The nearly 450-foot yacht FLYING FOX is now the world’s largest luxury yacht charter vessel. She is 11 feet longer than previous champion yacht, SERENE (439 feet). Serene is now a private yacht. Not surprisingly, both yachts are built by the same shipyard. Furthermore, both yachts are designed by the same architect. Lürssen-built yacht FLYING FOX in 2019. The same house built SERENE in 2011. The lead exterior designer for both yachts is Espen Oeino (also known as Espen Øino). Each yacht is unique beyond this point. For example, Reymond Langton Design created the interior spaces for SERENE. Mark Berryman is the designer for superyacht FLYING FOX.
Whereas SERENE had a formal design, yacht FLYING FOX has a casual, spa-like feel. This is in line with the growing trend for wellness yacht charter. Luxury is important. How luxury enhances relaxation and casual guest entertainment is now more important. Tuxedos and cocktail attire have given way to women’s linen dresses and men’s dressy-casual clothing.
The owner of Lürssen yacht FLYING FOX is passionate about wellness and watersports. Indeed, you see two decks of space dedicated to recreation when you board the yacht from the swim platform. The swim platform is massive and over 22 meters (74 feet) wide. Next, you can enter the yacht’s 400 square meter spa. The limestone floors are heated. In the center of the spa is a hot and cold plunge pool. The pool water can go from hot to cold in less than 10 minutes. This pool is popular with charter guests, especially after they use the hammam or sauna.
There’s a relaxation lounge with a fold-down balcony on the left starboard side of the spa. A supply room for kite surfing and scuba diving in on the right starboard side.
The commitment to an environment of wellness is continued on the aft main deck, above the spa deck. A beauty center is located here. There is also a dry massage room and a wet massage room. Two more components round out the “wellness decks.” The first is a full gym, with Technogym equipment and a balcony for yoga and meditation. The second is the most spectacular element of the wellness amenities – a 12-meter pool.
The guest staterooms are forward of the gym. There are ten guest cabins on the main deck. Guests can simply wake up and go straight to the gym, or for a swim. Each cabin opens to a side walking deck. There are hidden panels that can convert the deck into private balconies for each cabin. The cabin décor is contemporary, with Japanese influences. Materials include golden oak, limestone, rattan, and coconut shells.
The master suite is located one level up, on the upper deck. It has an oversized bathroom and a private deck. The deck that wraps around the front of the suite. Other features include a beauty room and his-and-hers dressing rooms. There is also a sitting room with a fireplace. Adjacent to the stateroom is a meeting room and an office.
A complete outdoor kitchen is located on the aft bridge deck. The kitchen area includes a pizza oven, a rotisserie, and a Teppanyaki and tandoori grill. Guests can sit and watch the chefs prepare meals. A large dining table is also present.
The yacht is based in the Mediterranean in the summertime. Charters are primarily offered in France, Italy, and Croatia. Winter destination plans are flexible.
There are fifty-five (55) crewmembers onboard yacht FLYING FOX. The crew includes four chefs. Many of the crew are crossed-trained in different disciplines. For example, the senior divemaster is also the lead physical fitness trainer in the gymnasium. Other examples include the interior cleaning staff. Some are crossed trained as beauticians. Having a large onboard staff ensures the guests will receive immediate attention, no matter their needs. Personalized service 24 hours per day is part of The Superyacht Experience.™
There are eleven guest staterooms onboard. Up to 25 guests can be onboard for charter. All cabins feature double beds.
The list of unique features onboard the yacht is amazing.
Some of the special features include an onboard hospital with a decompression chamber for divers. Also, she has the first-ever, cryosauna installed on a yacht. Cryosaunas utilize extreme cold temperatures to provide therapeutic relief for muscle injuries, overuse, and pain. You often see cryotherapy (cold therapy) advertised in land-based spas. This one is at sea!
A complete inventory of diving equipment is also on board. Experienced divers as well as novices can enjoy the experience of diving. Certified dive instructors are part of the yacht’s crew. Every imaginable type of diving-related equipment exists onboard. For example, there are compressors, nitrox gas mixing systems, full face masks, and underwater scooters.
Like all upscale spas, the yacht offers a complete beauty center. Treatments include dry and wet massage, body-shaping, and facials. Swiss Perfection and Elemis skin products are used in the beauty center. The wet massage is unique. A guest lays on a warmed waterbed, while a rain shower cascades from above during the massage.
Live plants and small trees grow throughout the yacht. Specialized lighting and an irrigation system keep the greenery healthy and alive. Wellness at its best.
There are 5 fireplaces on the yacht. Most yachts have one or no fireplaces at all.
