As a leading yacht art consultant, Artelier provides complete art collections & bespoke commissioning services for private superyachts & luxury cruise ships
Curating Art for Yachts
Having worked on over 30 superyachts, we understand the unique needs of the yacht environment – working with private clients, yards, designers and contractors.
Ensuring flawless integration, we commission bespoke artworks that meet technical, structural and material requirements. Every piece is adapted with specialist solutions for fixings and finishes, prepared for life at sea.
Step Onboard a Yacht Project
A Collection at Sea
Developing a complete art collection, we commissioned bespoke paintings, sculptures & decorative vases across all spaces, as well as a 6m gold leaf mural
Adapted to the Yacht Environment
Keeping the context in mind, artworks were integrated into structural elements such as TVs and wall panels, had specialist sea-fastenings, and resistant finishes
Our curators worked closely with a selection of contemporary artists, producing a high-quality collection that felt authentically collected
To elevate each artwork to its full potential, our consultancy developed specialist frames and lighting solutions that integrated pieces into their spaces
A Promise of Longevity
The bespoke art adds to the high-calibre presentation and becomes an asset to the yacht owner – whether they want to charter, sell, or enjoy for years to come

Specialist Art Services for Yachts
Developing an Art Strategy
Working with both private clients, leading designers and yards, we review in detail the client's vision for the yacht art collection. Each bespoke collection speaks to the maritime environment, whilst promoting individuality and personality.
Through a deep understanding of the context, our curators identify key spaces across the yacht, considering where pieces would make the most impact. We propose concepts for each space, developing custom solutions.
Yard Liaison & Logistics
To create a streamlined process, our curators collaborate and coordinate directly with the yard and the yacht's contractors, overseeing logistics and ensuring that project milestones and deliverables are met.
This includes the administration of imports and exports of artworks to and from yards, marinas and overseas territories. Our curators also arrange for appropriate insurance, which are specified to the yacht context.
Technical & Design Solutions
The collection is developed with longevity in mind: timeless pieces that are simple to maintain and move. The yard and contractors’ specifications are evaluated in detail, ensuring efficient integration of artworks in yachts.
To meet technical, structural and material requirements, each artwork is custom-developed with the artist for the yacht context. This takes into account how materials will age at sea, and the practical needs of each space onboard the yacht.
Presentation & Installation
Expert installation is key for yacht art projects. Our yacht art consultants design and develop marine grade sea-fastening structural fixings for wall art and sculptures. We then provide specialist technical support for installing the artworks.
These are developed together with presentation and lighting solutions, including bespoke frames, plinths, fastening for installations and integrated lights. Each each piece is therefore elevated in situ.
