It serves to connect guests aboard with the outside marine world. World-renowned designers strive to create the most comfortable, spacious, luxurious and striking aft deck to achieve the ultimate. Here are some of the best superyachts and their cool aft decks.

Motor Yacht A | 119m | Blohm + Voss | 2009

Not many have seen close up shots of motor yacht A, neither know the exact details of her interior design. However, we all know that Motor Yacht A is a unique vessel, with a head-spinning exterior created by Philippe Starck. The futuristic, extraterrestrial, dazzling, beautiful or unusual (call it what want) exterior looks particularly interesting from the aft. Unlike other mega yachts, Blohm + Voss Motor Yacht A does not show off her sunbathing spaces, large swimming pools and alfresco dining areas. If you look at her sister ship Sailing Yacht A, it seems that their owner Andrey Melnichenko appreciates privacy.

Superyacht In Focus: The Elegant 67m Charter Yacht Anna

May 22, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

CharterWorld yacht charter specialists are the real experts when it comes to luxury yacht charters aboard crewed superyachts. They have a lot to offer in terms of experience, advocacy and advice for charterers. This time they stepped aboard the luxury 67-metre superyacht Anna. Motor yacht Anna was built by the bespoke shipbuilder Feadship and has just gone through a general refit. According to our charter brokers, Anna is an absolutely amazing choice when it comes to yacht charter vacation this summer with family and friends.

Interior living spaces feature sophisticated decor and an inviting atmosphere. “Most of the furniture (if not all) throughout the yacht has lovely discrete Mother-of-Pearl inlays, and the A/C is kept on AT ALL TIMES to keep her humidity rate at 60% to protect the wood and marquetry. There are mobile temperature centres everywhere that are linked to pagers and phones, and an alarm will notify the crew if it varies by 0.3! Parquet flooring is beautiful and in great condition. So is all the furniture, wooden features, and everything really. Darkwood is used throughout, but because the ceilings are high and rooms quite vast, it leaves a comfortable, spacious feeling. Even the engine room, crew mess and cabins are all exceedingly clean and tidy,” mentioned our yacht charter specialist Solenne Vaudin d’Imécourt.

The main salon is well-appointed and includes a generous, comfortable lounge with soft furnishings. One of the unique features of the yacht is the option of converting the salon into a voguish disco club, which has the lights, smoke machine, DJ booth and speakers. The formal dining room is port side and has sliding doors out towards a drop down terrace. The dining room is serviced by a hidden pantry connected to the main galley below.

Spotless and maintained to the highest standards, motor yacht Anna offers lavish accommodation for 12 guests in 6 cabins.The master suite boasts a private study, opulent bathroom facilities and an enormous wardrobe. It also has a lounge above, which overlooks the bedroom, and boasts a generous couch, video conferencing, TV and great outside areas. Guests aboard were also thrilled to find a golf machine on the deck, which pops out golf balls and surely adds extra fun to the entertainment options while on a luxury yacht charter holiday.

“The master suite is breathtaking: It is impossible to capture how high the ceiling is in a photo,” CharterWorld’s Solenne Vaudin d’Imécourt, commented. “It’s at least double height and I believe you could fit four or five of me, each standing on each others’ shoulders… but then again, I’m not tall! It is huge, has an impressive en-suite bathroom and dressing, and its own lounge above with a skylight.”

New from Feadship: 35M Superyacht CID hits water, ready to cruise

May 15, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

Yet another fantastic launch news to add to this year’s increasingly exciting superyacht portfolio: 35-metre motor yacht CID, built by the renowned Feadship shipyard has hit the water today in the presence of her proved owner who has overseen the entire design and built process with great involvement. CID has explored the local Dutch canals on her maiden voyage before undertaking the two-day sea trial in the North Sea and around the Wadden Islands.

The yacht was designed to accommodate Feadship’s client and his guests in comfort while enjoying visiting bays and marinas normally not accessible by larger vessels. CID has been designed with huge glass panels and Mocca brown exterior features, resulting in a very sleek vessel with a masculine profile.

Following her delivery, CID is planning on cruising the Fjords and the rest of the Mediterranean before moving onto Mexico’s west coast for the winter and on to the Baja California peninsula the following summer. She is well fitted for moving around shallow areas as well as cruising from one destination to another efficiently. She is a top speed of 20 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.

The yacht will be serviced by a crew of six while the Owner will spend much of the tie at the helm himself. For this reason, a fixed Bimini has been created on the flybridge to offer shade when driving CID from here. The top deck flybridge is the largest in terms of length ever done on a Feadship vessel. There is also a huge table seating sixteen guests, which makes part of one of five great areas offering al fresco dining. In addition, sun beds that recline as well as a large pop-out TV can be found here. The hydraulic swim platform is ideal for easy access to the water to enjoy the water toys CID carries. There are also two tenders stored on board for the guests and the owner.

The interior was designed with practical use in mind. Bannenberg & Rowell created a simple, yet beautiful interior, which features wooden floors, as well as some details of oak, walnut and wenge. Marty Lowe created stylish and sophisticated decor with soft furnishing, artworks to achieve a calm atmosphere of the West Coast.
