On-Water Workouts: Standout superyacht gyms

There’s no need to ditch your fitness and wellbeing regime at sea, as our round up of the world’s finest superyacht gyms proves.

Skat's sleek gym

Skat's indoor gym allows the theme of clean, crisp interior design to flow throughout the space. This ocean view secluded spot offers a health kick escape,  while the top deck area offers an alternative space for outdoor workouts as well as a spa pool to unwind and relax in.

Explorer yacht La Datcha's lower deck aft hosts a wellness centre with spa and fully equipped gym, giving guests on board a chance to unwind and keep fit whilst at sea. Jellyfish-shaped lamps from Wired Custom Lighting in the gym hang above as you work up a sweat before unwinding in the spa pool. 

YXT 24 Evolution's ocean-view gym

Stocked with the very best equipment, the spacious gym on board the 24 metre Lynx Yachts YXT 24 Evolution looks out over the ocean and leads directly onto the beach platform.

Lady S's bridge deck gym

The extensively stocked gym on board Lady S sits on the bridge deck and overlooks the aft helipad. This is one of two gyms on board. Lady S is also equipped with a dedicated gym for the crew.

Cloudbreak’s beach club gym

Given the rugged exterior aesthetic of the 72.25 metre Abeking & Rasmussen explorer yacht Cloudbreak, it should come as little surprise that she packs a fully-stocked superyacht gym, complete with two exercise bikes, a treadmill and kettle bells. Situated in the beach club, this premium workout space means that guests can enjoy their exercise regimen in close proximity to the water — the option of a refreshing dip is only a few short steps away.

The spa-like gym experience on board High Power III

Flanked by a sauna, massage room and Turkish bath, the superyacht gym on the Rossinavi High Power III (previously named Numptia)  makes hard work part of a more relaxing spa experience. There is still plenty of high-spec Technogym kit to get in a good workout, but it's a more peaceful setting than your typical high-octane gym atmosphere.

A yacht gym fit for the world's fastest man. This sprawling exercise space on board the Lürssen superyacht Quattroelle was apparently designed by star Olympic runner Usain Bolt. It sits up top and features a spa pool forward for a post work-out soak to sooth sore muscles.

Wheels' sea-facing gym

The 75.5 metre Wheels was designed for an owner who loves fitness, so carries a dedicated gym space with all the trinkets and toys necessary for a workout on the water. The air-conditioned area hosts weights, a treadmill, a bike, a yoga ball and three types of resistance machines, plus full length windows give an excellent view out to sea while you work up a sweat. For when it's time to wind-down, there's also an intimate massage room on board.

The converted captain's cabin gym on board Elysium

On Elysium, the standard layout of the 131 has been torn to shreds. The stairs, which usually lead to a large saloon aft with sofas and a bar, have been completely rerouted and the skipper's cabin has been turned into a gym housing bikes and cross-trainers. The saloon meanwhile has been transformed into the owner’s cabin and is smaller than the designated owner's cabin at the bow. But as owner Ron Gibbs says: "If you’re going to do overnight cruises, do not put your master cabin in the bow. In my configuration, it is so stable and so quiet. You also have your own private deck behind you. In the morning it’s great, too: into the gym, then straight to the shower, change…”

Vanish's sundeck gym

Vanish's owners were so thrilled with their new-build 66.25 metre Feadship that their inaugural two-week cruise turned into an entire season packed with four Atlantic crossings. With so much time spent on board, it was fortunate that the owners had the foresight to install a generous gym. They even made tweaks to Harrison Eidsgaard's original design which placed a small gym inside the aft beach club area. Instead, they asked for it to be moved onto the sundeck's enclosed area, allowing it to be larger.
