Two international yacht projects, USA and Greece
Bespoke floral arrangements in various styles and sizes
Stunning floral arrangements to complement grandeur
It’s not every week an international yacht management company approaches you to contribute to a multi-million dollar yacht refurbishment. So imagine my surprise when I was approached by not one, but two, completely different global yacht companies within the same week.
The two superyachts requiring renovation were worth over a hundred million dollars, with one undergoing a refurbishment worth seventy million dollars. It was both an honour and a daunting thought to be asked to get involved in two projects so grand in scale and value, but I was very keen to get started.
Finding the perfect fit
Both briefs were totally different
Despite the similar nature of the two luxurious organisations, the briefs and requirements were somewhat different. The first superyacht company to approach me was based in the US and required a series of large grand orchid displays to be designed, crafted and installed within one of the yachts under their management. Meanwhile, the second company was based in Greece and required almost 50 different handcrafted arrangements in varying styles and sizes.
Due to the complexity of the Greek company’s requirements, it was particularly important that the project was meticulously streamlined and well organised from the get-go.
Our arrangements have gone global
Sticking to a tight deadline
One of their representatives therefore flew over from Greece to meet me before the project commenced. Together, we discussed and formulated a strategy to make sure the final deliverables perfectly matched their requirements.
What also made the Greek project a little more challenging was the very tight deadline in which we were to design and produce the handcrafted florals. This was a result of the yacht being due to be sold to Saudi Arabia shortly after its renovation. However, despite the time-pressured environment, the project was still a great delight to work on and the representative I worked closely with was a pleasure to deal with.
Our bespoke florals arrived on time
Our hard work paid off
It took a lot of graft, flexibility and quick thinking, but both projects got to their destinations (Fort Lauderdale and Athens, respectively) on schedule. I was thrilled with the final results, but most importantly, so were the clients. Already, they’ve come back to me with requests for more arrangements for other yachts under their management. I’m already eager to get started.
Bespoke service levels
One of a kind projects
It’s always a huge compliment to be approached. But for the clients to then come back to me soon afterwards with further requests is such a great honour. Due to their lucrative nature of the companies and their yachts, there were exclusivity demands in place, which were naturally respected. That said, every Demmery’s is original; with each client receiving a bespoke package and service every single time.
