The global authority in superyachting
The superyacht offices for business on board
From Luminosity's conference room to Neninka's celestial study, we take a look at some of the swankiest offices afloat for those who are lucky enough to be 'WFY' (working from yacht) this past year.
Oriental influences bring a sense of calm to the superyacht office on board 70 metre Joy, with a bonsai tree acting as the focal point of this design. A nearby balcony also draws the eye, and unlike most fold-out superyacht terraces, this one is purely mechanical, with no hydraulics needed. Launched by Feadship in 2016, Joy can accommodate up to 12 guests and 19 crewmembers.
Here Comes The Sun
The owner's office on board the 87 metre Amels motor yacht Here Comes the Sun has a fixed balcony with the desk positioned with views of the seascape as it passes by. The space is styled by British studio Winch Design using warm natural oak with an eel skin feature wall behind the bookshelves and pony skin on the ceiling.
The interior of Ace was designed in the style of a contemporary grand hotel, inspired by the glamourous escapes of the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo or Le Bristol Paris. Most of the spaces on board are kept light and fresh with cream paneling, ivory silk and pearlescent details. But some areas, such as the owner's study, are deliberately moody with an atmospheric “jewellery box” feel.
The Wider 150
Offices on board are an essential part of any proper superyacht, allowing owners to catch up with business affairs while still afloat. The study on this 46 metre from Wider Yachts can be shut off from the owner’s suite at the touch of a button via a soundproof sliding door — a fitting feature on board this super-quiet Italian superyacht.
The massive owner’s deck on 101.5 metre 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.
Launched in 2013, the 62.4 metre Amels superyacht Event was a top secret project until 2015 when she was put up for sale and her Nuvolari Lenard interior could be revealed for the first time. One of the star attractions is the master suite with its study-cum-office area. High-gloss surfaces, dark leather and pale woodwork create a strong sense of contrast, while a pop-up television provides welcome distraction when the time for work is over.
