The analysis of the furnishing system in relation to the evolution of the motor yacht can propose several insights. Firstly, on the aesthetic evolution of furnishings, in relation to the construction systems and materials used, secondly, the evolution of the organization of living spaces in relation to the general proportions of the boat. Ultimately, the study of the evolution of the concept of life on board. If we consider the purpose of modern pleasure crafts -and theirs evolution over last decades- the nautical space could be considered as a derivation of residential architecture, from which it takes living and functional standards. Every form and functional solution of yacht interiors appear nowadays a derivation of "home typology" configuration. In general terms, the aesthetic outcome of living spaces is influenced, in turn, by the change of vogue, sociological implications, technological evolution of building processes and materials. The evolution of inhabited spaces also influence the general aesthetics of the modern yacht, so the interior design nowadays is a increasingly determinant part within the general planning, whereby the geometrically regular shapes of hull and superstructures are the outcome of a common projectual vision that charecterizes the entire project through a unified style concept.
