This is why owners of yachts look to Donald Starkey for top class design in the interior and exterior of their yacht. one of his newest designs is the Westport 163ft Wabi Sabi, this yacht benefited from the interior design skills of Donald Starkey. Another yacht that Donald designed was the strong and bullish looks of the MegaYacht Luna 377ft built by Lloyd Werft and belongs to the growing fleet of MegaYachts owned by Roman Abramovich see the picture below.
