Offices on board are an essential part of any proper superyacht, allowing owners to catch up with business affairs while still afloat. We round up six of the very best, starting with Genesi.
The refit designers at Turquoise Yachts who worked on 95m Oceanco superyacht Indian Empress chose to tuck an open-plan office into the space behind the VIP suite on the bridge deck — an efficient use of what had been a lobby.
One of the world’s largest superyachts, Indian Empress was launched in 2000 with Mark Berryman interiors featuring accommodation for 12 guests and 30 crew.
The compact, chic and private-feeling study, which lies a few steps down from the main deck master on 44.8m yacht for sale Logica, is a savvy use of an otherwise featureless corridor space. Logica also features a foredeck swimming pool and accommodation for 12 guests split across six yachts.
The study in the bright upper saloon of 44.2m Moon Sand — Feadship's contemporary masterpiece — proves that a workplace doesn’t need to be cut off from onboard life, and the Linley desk is a thing of beauty as much as practicality. This family-friendly yacht was launched in 2015, with a lively interior by Bannenberg & Rowell that compliments the bespoke furniture on board.
Suerte — the stylish 69m from Italian yard Tankoa Yachts — has a maximum cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots, and the excellent office means that the owner can choose to stay on board during long passages and still get plenty of work done. This area is separated from the suite by rotating foils inside a glass wall, which protect privacy when it is wanted and open up to give a more airy feeling, while always letting in light.
The massive owner’s deck on 101.5m Symphony — one of the best Feadship superyachts of all time — doesn’t just have his and hers bathrooms, there are his and hers offices too, with incredible floor-to-ceiling windows for great views out to sea. The interior décor on the Dutch yard's flagship was created by Francois Zuretti.
