Bentley has sought the assistance of experts Princess Yachts to spec the Galene Edition Continental GTs. The car is defined by its bright white paint with bright blue contrasting highlights, while it rides on huge 21-inch polished ‘Propeller’ style wheels. The convertible hood is finished in dark blue too, imitating the canopies used on many yachts.

The yacht-inspired look continues in the cabin, with a selection of materials and trim finishes inspired by the seas. A full cabin upholstery finished with Linen and Portland mimics the seating found on many superyachts, while cars can be specified with unique, hand-painted Jaume Viladell illustrations of yachts on the dashboard fascia. The same Glacier White paint shade used on the car’s exterior is dotted around the cabin too.

Finally, Mulliner has created a new material specially for the Galene Edition. Called Pinstripe Walnut, it’s used in open-pore form and is found on both the centre stack and console. Pinstripe Walnut is also used as an insert on the treadplates, while it also lines the boot floor.
