Having a dog on board isn't just great for the owner, it also provides something a little out of the ordinary for the crew to enjoy too. The crew of 43 metre Mondomarine superyacht Bina experienced this recently when they shared this image of a handsome Golden Retriever yachtspotting from Bina's sundeck.
Russian tennis pro Anna Kournikova loves her dog Chessie as much as she does her sport - a fact clearly evident from the sheer number of times he features on her social media accounts. This lucky pet is also frequently invited on his owner's luxury yacht vacations and is seen here taking in the view over the ocean in Florida and being subjected to a little on board fancy dress.
Like any celebrity worth their salt, Pudsey, the Border Collie, Bichon Frise and Chinese Crested powderpuff cross which won 2012's Britain's Got Talent competition, flies strictly private. In this image, which judge Simon Cowell shared to social media, the pair are enjoying the high life on Cowell's personal plane during a trip to Los Angeles to promote Pudsey's first film Pudsey the Dog: the Movie.
There are possibly no pets quite so at home on a superyacht as those of Giancarlo Giammetti and Valentino Garavani. The fashionable pair are rarely seen without their two Pomeranians, Poppy and Blu, and pug Moon. The trio even join their owners on board their 46 metre Picchiotti yacht T.M. Blue One. Here Poppy proves herself the perfect model as she poses next to the yacht's logo.
Fashion designer Valentino Garavani is almost as famous for his love of pugs as he is for his clothes - as this moment of dog and owner sharing a peaceful moment on board T.M. Blue One in Italy demonstrates.
Superyacht-loving model Vita Sidorkina may be used to taking centre stage in pictures but her limelight is well and truly stolen in this cute snap of the Russian model sunbathing with a handsome labrador on board a luxury yacht in Miami.
They may not be travelling in the lap of luxury but it's hard not to have your heart warmed by the story of Guirec Soudée - the 24-year-old man currently sailing the world with his pet chicken Monique on board a 30-year-old sailboat. The pair started their journey with a transatlantic crossing to St Barths in 2014 before heading to Greenland and wintering in the Arctic with no means of communication in 2015. Now back in civilisation, they are currently preparing to sail to Alaska with their adventure set to be turned into a series of books on their return.
Of course, on board doesn't just refer to yachts and, with two maids, an on-call vet, a yearly income of over £2 million, a Chanel handbag named in her honour and over 134,000 followers on social media, it seems only right that Choupette Lagerfeld should travel exclusively by private jet. Owned by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, she is almost certainly the most famous pet around so it is surely only a matter of time before we see snaps of her sunning herself on a celebrity superyacht vacation.
