The Yacht Club Costa Smeralda is a premier sailing association based in northern Sardinia. When the club decided to build another facility, they chose Virgin Gorda, one of the British Virgin Islands. Located on Oil Nut Bay, the yacht club features a 38-berth marina and a luxurious clubhouse designed by OBMI International. The clubhouse features an oceanview terrace, restaurant, bar, and infinity pool. From the terrace, guests can take in the alluring views of the clear ocean water and sailing vessels. You can also see other islands in the distance.
White Cable Railing System:
The project managers at Victor International searched online for a cable railing provider. Above all, they were looking for a fabricator who could provide custom work to suit their unique needs. When they found Keuka Studios, they were impressed by our ability to meet the demands of any job site.
Our team designed a cable railing system for the clubhouse’s spacious waterfront terrace. In order to fit the yacht club’s nautical look, the designers chose a powder-coated white cable railing system. The railing features steel Ithaca Style posts, stainless steel cable infill, and a teak wood top rail. These materials can resist corrosion even in the harsh, salty air.
For a clean and polished look, the railings posts were core drilled into the clubhouse’s concrete structure. Afterward, the builders laid tile around the posts. We also crafted CNC-machined escutcheon plates for each railing post.
We also had to come up with a creative solution for the termination of the railing system. Our engineers designed a custom terminal anchor inspired by a headboard plate.
