North Beach Marine Canvas, San Francisco, Calif.
This project, which one an Award of Excellence in the salon/dinette upholstery category of the 2009 MFA Awards, involved the complete new upholstery for the interior of this Hylas 40 for the live-aboard couple. The couple wanted perfection in every detail, way beyond the factory standard. They requested a professional interior, as their boat is very important to them and they wanted it done right. All the measurements were altered from 14-inch up to 2 inches for that perfect fit. They also wanted a stained-glass window for their wine cabinet in a nautical motif, something that would represent their good taste.
