We Provide interior design Services for boats and yachts. As a professional interior designer with over 30 years of experience in both residential and commercial design, and a boater for many years, I bring a comprehensive approach to marine interiors.


  • Freshwater is kind to a ship’s hull &engines
  • Freshwater boats tend to run fewer hours than seagoing vessels
  • Ship design doesn’t change quickly over time
  • Older boats from the Great Lakes will often have great structural integrity and strong engines, but a dated and antiquated interior.

Freshwater Gills can create a Design package custom made for you. Packages range from small, such as a new mattress and bedding ensemble, to a full scale boat renovation. Such renovations could include:

  • Tweaking the interior layout
  • New cabinets & countertops
  • Floor covering, wall surfaces
  • Upholstery, custom furniture
  • Lighting, technology upgrades
  • Shades & window coverings
  • And everything down to the finishing touches…
  • We are happy to work with your boat maintenance crew, or with our own.
  • The yachts and boats of the Great lakes have a great advantage.
