Princess Iluka gets transformed by Keeley Green Interior Design

Australian timeless treasure, Princess Iluka, undergoes significant refit in time for superyacht resurgence in 2024

The signs are all there for a significant resurgence in the global superyacht charter market in 2024, building on growth across the sector in 2023.

Australia is also anticipating a surge in demand for superyacht charters, and it is predicted the Grande Dame of Australian superyachts, Princess Iluka, will be in particular demand, having just emerged from a major refit, preserving its status as a timeless classic.

At the helm of the makeover, is Brisbane’s Keeley Green, and her team at Keeley Green Interior Design, a boutique agency that specialises in luxury residential, boutique commercial, and superyacht projects.

Keeley has applied her signature elegant, luxurious, and sophisticated interior design while honouring Princess Iluka’s history.

Constructed by Ray Kemp in Australia in 1979, Princess Iluka is constructed entirely of Huon Pine, a protected tree species native to Tasmania.

KG Design was entrusted with managing the interior aspects of the refit, including flooring, wall panels, ceiling panels, lighting, joinery, and furniture.

The refit utilises both international and local resources. Luxurious feature wall panel fabrics from France and Spain were sourced, while new timber flooring was also sourced locally in Queensland, laid in an elegant herringbone pattern.

KG Design Director, Keeley Green said, “Princess Iluka provides guests with something a little more unique – she has a soul,”

“She features all of the modern conveniences expected today, with a nod to the romance of travel in the past,” she continued.

When designing Princess Iluka’s refit, Keeley drew on her international experience and education, from growing up in Africa and Papua New Guinea to completing her Interior Design Master’s in Italy.

Now back in Brisbane, Keeley continues to bring her refined sense of style and eye for quality to boutique commercial to high end residential and everything in between.

“As the designer for the interiors, my goal is to make guests feel they are stepping onto a unique motor yacht, creating an experience that feels special and making precious family holiday memories,” Keeley said.

“It was essential to keep all of the practicalities of designing for life at sea in mind while allowing for design flair and luxury,” she added.

Now chartering in Australian waters, the 34.5-metre-long yacht offers flexible accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 cabins.

While specialising in superyachts, KG Design also specialises in the interiors of luxury properties and boutique commercial properties, helping clients through the journey of renovating and building.
