The Codecasa-crafted Bon Vivant 164ft superyacht, which comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests across its six cabins – complemented with a tasteful Nordic-inspired interior – has been kitted out with a Genelec loudspeaker system by Finnish integrator 4Business Oy.
4Business was given a strict initial brief detailing the need for reliable, stand-alone AV systems which were easy for the crew to use. The team implemented a centralised matrix with automated logic controls that would serve the crew and client better.
Sonic clarity was the primary driver behind decisions, yet all technical equipment had to be hidden out of sight.
"We worked closely with the interior architect to ensure that all the components were integrated properly," explained Janne Lankinen, chief operating officer at 4Business.
"We’re used to this level of cross-disciplinary collaboration and utilise 3D modelling tools to plan the project properly and minimise the actual integration time. The entire process took almost a year."
Bon Vivant is divided into three main areas: an upper deck comprising the lounge and bridge, the middle deck which hosts the saloon, gym, multi-functional room/office, and the master cabin, and finally the lower deck, which is made up exclusively of the remaining bedrooms.
These rooms were fitted with their own Genelec audio system. 4Business devised a solution consisting of in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeakers to preserve the minimalist interior.
"We opted mainly for Genelec’s AlC25 model, which provides the backbone of the installation,” explained Lankinen. “This in-ceiling loudspeaker blends seamlessly in any room with zero compromise in audio quality – perfect for projects of this nature where discretion is nearly as important as sound quality."
