Spear Green Design (SGD), based in Sydney and a core member of the Australian Commercial Marine Group (ACMG), has been awarded ‘Best Marine Interior Designers for 2018’ by Baird Publications in conjunction with Work Boat World within the commercial vessel worldwide category.

The award was presented in recognition of three specific major projects, all launched and delivered during 2018 to clients in Germany (56m), Mexico ( two 48m) and Tasmania (36m).

Each vessel was built to the highest of standards by some of the world’s top yards located in Philippines (Austal), Los Angeles, USA (Midship) and Tasmania (RDMC). All had unique features incorporated into the fit-out through forward thinking design and detailed styling by SGD. These featured in the bars and F&B outlets, lighting, furniture and joinery elements and also increased the vessels overall interior amenity.

SGD provided a full marine interiors concept, design development, specification and documentation package with supply chain management and additional specialist A/V and other consultation advice.

Spear Green Design Director, Jeremy Spear said “We are thrilled to win this prestigious award from Baird Publications / Work Boat World.
