From superyacht gyms and spas to cinemas and nightclubs, many rooms on modern superyachts are designed around the owner’s passions and the way they choose to live their life. As part of the new Boat International Media bookazine Futureyachts, we asked some of the industry’s best-connected individuals to predict where this trend for lifestyle-specific rooms will go next.
Pascale Reymond of Reymond Langton Design argues that the market for these specialist rooms is principally above the 80 metre mark. “You can do special feature rooms on yachts under 65 metres, particularly a superyacht spa and an underwater room, and still have six suites, but the market is well above the 80 metre category.
“We have designed a host of fun, unusual special-purpose rooms on the new 98 metre Abeking & Rasmussen yacht Aviva, such as an indoor paddle tennis court,” she reveals.
