"My boat Mariù represents quality to me, both because of the way it looks and the way it makes me feel. It's named for my mother, who strongly influenced my ideas about style, and the design was inspired by my love for the highest level of luxurious and understated excellence. Many of the boats I used to charter reminded me of hotel suites on the sea—too much white, lighting, marble and crystal—but Mariù is furnished with natural products, especially teak, oak and raffia. I love spending time on it with a close group of family and friends, barefoot and in a pareo."
