In an exceptional synergy of Italian style and design, yacht maker Benetti and Fendi Casa—the home-furnishing brand of Rome-based fashion house Fendi—have collaborated to produce Lady Lara, the 194-foot custom megayacht.

In its first venture at sea, Fendi Casa—under the direction of interior design firm Studio Massari—has provided the furnishings for Lady Lara, which Benetti delivered last summer. Characteristic Fendi touches abound throughout the vessel’s six cabins, which accommodate up to 12 guests, from the handles on the cabinets and doors, which resemble the distinctive fasteners on Fendi’s Spy bags, to lamps modeled after the company’s Karl Lagerfeld–designed double-F logo. The main salon is draped in soothing cream and beige upholstery, while gold finishes and moldings give the space a warm quality.

Though the focus is naturally on Lady Lara’s sumptuously adorned interiors, its Stefano Natucci–designed outdoor spaces also invite attention. The yacht’s sundeck sports a Jacuzzi and gym toward the bow and a large sun bed, swathed in Fendi Casa fur linens, resides aft. Not sacrificing performance for style, this posh megayacht is propelled by two 12-cylinder MTU engines to a brisk cruising speed of 15 knots. While Lady Lara is the first and, thus far, the only yacht to be entirely furnished by the brand, the obvious success of the project may very well lead to future maritime collaborations.
