Unbridled talent takes Table Top Challenge award

ADVERTISEMENT

Interior crew were recognized yesterday in a Table Top Challenge that pitted the styling of the stews on a dozen yachts in the show.

The winner is the interior department of M/Y Unbridled, a 191-foot (58m) Trinity, led by Chief Stew Hanna Ross-Taylor, for its masquerade-themed setting.

“I thought I made so many mistakes that there was no way we would win,” she said. “I didn’t have a menu, I kept the water glasses off, my chairs were all off balance. But I guess they liked it.”

She and her interior staff began planning their table three weeks ago during their Atlantic crossing, and they worked on it every day, she said. Judges were welcomed to the formal dining area by a basket of live butterflies. Dry ice smoked off the ceiling lamps and under table decorations. Sconces were draped in lace. A large mask decal decorated the large mirror.

“It was so over the top,” Ross-Taylor said. “The captain let me have a day, but we had to take it down. The yacht is seriously for sale.”

First runner up was the crew of the 140-foot Benetti M/Y Cheers 46, led by Chief Stew Ashley Chambers, with an Around the World theme in which every place setting represented a different country.

Second runner up was the interior crew of the 116-foot M/Y Cheers 46, led by Chief Stew Carrie Wolf, and its Phantom of the Opera theme.

The competition was organized by Liquid Yacht Wear.
