Matakauri Lodge outdoor furniture

We are about to start recovering all of the Coastal Design Slipcover outdoor furniture at Matakauri Lodge. This is a luxury 5 star boutique hotel and spa resort, located on Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, New Zealand.

This will be in Charcoal Sunbrella Furniture Fabric, which is both stylish and hardwearing.

Matakauri Lodge may sound familiar, it’s the lakeside resort where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly stayed recently.

AY54 work begins


Soon we begin work on AY54, a large motoryacht in build at Alloy Yachts. At owners request this project is confidential, so will be updated when we are allowed to share more details!

AY46 “Mondango 3″ canvas work completed

We have now completed “Mondango 3″ and they have headed off for warmer waters.
We made a multitude of shade and sun awnings for them as they are spending a lot of time in warm climates. We also provided numerous interior and exterior covers designed to keep the yacht in perfect condition, and make it very useable with these in place.
It’s been a pleasure to work with these repeat clients again.

“Cary Ali”

“This stunning superyacht was launched 18th October 2012.”

We have completed the exterior upholstery, which is in a range of Perennials fabrics. We have been busy producing a full set of interior and exterior covers, and hand leathering exterior handrails. The huge sundeck bimini is now installed. This is manufactured in Stamoid F3933, and features a removable forward portion. A complete strataglass enclosure with zip openings for this area is to follow.

New Biminis For “Vertigo”

Recently we made new flybridge biminis in Sunbrella Plus for the 220′ Briand ketch “Vertigo”. These were then shipped to the boat in Europe.

Sunbrella Plus has a coating on the underside that improves water repellancy, while still allowing the fabric to breathe.

CMC have just been chosen to manufacture all the exterior upholstery for this magnificent superyacht. We’ll keep you posted on progress.
