Unveiling The World Of Flying Fox: The Pinnacle Of Superyacht Charter Experience

Redefining Experience at Sea

22 January 2024

If Flying Fox, the largest superyacht on the market, could speak, she would politely request that her guests disregard any previous experiences of yacht charter that they may have.

As an iconic vessel that raised the industry’s standards to heights once thought unrealistic, she would be right to do so, as she truly offers a charter experience like no other.

Imagine arriving by sea or air to the long, flowing lines of this Lurssen masterpiece, where world class design by Espen Øino and Mark Berryman creates a distinctive, curved sculpture on the water.



Immediately on sight, guests will realise that this is more than a superyacht, it is an achievement of their dreams and ambitions of how to experience endless adventure and fun with their loved ones.

Guests boarding at the enormous swim platform will be greeted by an impressive resort style beach club and wellness centre, which includes a split-level spa stretching over two levels between the main deck and the beach club.

Here, guests will find the world’s first -110°c CryoSauna ever installed on a superyacht. No need to be a professional athlete to enjoy this rapid invigoration of the whole body! We recommend you follow this with a trip to the ‘wet massage room’ where you will lie under a warm rain shower while the therapist envelops you in a full body massage.

The wellness facilities on board Flying Fox rival those of any large hotel. Guests will discover hydro baths, hammam, sauna, and jacuzzis alongside long menus of dry and wet massage and beauty treatments, including full body algae wraps, LED light therapy, oxygen & mineral facial treatments and ultrasonic peeling.


To port, guests will find a huge sea-view gym complete with personal trainers who offer everything from HIIT training, bootcamps, aqua aerobics to yoga and shoreside guided running.

For the watersports fans, a world of fun awaits thanks to the dedicated centre and its team of instructors (who form part of the 55 crew on board), who are always ready to set you up with a kite, windsurf, dinghy, wake board, E-Foil, Seabob, jetski, or any other toy you may wish to try.

Dive enthusiasts will be delighted to hear that a full range of PADI courses are available through the onboard Dive Centre, which also offers specialist training such as Deep Water and Nitrox. Flying Fox has an IHC Hytech Deck decompression chamber built to the highest standards of professional diving, as well as closed circuit rebreathers for the ultimate underwater experience.

Those wishing to try diving for the first time can complete their first dives in the main swimming pool on the aft deck.


Swimming pools are a defining feature in the resort-like world of Flying Fox. The unique 12 metre pool on the main deck stretches almost full beam and is a popular gathering spot for guests. Its smart engineering means there are jet currents to swim hard against, and others to be massaged by. Its floor can be raised to create safe depths for children, or rise flush with the deck to increase entertainment space.

Extra entertainment space is a rare request however - the 5 decks of Flying Fox are cleverly designed to ensure all occasions – from intimate to huge – are catered for; and even the two helicopter decks can be transformed into party or dining space.

With the upper deck and bridge deck dedicated to alfresco dining and lounging, guests can cozy up around the firepits or in front of the outdoor cinema, while others watch the chef prepare dinner in the incredible exterior galley. The galley takes centre stage on the bridge deck and offers a range beyond most yachts thanks to its option to cook with open fire and coal. From a traditional Indian Tandoor, to a full size rotisserie capable of cooking a whole lamb, the options are a visual sensation that often have guests choosing to sit ringside to watch the chefs, rather than at the huge 22 seat outdoor dining table.


Flying Fox seems to have one purpose at her heart; the spiritual and physical welfare of her guests. Her interior attests to this with contemporary, clean lines and natural finishes that support the fundamental, beneficial goals of well-being on board.

Deliberately understated, the interior design emits a soothing environment that provides practical social and work spaces. Each area benefits from the greenery of living trees and plants, all bathed in natural daylight and watered by a hidden irrigation system that provides nutrients as well as water. Surrounded by trees in the vast open atrium, it is easy to forget you are floating, somewhere at sea.


Similarly relaxing are the eleven suites. The ten guest suites all offer an ensuite and lounge and are all similar in generous size and design, with the smallest boasting an impressive 37 square metres. Each guest cabin has a side deck balcony which can become a common balcony between two neighboring suites if family want to feel closer to each other.

The master suite can be found two levels up, where it commands the entirety of the upper deck with a variety of spaces including offices, a beauty room and a huge lounge which leads out to an intimate alfresco dining area and fire pit.

The layout of such a large charter yacht could have seemed overwhelming to many, but the easy flow crafted meticulously by Lürssen and the central spiral staircase that connects the decks together with a flanking elevator, make navigation through this realm easy and almost homelike. 

Flying Fox is available for charter exclusively through Bluewater at a charter fee of €4,000,000 per week. 

FLYING FOX is not available to USA citizens, residents and cannot be booked via USA brokers.
