||Excerpt from Circumnavigator
The custom interior of Sans Souci- created by interior designer Scott Cole working
closely with owner Roberta Williams- reproduces the high-end yacht style of the
Guilded Age. Like in the elegant main saloon of one of the famous extreme clippers
or even a steamship from the pre-1920’s, the leaded glass, the exquisite
veneers and woodworking, the graceful staircase with its classic banister and
balustrades, they all work well together and have been executed to perfection.
The high level of workmanship throughout Sans Souci underscores the feeling of
elegance. Everywhere you look there are woodworking details that please the eye.
After the first three weeks aboard, Roberta Williams described her feelings, “I
am very happy with the results and the main comment Ken and I- and our guests-
have is that it is a very comfortable boat. I wanted it to feel comfortable and
cozy- like a home. Inside the boat, even though obviously you know that you are
on a boat, it also has a homey feel and that was important to me.”
