Touted as an ‘experience of nautical discovery and refined coastal tourism’, the newly refurbished MV Sorrento ferry has been given a new lease of life thanks to designers Lucy Marczyk and Sonia Simpfendorfer of Nexus Designs.
Should you find yourself looking to cross Port Philip Bay in southern Victoria, either from the Mornington Peninsula or the Bellarine, then the passenger and vehicle carrying MV Sorrento ferry running between Sorrento and Queenscliff is arguably the most stylish way to now cross the bay.
Referencing the traditional maritime materials of plywood and roping through the use of custom built joinery in beige laminates, pale plywood accents and rope-coiled furnishings paired with custom designed striped Axminister carpets, the Nexus Designs team have created a nautical look that is in keeping with their signature style of classic, understated chic. A perfect way to travel the seas.
