Superyachts for charter with the coolest water toy collections

Whether you're a fitness fanatic or water sports lover, no charter is complete without a deep dive into a superyacht's toy box. And with new high-tech toys being released each year – from Flyboards and Hoverboards that let you float above the water to ever-advancing personal submersibles to dive to the depths  – there's plenty on offer when it comes to water sports on a superyacht charter. Plus if you're keen to pick up a new skill, you'll often find a member of the crew on board who's also a professional sports instructor or personal trainer. From classic collections filled with Jet Skis and waterskiing gear to toy boxes specialising in deep-sea diving or inflatable fun, we round up the top superyachts for charter now with the most amazing water toy collections.

Geco’s distinctive exterior is not the only thing that sets her apart from the crowd, as her packed toybox offers plenty of unique opportunities for experiences above and below the surface. Guests can start their helicopter sightseeing tours on board with the touch-and-go helipad, or dive to the depths in a scuba session. Water sports also on offer include waterskiing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, snorkelling and spotting colourful marine life from clear-bottomed kayaks. For more high-octane activities, Geco boasts state-of-the-art tech and toys, including a Flyboard, Jetsurf, SeaBobs, Jet Skis and even electric bikes for onshore adventures.

Art-filled interiors offer equally exciting amenities, with a special “Buddha bar,” for cocktails, an outdoor cinema and a beach club offering al fresco dining right next to the water.
