The best wireless speakers for your superyacht

If you've designed a perfect party yacht then a great set of speakers is an absolute essential. Whether relaxing on the beach club or dancing into the early hours, don't let poor sound quality or messy wires ruin your fun with our edit of the best wireless speakers for superyachts.

Bang & Olufsen Beosound 1

Designed by Torsten Valeur to offer ultimate portability without compromising on sound quality, the clever aluminium structure of the Beosound 1 boasts 360-degree sounds in a chic, unobtrusive package. Multiroom technology and integrated access to apps including Spotify, Deezer, QPlay and TuneIn make it ideal for use on board while an impressive 16-hour battery life means you can take the music where ever you go. Plus, it comes in four colour ways for seamless integration into your yacht interiors.

£1,085, bang-olufsen.com

Kef Egg

These work equally well as a standalone desktop sound system or as a multi-room solution. Each one channels lossless audio direct from a Bluetooth-enabled source, be it your phone or your hi-fi. It even contains its own amp and DAC circuitry to provide the requisite oomph to your preferred playlist’s highs and lows.

£350, kef.com

Master & Dynamic MA770

The first speaker from luxe headphone specialist Master & Dynamic, the MA770 was designed in collaboration with internationally-renowned architect David Adjaye - a pedigree evidenced by its modern, sculptural profile. Constructed in a concrete composite that promises advanced acoustic benefits, the speaker is fitted with top-of-the-line components and Chromecast for multi-room link up.

£1,600, masterdynamic.co.uk

Sonos Play:1

Looking to put a wireless speaker in every room without breaking the bank? The hugely popular Sonos system offers rich, room-filling sound from a compact speaker with multi-room and single use capability. The more streamlined of Sonos' two wireless speakers, the Play:1 can be connected to an Amazon Echo or Dot device for voice-controlled music on demand and comes with a variety of mounting options ideal for irregularly shaped superyacht cabins.

£149, sonos.com

Bose SoundLink Revolve

At just 15.2cm high, Bose's pocket speaker is ideal for packing for days on shore. It boasts a 12 hour battery life, integrated Siri and Google Now and a cylindrical design that provides 360-degree sound making it ideal for placing in the centre of groups. Cruising with kids? The SoundLink Revolve is water and shock resistant so little music lovers can play their favourites worry-free.

£179.95, bose.co.uk

Devialet Gold Phantom

If you like your music loud than few wireless speakers offer more than Devialet's Gold Phantom. A whopping 4,500W of power translates into a sound pressure level of 108dB/m - roughly the same as your average private jet. And, while less portable than its counterparts at 11.4kg, what it loses in weight it makes up for in style with a striking curved design and 22 karat gold-plated covers. You can also link up to 24 Gold Phantoms together and control them via your phone for unrivalled surround sound.

£2,190, devialet.com

Ultimate Ears Boom 2

One of the few wireless speakers designed with waterproof capabilities in mind, the UE Boom 2 can be submerged in depths up to one metre for 30 minutes meaning it can be used anywhere from pool to shower with complete confidence. A 15 hour battery life, integrated Siri and Google Now and 360-degree sound make it primed for modern life while those who really want to get the party started will be pleased to know that up to 150 UE speakers in the various Boom ranges can be connected for the ultimate experience.

£169.99, ultimateears.com

Samsung R7

While Samsung’s product names don’t get any better, this positively alien WiFi and Bluetooth-enabled speaker is a remarkable show of intent. Using proprietary Ring Radiator technology, it delivers a completely wraparound sound-field – meaning everyone in the room gets to enjoy the same degree of sound quality, at the same time.

£299, samsung.com

Bower & Wilkins Zeppelin

Big enough to fill a large room with quality audio but small enough to sit comfortably on a cabin coffee table, Bowers & Wilkins' next generation of wireless speaker is a great choice for those looking for something substantial yet portable. Complete with AirPlay and Bluetooth, as well as Bowers & Wilkins' custom Control app, the Zeppelin is compatible with most mainstream devices.

£499, bowers-wilkins.co.uk
