Kimberlie Scutti’s signature yacht suits this businesswoman’s lifestyle.
Kimberlie Scutti is passionate about a number of things. In fact, whatever she does, the Fort Lauderdale commercial developer puts her heart and soul into it. She’s developed over three million square feet of commercial real estate properties. “Shopping centers, casinos . . .”, she says with an inference of “you name it, we’ve developed it.”
She has an eye for interior design and revels in creating an interior that reflects her lifestyle.
“I like my interiors to be personal reflections of who I am,” she says.
A self-proclaimed workaholic, when it’s time for Kimberlie to kick back, boating fits the bill. “Boating is a passion as well as a hobby. I’ve had a lot of boats in the past, and I’ve always redesigned the interiors. It is wonderfully fulfilling to be on the water in an environment that is all yours.”
Imagining the interior of the 130-foot yacht, her latest project, she wanted something that was comfortable — a sort of home away from home. And the design of the interior was created to accommodate her lifestyle.
“I wanted to put my own touches — we took out walls, redid floors, made it really signature.”
An avid animal lover, she’s created the vessel to also be pet friendly for her dog, Lucky.
“Having a boat is to have a very personal place to entertain,” she says. “You have a captive audience; plus you can go places that you have never dreamed of.”
The master suite of her latest luxury yacht is on the main deck and is beautifully decorated with soft leather, glass panels, neutral fabrics, and oak and wenge wood paneling. Since Kimberlie’s job can be a 24/7 endeavor, there’s also an office aboard ship. A VIP stateroom for entertaining is located on the sky lounge deck, and there are a further four staterooms below deck, plus a formal dining room for 12 on the main deck. Each saloon is entered through automatic stainless-steel sliding doors.
The interior by Italian designer YD & AS has accommodations for 12 guests in six generous, well-appointed staterooms. There’s also a walk-in wardrobe and a sumptuous ensuite bathroom.
“I like my guests to have privacy and feel at home,” she says.
The interior configuration is also capable of carrying up to 10 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed, luxury yacht experience.
The IAG superyacht, which was delivered in 2010, was the first in IAG Yacht’s 127 series.
“I have owned a lot of different boats — Benetti, Burger,” says the yacht owner, who speaks with the knowledge of a seasoned mariner. “But this — well, this is quite exquisite — it is a beautiful boat, both inside and out,” says Kimberlie.
See this spectacular super-yacht at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.
