Yacht Liqueur Cabinet
Aboard this 54′ Bertram is a large storage space on the starboard side of the salon. My job was to design and build a bar for the liqueur bottles and somehow still allow access to the storage compartment behind it. After some thought I realized I could hinge the cabinet if I built it in the shape of a semi-circle. From there all I had to do was work on the aesthetics. I combined curly maple since the rest of the salon was maple, and acrylic for a curved mirror and bottle holders. The bottles come in and out by lifting and swinging them out of the wood socket base. The clear acrylic holds the tops of the bottles securely while the boat is bouncing along on the seas. Since some brand of bottles where too tall to fit in this space I made use of another space adjacent to this one with the same holder concept.
