Enjoying a tipple in the bar onboard your superyacht charter is the ne plus ultra of luxury. Intimate, and sequestered from the crowds found at shore, yacht charter guests can sit back, relax, and relish the unfettered freedom that comes with having your own superyacht bar with no closing time.
But which ones on charter vessels stand out from the rest? From sultry Art-Deco delights to retro New-York styled interiors, here are our favorite charter yacht bars.
The bar's backdrop is an ever-changing LED wall which adds to the yacht's futuristic ambience
Perennial yacht charter favourite superyacht MYSKY's bar is a real galactic thrill. Guests enter from the main deck aft to be immediately greeted by the vessel's stellar drinking spot, which backs onto an ever-changing LED wall that displays whatever you wish: from atmospheric scenes or to even images taken during your vacation. Coupled with its playful take on monochromatic styling: all black marble, backlit white onyx and glossy Makassar ebony finishes in circular forms, it's endlessly chic.
Spend cocktail hour under a canopy of stars in superyacht HOME's sundeck bar. This glowing architectural masterpiece comprises of 16 slabs of translucent Hi-Macs moulded together which radiate a kaleidoscope of dazzling colour from dawn to dusk. Intended to resemble clouds, you'll certainly feel sky-high when luxuriating in this hangout after a day's sun-drenched exploration.
Superyacht ROCK.IT's sports not one, but three bars on her decks, all of which have serious wow factor. Exuding Art Deco sophistication, the star of the show is the one located on the main saloon aft. Floor-to-ceiling panels of book-matched cherry wood and marble glisten in the sunlight, it's curved onyx bar aglow thanks to impressive backlighting. Sink into one of the cloud-like armchairs situated opposite, or take your margarita to the outdoor C-shaped seating just a champagne cork pop away.
Charter yacht LIONESS V's myriad bars entertain guests with great panache
Motor yacht LIONESS V's bridge deck bars (indoor and outdoor) entertain guests with great panache, outfitted in uber-chic ivory flourishes, light stone and glossy ebony woods throughout. Have an aperitif at the shaded outdoor bar, before venturing just a few steps for a five-star dinner alfresco. Make the most of the long summer evenings and end a perfect day meandering a few steps further forward to the elevated pool area, as dedicated staff bring an endless whirl of refreshments.
Superyacht FAITH is a 97m floating playground that leaves no stone unturned when it comes to delivering an outstanding charter experience. Her bar located in the exceptionally big beach club is no exception. The sensational glass-bottom swimming pool forms the bar's spectacular ceiling, providing a simply magical backdrop to any beverage consumed, as well as being the ideal setting for glamorous dinner parties.
Yacht charter guests also have the fabulous sundeck bar to revel in too, which is home to a fully enclosed gym, Jacuzzi, alfresco dining and bar with pizza oven and BBQ. You'll be utterly spoilt for choice!
Once belonging to billionaire Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, this storied vessel has long been a paradise for the rich and famous, and one of the few charter yachts that accommodate more than 12 guests. One of the most iconic areas on this classic yacht is the legendary Ari's Bar, named in tribute to Onassis as it was one of his favourite places to have a whisky.
A teak-lined beauty and cosy socialising spot, it boasts a number of truly unique features. From its rope-covered bar, supposedly sourced from the timbers of an old Spanish galleon, whale's teeth that form handles around the bar's edge, to the bar stools made from a whale's foreskin — an amusing talking point on many a yacht charter vacation. Superyacht CHRISTINA O also has a marvellous circular outdoor bar too — the perfect pitstop before dining under the stars.
Undeniably distinctive, superyacht SALUZI's bars are scene-stealers. Decorated in a pop art, beach house style, with vibrant flashes of colour dotted throughout, this vessel boasts a hip karaoke bar on the upper deck (a highly unusual feature for a charter yacht) and is replete with a casino on deck, festooned in a glowing array of neon lights. She's absolutely destined for unparalleled partying on the water.
