The vast 90m2 owner's suite on board 57.7 metre Amels superyacht Volpini 2 is equipped with a fold-out terrace on the starboard side for an intimate spot to take in the views while allowing the ocean breeze to rush into the cabin. 

The terrace can deploy in just a few minutes at the touch of a button, with the stainless steel and rope railings stored in a nearby cupboard while underway. The space can fit two chairs and a table for drinks or a light meal.

Launched in 2021 with a design that is focused on long-term cruising, Sanlorenzo's 61.5 metre Cloud 9 offers a number of secluded spots for owners and guests to retreat and relax while on board. 

In particular, the owners wanted a totally private terrace, which is precisely what they got. Accessible only through the large owner’s suite, the terrace features its own sunbathing area and spa pool.

A sailor since childhood, CeFeA's owner knew what he was looking for from the design and took a "hands on" approach when helping style the 34 metre superyacht with Solaris.

CeFeA’s private terrace aft is accessible only through the large sliding windows of the master’s suite. This allows the owner to enjoy complete privacy as well as undisturbed access to his cabin.

Bilgin Yachts’ 80 metre flagship is the result of a long-standing collaboration by the owner and the family-run Turkish shipyard. The statesman-like interior was designed by H2 Yacht Design, with the aim to provide a space for board meetings and special conferences.

The owner enjoys a private top-deck terrace, which they enter through sliding doors from the large suite. Tatiana also features two more side terraces, which unfold when the yacht is anchored.

Club M

Club M features a clever terrace that offers an extension of the owner’s suite. Instead of folding down, a portion of the hull folds upwards and a teak balcony extends from a slot hidden beneath the suite’s wooden floor on the starboard side. This is all in step with the owner’s wish for seclusion. “My wife and I cherish our privacy,” he says, which was one of the primary driving factors in the design of the superyacht.

Designed for experienced sailors planning to spend months at a time on board, a terrace, and the privacy, quiet and incredible views that come with it, was a must for the owners of 50 metre Rossinavi Endeavour 2.  The fold-out balcony is located on the starboard side of the owner's suite and the elegant style of interior designer Achille Salvagni extends to this area thanks to a Gio Ponti chair sourced at auction and featuring a low centre of gravity so guests feels less roll. Endeavour 2 is currently listed for charter with Ocean Independence

Bartali

Bartali, The 45.72 metre flagship from Wider Yachts, is packed with technological innovation and the main deck master suite is a perfect example of this. To starboard, a broad window powers open automatically for fresh air under way but close that window and a much larger, marble-clad section of superstructure folds out. Touch the button for longer and teak decking slides out from under the floor and railings rise up.

It is an immaculate superyacht terrace with decking flush to the interior floor. It looks and feels like a permanent feature, not a temporary fix, and yet it’s easy enough for an owner to erect without the help of crew. Just as importantly, since it will be closed most of the time, when stowed you wouldn’t guess it was there.

Hampshire

The balcony on Feadship’s 66.25 metre superyacht Hampshire is built-in under the master suite. Touch a button and it extends out and the floor rises to sit flush with the suite, offering a seamless transition to the balcony and superb views from two deck chairs. The original owners for whom Hampshire was built were keen on getting as close to the water as possible, so the terrace was a key feature for delivering on this request.
