The best superyacht bars
Christina O's sixties-style, Madmen-esque bar is one of the few spots on board preserved since the yacht was famously owned by Greek magnate Aristotle Onassis. This means 'Ari's bar', as it's referred to, still features engraved orca teeth for guests to hang their handbags on, as well as the large piece of sunken Spanish galleon timber that forms the bar and, most famously, the whale foreskin that covers the bar stools.
The main saloon and dining room on 68 metre Ragnar have room for up to 14 guests, while hosting a British pub-style bar. Guests can draw back curtains to reveal an ocean view or, alternatively, keep them shut when the lock-ins seep into the small hours.
Boardwalk's beach club bar has a TV above the drinks-making area so that guests can watch afternoon sports matches and enjoy a dip in the sea at halftime. This comes as no surprise given that its owner is quite the sporting fan and even owns an NBA team. Opposite the bar, four Ferrari-red SeaBobs hang side by side on the wall like a work of art.
The 77 metre "bronzed explorer" La Datcha's main saloon bar is an incredible, iceberg-looking structure. Its four stools have a sea-view and the alcohol-station is flanked by geometric wall designs. The ice-like bar is perfect for the northerly locations the yacht sails to, but not if guests are easily triggered by James Cameron's Titanic.
Most of the socialising that takes place on Feadship's 73 metre Lunasea happens in the saloon on the upper deck. Here, the white statuario marble bar looks over loose furniture by Holly Hunt and Promemoria while flooring is fumed eucalyptus and a Tai Ping silk rug.
The 83 metre White Rabbit features Art Deco references throughout her interiors. These are on full display around the huge bar in the main saloon, which is headed by a spectacular light feature that cleverly doubles as glass storage. The bar fully embraces the yacht's name with a gold leaf Alice in Wonderland scene in the ceiling.
The large sundeck of The Beast is a versatile space. It is home to a well-polished bar and teppanyaki grill - a favourite feature from the owner's previous superyacht, VvS1, which was then incorporated into the design of this 39 metre vessel.
