stern-to-stern renovation when Star Pride – which was purchased from Seabourn along with two other ships in February 2013 – is berthed in Barcelona, Spain.

Around 65 Trimline staff will carry out the project over a two-week period, refreshing the décor, furnishings, upholstery, lighting, wall coverings, and flooring in the majority of the vessel’s public areas. Many of Star Pride’s bars and dining venues will also be updated, while all of the ship’s 106 suites will also be renovated with new furnishings and seating.

Trimline’s marketing and sales director Mike Oliver said: “Having refurbished the existing fleet of three yachts, we are incredibly proud to have won the first refit of the three power yachts.”

Trimline recently refurbished all 73 cabins onboard Wind Star, one of the line’s four-masted sailing yachts. As part of the project, the company manufactured and installed 73 bespoke tables that retract into cushioned sofa areas, and also installed new carpets and mirrors. It also replaced wooden cabinets, manufactured new wooden window frames for the cabins’ portholes and re-cabled the cabins’ electrics.

“We are delighted to be working with Trimline again,” said Hans Birkholz, CEO of Windstar Cruises. “The standard of its work is exemplary as displayed by the recent renovation work on our sailing fleet. We are looking forward to working with the team on the transformation of Star Pride.”

Following her renovation, the 212-guest Star Pride will offer four European voyages to destinations such as Greece, Italy and Turkey, as well as three itineraries visiting Asian ports. These include Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and more.
