Superyachts have long been the pinnacle of style and elegance representing a luxury at the leading edge of technology. If you have a passion for sailing you may well dream of one day owning a superyacht. Your home on the water has everything you could possibly need to live a life of luxury on the move. That includes the latest technology and automation features to control everything on board.

Whatever the size or type of yacht, Crestron technology will enhance your lifestyle as it is simple and intuitive to use which makes it perfectly suited for the marine environment. Crestron lifestyle technology creates minimal impact on the vessel’s stunning interior features, allowing the designers to meet the aesthetic needs of the client without compromise on technical features and benefits.

Power, flexibility and elegance are just three words that define the magnificent 60m superyacht Madame Kate built in the Amels shipyard in Holland. This aesthetic and technical tour de force is a fine example of how a Crestron system can both elevate and enhance interior luxury.

Built for a South American client, Madame Kate boasts all the hallmarks of a world-class superyacht – superb interior design, uncompromised style and flawless attention to detail. Harris Grant, the AV specialist involved, had to skilfully negotiate a relative lack of on-board space and limited access during the build and Crestron installation, while minimising visual impact on the vessel’s stunning interior features.


A sophisticated, bespoke Crestron control system is at the heart of the yacht’s AV, communication and environmental structure which enables the owner, guests and crew fingertip control over on board entertainment and their environment (heating, lighting, air conditioning and blinds) simply via their own iPad’s and on elegant touchscreens located throughout the vessel. This level of control means all systems can be automated, programmed and changed effortlessly.

This bespoke Crestron-based solution provides Madame Kate’s owner with the same living experience enjoyed by the super-prime resident, with effortless control. The strength of technology means the system can be built refined and instantly reconfigured to deliver the exact functionality required through an elegant, natural interface.
