Sounding more like an exclusive onshore venue than a covetable space onboard a superyacht, the Beach Club is rising in prominence and lavish accoutrements.
As the size of yachts increases, so too does the appetite for amenities and the capacity to include them. But while yachts increase in height, length and girth, charter yacht guests and owners want to get back to the experience of being on a boat – to see, feel and experience the allure of the sea.
Expanding the role of the functional transom – designed for access and to launch tenders and toys – the Beach Club has become the 'must have' aboard the largest and most luxurious charter yachts, offering guests the closest possible vantage point to the water.
These amped up swim platforms are now another relaxation space, complete with loungers, sunpads, entertainment systems, gyms, bars and even spas, making your luxury charter vessel its own floating resort.
Some exceptional examples include award-winning CHOPI CHOPI, the largest yacht from Italy's CRN Yachts, which has the mother of all beach clubs. Designed as a "floating family home", the 80m CHOPI CHOPI is praised for its massive proportions and luxurious interiors, all with restrained and harmony of design, rather than overtly ostentatious.
More a ship than a boat, CHOPI CHOPI was designed with the brief of "creating enjoyable outdoor living spaces". Thus, among its six spacious open decks is the mammoth 100m² (1,076 sqft) beach club, boasting an adjacent sauna, steam room and massage room.
Commissioned from Devonport Yachts by the billionaire and America's Cup-winning sailor, Ernesto Bertarelli, the vast 314ft (96m) VAVA II is the largest private yacht to be built in the UK. Of course, it has an impressive beach club– this one folds out on high-tech hinges.
ALFA NERO, at 266 feet (81m), built by Oceanco was designed by Carlo Nuvolari, with its beach club comprising a huge swimming pool with waterfall. The Swimming pool floor can be raised to become a dance floor or helipad. Now that's multi-tasking!
