7 of the coolest features on Spain's largest superyacht Renaissance

11 December 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

An exclusive look inside the 112-metre Renaissance has been offered by her central agency for charter, Burgess. Both the largest private yacht built in Spain and one of the world's most expensive charter yachts, Renaissance is quite the feat for Freire – a commercial shipyard that has built only one private yacht in the past. Designed inside and out by Bannenberg & Rowell, BOAT takes a closer look at her coolest features...

1. Six decks' worth of dining options 

With 7,200 GT to play with (and six decks available to guests), al fresco spaces abound on Renaissance. Culinary offers include a sushi bar, an outdoor pizza oven and two barbecues positioned right beside the dining areas for a "chef's table" experience. For more formal occasions, a double-height dining room is found on the main deck, a feature that adds "a sense of theatre" according to Burgess.

2. A deck dedicated entirely to wellness

Amenities include a sauna, steam room, hot and cold plunge pools, a spacious gym (with an equipment list that would "amaze an elite athlete") and even a ballet bar with a mirror for stretching. There are also two treatment rooms and a dedicated hair and beauty salon.

3. The "palatial" owner's deck with private terrace

Renaissance can accommodate up to 80 people (guests and crew)

Renaissance has a deck dedicated entirely to her owner, at the heart of which lies a 60-square-metre cabin with his-and-hers bathrooms (both with side deck access), a media room and a lounge with bar and dining. Forward, you'll find the private terrace with a Jacuzzi for six, sunloungers and lounge seating, whereas the equally-private aft deck is primed for 12-person dinner parties. 

4. The cinema

This private cinema seats up to 19 guests, with imagery revealing plush, neutral-toned sofa seating, recliners and ambient lighting. On balmier nights, a second cinema can be found outdoors.

5. The decked-out beach club

The spacious beach club is described as a "destination in itself", outfitted with a bar, waterside dining and several lounge areas. It's also the best spot onboard for ocean-lovers, with lateral-opening terraces both port and starboard.

6. The swimming pool

Renaissance's sprawling swimming pool measures 10 metres long and five metres wide. Flanked by sunloungers and sofa seating, it offers uninhibited sea views off the stern and spacious, fixed sunpads forward. 

7. The helipad (and other toys)

This superyacht bow has been transformed into a commercially-certified helicopter landing pad – and the impressive capacity continues, with enough onboard storage for an "armada of all the latest watertoys" and a fleet of custom-built tenders.

Renaissance will be available for charter in spring 2024. Unsurprisingly, she clinched the top entry for Spain in this year's biggest superyacht launches.
