Ahpo | Lürssen Yachts | 115.1-metres | 2021

Impressive and brimming with details of distinguished craftsmanship, the 115.1-metre superyacht Ahpo, first delivered in 2021 by Lürssen Yachts, has mastered the art of onboard luxury. With interior design penned by Nuvolari Lenard, one of the superyacht's standout features is her hybrid beach club/wellness area, an opulent and exquisite space for guests to indulge in onboard. The beach club has a stylish bar, Jacuzzi, plunge pool, luxurious massage room, and a hammam. Each space is adorned with artisanal creations such as vibrant mosaic tile formations, curved metalwork, and handpicked natural furnishings crafted to stimulate a sense of peace. Ahpo's beach club brings guests closer to the water's edge while blurring the lines between an outdoor and indoor retreat, where everything is imaginable.

B2 | Abeking & Rasmussen| 85.65-metres | 2008

As radiant as the seascape it reflects, the 85.65-metre B2 superyacht is a floating oasis expanded across the entire aft deck. First delivered in 2008 by German yacht designers Abeking & Rasmussen, B2's beach club echoes that of a luxurious beach house with access to the water on both port and starboard.

As though plucked from a David Hockney Pop Art painting, the B2 beach club displays vibrant pops of colour, mirroring the recreational intention behind this bright aft deck space. The walls and deck are wrapped in natural materials like wood, linens, glass, and rattan, with the highlight being a splash of canary yellow upon the well-stocked bar. The B2 beach club is completed by a glass-bottomed pool on the main deck, forming the expansive ceiling for this abundant entertainment space perfected for pool parties, water sports, and aperitif tipples before dinner.

Faith | Feadship| 96.55-metres | 2016

Faith is one of the largest superyachts to be delivered by the Netherlands-based Feadship. First launched as Project Vertigo in 2016, the 96.55-metre superyacht is a "floating playground" with a beach club fully equipped with a gym, massage room, and an elevator to all decks. Faith's beach club is configured by the extensive 30-foot glass pool on the main deck, where the 8-foot deep end of the exceptional swimming pool dips down to form the transparent ceiling for the beach club below.

Faith's interiors were crafted by Chahan Interior Design and RWD, who opted for a classic nautical style — adorned with warm wooden surroundings and soft white textiles scattered with accents of royal blue. The expansive beach club is centred around the encaved wooden bar, which gives guests ultimate privacy. Completely open to the water, this beach club pays homage to the traditional navel style and provides ample amenities for opulent cocktail parties and family barbecues.

Andrea| CRN | 74-metres | 2017

CRN's exquisite 74-metre superyacht Andrea, previously Lady Jorgia and Cloud 9, was delivered by the Italian shipyard in 2017. The substantial fold-down beach club is the primed place to relish in your morning ritual.

The large beach club showcases handcrafted tables, an elongated coffee bar, sun loungers, and an external shower with an extended sea-level platform. Timeless styling in the form of sumptuous furnishings and contemporary art features throughout, creating an elegant and comfortable atmosphere penned by a collaboration between Winch Design and Zuccon International Project.

The focal point of Andreas beach club is her espresso bar. Carefully crafted from variations of oak interwoven with flecks of mother-of-pearl, this luxurious furnishing allows guests to blissfully sip on a cappuccino after enjoying a morning dip. Andrea's beach club epitomises the joys of a superyacht where everyday moments, such as a morning coffee, are celebrated in the utmost luxurious conditions.

Here Comes The Sun| Amels | 89-metres | 2016

The largest superyacht ever built by Amels with a design by Tim Heywood at 89-metres, Here Comes The Sun, is impressive inside and out and features a beach club with boundless opportunities for those onboard. First delivered by the Dutch shipyard in 2016, the superyacht returned to Amels and Damen Yachting to undergo a radical one-year refit in 2020, extending the yacht from 83-metres to 89-metres, making way for a much larger aft deck.

Her replenished beach club boasts a sauna, steam room, plunge pool, massage room, and hairdressing salon. This classically designed beach club oozes elegance with dedicated details, even down to the bespoke light fixtures, creating a timeless yet homely ambiance. Open platforms on both sides of the beach club unveil panoramic views enabling abundant natural light to flood the space. An impressive bar against the forward bulkhead sweeps the entire wall expansion. Seharahn gold and marble furnishings punctuate the sophisticated beach club design, which pays homage to the original characteristics of the penned interiors by renowned Winch Design. Textured off-white hued walls compliment the plush white upholstery, forming a seating arrangement for indoors and outdoors, which is at the heart of this tranquil space.

Tatiana| Bilgin Yachts| 80-metres | 2020

The expansive 80-metre Tatiana, was first delivered in 2020 by Bilgin Yachts. The superyacht has a total volume of 1,689 GT with an impressive amount of space dedicated to the multi-level 110-square metre beach club.

Unlike other superyacht builds, the original owner of Tatiana was driven by the prospect of the beach club concept and set out to design a superyacht with the beach club acting as the core focus of the design process. Located on the lower deck starting from the centre, Tatiana's beach club is uniquely connected to the main saloon via a work of art sculptural staircase. This design choice is unorthodox. It allows for a subliminal flow throughout the yacht and further interconnects the beach club to the rest of the living quarters. Featuring two swimming pools, a fully-equipped gym, a cinema and a sauna on the portside lower deck. Guests onboard can relish in the delights of alfresco dining and outdoor activities. To top it all off the incredible swimming pools within the beach club are constructed to be a perfect temperature all year round.

Aquila| Derecktor | 85.06-metres | 2010

The Derecktor superyacht, Aquila has a substantial length of 85.6m. Delivered in the US in 2010, Aquila, previously named Cakewalk, is the largest British refit project to date by the renowned Pendennis in 2016. The UK-based shipyard honed in on Aquilas' beach club and gave her a makeover which included flooding the area with natural light courtesy of additional skylights along with a fully equipped gym and an array of storage for many water toys with access from the starboard stairwell.

Guests onboard can also indulge in a family movie night within the beach club space and relaxation can be taken to new heights with an extensive spa. The neutral interior aesthetic was penned by Dalton Design, which opted for a timeless and calming style. Off-white upholstered seating and stripped-back wooden decking carve out a space whereby the modern world becomes muted. Warm-hued lighting matched with soft beige furnishings overflows onto the deck area, where a sitting space provides endless views to gaze upon after a midweek massage or steam.

Aquijo| Oceanco| 86-metres | 2016

Aquijo is an 86-metre super sailing yacht built by Oceanco in collaboration with Vitters Shipyard, delivered in 2016. Aquijo is the largest high-performance, ketch-rigged sailing yacht built to-date, and the sixth largest sailing yacht in the world.

One of her outstanding features is her substantial beach club – rarely found on sailing boats – which features modern interior design by Dölker + Voges GmbH reminiscent of a cosmopolitan apartment transcending the traditional sailing yacht spirit to new elevated heights. Her expansive beach club includes a spa area with a steam room, a sauna, a lounge area and panoramic views. A notable feature within the Aquijo beach club is the centralised Jacuzzi taking centre stage whereby guests can enjoy expansive seascape views from the warmth of the bubbling water. Extending forward from the serene spa area is an impressive swim platform, offering guests direct access to the sea.
