The Best Superyacht Pools in the World


Madsummer’s centrepiece swimming pool sits aft of the main deck, surrounded by sunpads and glass bulwarks. Positioning the swimming pool here freed up space in the beach club below and allows the owner to view the area from the private owner’s deck two decks above. Just like the upper saloon and observation lounge, the swimming pool area is furnished with the characteristic blues that are found throughout the Lürssen superyacht.

Cloud 9

The deep pool on the main deck of the 74 metre CRN custom yacht Cloud 9 contains 10,000 litres of water projecting wave patterns into the beach club below it. The swimming pool also had an influence on the interior styling by British studio Winch Design — a 1.5 metre deep lie-down sofa can be found in the adjacent saloon, which is ideal for relaxing after doing a couple of lengths.

Benetti's 47 metre Bacchanal features a custom walkaround sundeck swimming pool, lined with iridescent glass tiles that reflect the sun during the day and the pool's underwater lights at night. Al fresco dining for up to 12 guests and a teppanyaki grill complete the sundeck set up.

The 64 metre Attila features three pools, but the most striking by far is that on the aft end of the main deck, with glass walls and floor shedding light on to the beach club below. Measuring 5m by 3m, it holds 16,500 litres of water, equivalent to some 16.5 tonnes. The glass needed to be incredibly strong to resist the force from slopping water – in the case of Sanlorenzo yacht Attila, the glass is more than 2cm thick.

After you have visited Solandge’s sauna, steam room, massage room and gym, a few smug laps in the adjacent glass-backed pool will show off your toned physique in style. This is truly one of the best superyacht pools and spa havens to be found.

The eight metre sundeck pool contains 22 tonnes of fresh water warmed via waste heat recovery. It has a glass wall for watching grandchildren at play, and a skylight at the bottom which sits above the main staircase. Elandess won four gongs at the Boat International Design and Innovation Awards 2019 and was delivered in 2018 by Abeking and Rasmussen with exterior and interior design by Harrison Eidsgaard.

Galactica Super Nova

Heesen Yachts’ 70 metre flagship superyacht Galactica Super Nova, which was launched in 2016, boasts a large jet stream infinity pool ideal for swimming laps with a waterfall flowing down from the upper deck. The waterfall feature isn’t just good looking but creates an opaque screen that can be used for projecting films onto.

The aft of the sun deck is one of the most popular locations for fitting a superyacht pool and this picture of 40 metre Mondomarine Serenity shows exactly why. Stunning views out to sea above and below the surface are only broken by a slender grab rail, while the shimmering Bisazza blue tiles match nicely with the adjacent sun pad cushions.

Seven Sins

With a glass bottom and glass panels, the pool on the first Sanlorenzo 52 Steel yacht Seven Sins plays with transparencies, creating a spectacular effect in the superyacht beach club below.

Plvs Vltra

The large superyacht swimming pool on board the 74 metre Amels Limited Editions 242 yacht Plvs Vltra was one of the owner's most important requirements. A counter-current system allows guests to get a proper workout, while the adjacent sunloungers and bar area ensure there's plenty of room for unwinding after a serious swim.
