Are you dreaming of the sparkling waters of the best yacht charter locations, warm sunny days, and unforgettable holidays with friends and family? The good news is you can start planning now, look for some inspiration, and travel later. Here are the most extraordinary swimming pools you could enjoy while chartering a luxury superyacht:
One of the latest additions to the charter world, the 136m/446.2ft mega yacht FLYING FOX has everything you could ever dream of. She is currently the most expensive yacht for charter with a EUR€ 3,500,000 per week base rate. Among her unrivaled luxurious amenities is the 12m/39ft swimming pool that runs along the stern length. The yacht’s design is focused around unforgettable yacht charter experience with ultimate relaxation. Thus, the lower deck also has a spa pool, with a much smaller size of 3m by 3m, which is perfect for a plunge after a complete spa treatment with hammam, sauna, massage, and cryo-sauna. What is more, there is also a Jacuzzi with sunbeds placed on the top deck forward. Sounds too perfect to be true?

Lurssen superyacht Kismet is one of the highly successful yachts on the charter market with some incredible feedback from her charter guests. Her multi-level oval swimming pool is located on the sundeck. For those who love to have some privacy and need a space to take a breath and unwind, there is a Jacuzzi further forward on the same deck. The innovative approach in the design of this vessel makes KISMET an eco-friendly yacht, with a “closed-loop system” which provides heating of the pool and Jacuzzi via her exhaust.

Previously chartered by the rich and famous, 99.13m/325.3ft CHRISTINA O is a classic yacht from the 1940s. She has been refitted a few times, however, she still boasts classic styling with sophisticated decor and luxurious amenities. Incredibly spacious and lavish, she can accommodate up to 34 guests across 17 cabins. It would be strange if a yacht of such size didn’t have a huge swimming pool, wouldn’t it? Yes, there is a swimming pool, and it is quite incredible: it was thoroughly restored with its famous Minoan bull and vaulter mosaic from the original design. What is more, the bottom of the pool can be raised to create a dance floor, or an extra space for guests during special events held onboard.

Owned by an Omani billionaire and available for private yacht charters, the 82m/262ft mega yacht ALFA NERO has one of the most striking swimming pools. It features a glass waterfall that looks stylish and sophisticated. The giant letter “H” on the bottom reminds us of ALFA NERO’s famous feature – the fully convertible pool becomes a helipad on demand. Land on and take off in style, and don’t forget to unwind – this is what a private yacht charter aboard this yacht is about.
