The Best Superyacht Sundecks in the World
1/13
Bacchanal

Offering the best views on board, not to mention plenty of space for fitting a spa pool, the sundeck is often the centrepiece of a superyacht’s design. We take a look at ten of the very best superyacht sundecks in the world, starting with Bacchanal...

A custom walkaround swimming pool resides forward on the sundeck and is lined with iridescent glass tiles that reflect the sun during the day and the pool's underwater lights at night. Offering excellent options for entertaining and dining al fresco, there's a table seating up to 12 guests and a bar fronting an outdoor galley complete with a teppanyaki grill.

Amadea

Amadea's sundeck is the “party area” according to designer Espen Øino. The pool can be converted into a stage for private gigs and equipment can be plugged into the yacht's audio system. Alternatively, guests can use the area of al fresco relaxation in the sun.

Elandess

The sundeck was an area of huge importance to the owner of Elandess who specifically requested a place capable of supporting various activities and several generations of guests. The expansive sunpad doubles as observation seating, while a large dining area sits on starboard opposite a bar on the portside. The pool meanwhile holds 22 tonnes of fresh water and has a glass wall for watching grandchildren at play.

Galactica Super Nova

Masterfully integrated into the sleek profile of this sporty 70 metre Heesen superyacht, the sundeck of Galactica Super Nova is linked visually and physically to the open bow. Sliding glass and a hardtop bimini make this an ideal space for entertaining, both during the heat of the day and late at night.

11.11

The sundeck on 63 metre Benetti 11.11 was partially finished when the original client walked away just ten months before delivery. Her current owner saw this as a great opportunity and had the upper deck rebuilt with a spa pool made from fibreglass, surrounded by sunpads, as well as a stone-clad cocktail bar and an intimate seating area, complete with kitchenette.

Jetsetter

The debut model in Dynamiq Yachts' configurable D4 range, 39 metre Jetsetter boasts a superyacht sundeck that measures an incredible 20 metres long. Designer Sergei Dobroserdov explains that this area is comparable to the upper deck space you would usually expect to find on a 60 metre superyacht.

Those looking to work out in the sun can avail themselves of the exercise bikes or treadmill, which are situated right next to the forward superyacht spa pool so you can quickly unwind afterwards with a relaxing soak. Back aft is a sheltered dining area, which is protected from the elements by a custom hardtop and two sliding glass doors amidships.
