Flying Fox: The Largest Charter Yacht in the World

Flying Fox effortlessly vaulted to the title of largest private charter yacht in the world.

By Ellie Brade

flying fox superyacht

A yacht the size of the 446-ft M/Y Flying Fox rarely comes onto the charter market. Following her spring 2019 delivery, this one-of-a-kind vessel effortlessly vaulted to the title of largest private charter yacht  in the world.

It is hard to know where to begin when trying to do justice to Flying Fox . Built in Germany by Lürssen , under the supervision of Imperial acting as builder supervisor and owner’s representative, she features a dove gray hull and distinctive curved exterior lines by Espen Øino, with an interior by Mark Berryman. Her staggering length of 446 ft, a beam of 74 ft and her huge volume mean it is no surprise that one of the yacht’s biggest assets is the sheer amount of space on board, both inside and out.

“ Flying Fox ’s layout has been wisely thought out by her designers to ensure that each area offers guests something unique, whether that is a two-story salon to entertain or a cinema room to be entertained,” says Julia Stewart, director of Imperial, the exclusive charter agent for Flying Fox . “The attention to every single detail has been critically observed to provide guests an unforgettable luxurious experience on board.”

A true passion project developed in close collaboration with her owner, Flying Fox ’s appealing design makes her eminently suited to the yacht charter market. Developed to be a home away from home, the yacht is packed with a near-endless list of features that make it hard to consider the idea of ever leaving.

“ Flying Fox caters to all types of charter guests thanks to her beautiful looks and limitless amenities,” says Stewart. “If you want to set out on an adventure, there are all the toys and tenders you will need and highly trained instructors to take care of you; if fine food is more what interests you, then the culinary offering is unrivaled; for wellness lovers, the spa is unparalleled.”

Flying Fox ’s contemporary and functional interior draws on Japanese influences to create a calm and serene environment that makes use of a small palette of colors and materials including bamboo, oak, fine stones and leather. Exquisite mosaic and tile work also feature throughout the decor. Fresh greenery and towering ficus trees and planters are special touches that enhance the entire vessel and effortlessly bring the outside in.

PYC compliant, and able to welcome up to 36 guests in the care of 54 expert crew, Flying Fox has accommodations for 25 guests in 11 cabins. These include a show-stopping master suite complete with 180-degree views, his and hers dressing rooms, a private beauty room and a sitting room complete with its own fireplace — one of five fireplaces on board. The 10 additional guest cabins each have their own sea terraces for a personal view across the ocean. Each cabin is en suite with a 75-in TV screen and media center, and has its own design flair.

A focal interior point for guests is the sweeping atrium-style, two-level salon, which takes full advantage of the available height and volume to deliver a large seating area that overlooks the main salon, with a real-wood fireplace, below. This light-filled haven invites guests to throw off the weight of the world and relax. Other popular interior spots include the full cinema with D-box seating for 14 guests, an Atmos sound system, media system with more than 3,000 movies, a virtual-reality system and an abundance of games. A private dining room, with another real fireplace and enough seating for all on board, boasts its own aquarium as part of the styling, and is the ideal setting for enjoying formal meals created by the yacht’s talented culinary team.

An emphasis on social living, wellness and relaxation is seen throughout and nowhere less so than the spa. “Covering 4,305 sq ft over two floors, the spa is a state-of-the-art achievement that has been called a ‘little Palace Hotel Merano,’” says Stewart. “From the impressive Jacuzzi set in the middle, through to the hammam, sauna, cryo sauna, dry and wet massage areas, or the fully equipped 970-sq-ft gym, the assets offered are above expectations and run by trained professionals, with proven credentials, or former Olympic athletes.” The cryotherapy chamber is of particular note, as it’s the first to ever be installed on a private yacht, and is able to go down to temperatures of -166 Fahrenheit; it will tick the boxes for those looking for a true endorphin rush. A private medic is also part of the crew on board.

This dedication to wellness is seen across every deck, with numerous spaces to gather, relax and enjoy the water. The nearly 74-ft-wide swimming platform serves as a base for sunbathing and utilizing the yacht’s vast collection of water gear that includes a large selection of tenders, jet skis and Seabobs. A fully equipped professional dive center is positioned on the port side of the lower deck, with two dedicated folding terraces. “The on-board dive center is the best ever built on a superyacht,” says Stewart. “Run by PADI-certified specialists who have the ability to train guests, it includes an impressive selection of gear of all sizes, its own breathing system that allows it to be completely autonomous and a three-seat decompression chamber.”

If the ocean doesn’t appeal, then head to the main deck, home to a truly impressive 40-ft pool. Placed transversely — a unique approach when compared to most superyacht layouts — the pool has an adjustable floor height that allows users to tailor their swim, with swim and massage jets at alternate ends. The pool is also a popular gathering spot for sunbathing or simply enjoying drinks and the undisturbed views. Other highlights across the four exterior decks include sheltered lounge areas, sun-drenched teak decks, two Jacuzzis — one on the owner’s deck and one on the sun deck forward — and the privately positioned roof deck that delivers escapism and serenity in equal measure.

Food lovers will appreciate the multitude of dining options found throughout the yacht. “On the cuisine side, Flying Fox is definitely out of this world: not only carrying some of the best chefs, with some having worked with Michelin-starred chefs, but also having impressive galley capacities and incredible areas to dine,” says Stewart. Favorite spots include the bridge deck, with a dining setup, bar and an open kitchen with cooking options, including a full-size rotisserie, tandoori, pizza oven and teppanyaki and churrasco grills, which ensure all tastes and flavors are covered.

While capable of traveling to far-flung destinations, Flying Fox is currently based in the Mediterranean. Access in even the most remote anchorages is easy thanks to the two helipads on board, with the upper deck helipad ranked as ‘18-meter D-Value’ and big enough to accommodate Flying Fox ’s Airbus H175 12-seat helicopter, the largest private helicopter in the world. The upper deck helipad has a double use and can transform into a dance floor like no other for partying under the stars.

The visionary  Flying Fox  yacht dwarfs her competitors — literally and figuratively — and delivers luxury escapism in the highest measure.

Interestingly, the project initially began as a simple refit but quickly morphed into a major conversion. German firm iYacht spearheaded the exterior design and naval architecture, starting off by reverse engineering the existing superyacht. In June 2020, iYacht’s team flew to the south of France to measure and create an accurate 3-D model of Greyzone that they could design from. Four weeks later, the first concepts were complete. The team proposed a new galley, an updated foredeck, a Jacuzzi on the flybridge, and a larger stern platform. They also redesigned the beach club to ensure the 2012 superyacht appealed to modern seafarers.

Thanuja Superyacht

As the refit commenced, the decision was made to turn the existing 124-footer into a high-tech superyacht in line with the latest North European standards. The technical spaces were reconstructed, with Thanuja gaining a new engine room, bow, stern thrusters, pipes, cabling, engines, and generators. The aluminum superstructure was rewelded, too.

Onboard, the superyacht gained fresh teak decking and new furniture throughout. Katharina Raczek and her team brought the interiors to life, balancing new and old elements and combining existing structures with new construction. After the upgrade, Thanuja can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests in five staterooms and seven crew across six cabins.

Megaship msc world america brings yacht club to north america.

  • Share to Facebook
  • Share to Twitter
  • Share to Linkedin

MSC Cruises has announced that they will bring their beloved MSC Yacht Club experience to cruisers in North America in 2025. Their new megaship, MSC World America, will have seven distinct districts so guests can easily customize their vacation and prioritize what they most want to experience on board the ship. MSC Yacht Club will be one of those districts.

MSC World America is a mega-ship with seven districts.

The World Of A Reimagined MSC Yacht Club

Imagine a luxury cruise operating within a normal cruise. That’s sort of what it’s like to stay in the Yacht Club section of MSC cruise ships. This “ship-within-a-ship” concept offers a secluded retreat area with exclusive, quiet spaces, its own restaurant, luxury suites, and more.

On the MSC World America, the Yacht Club will have special accommodations for those who can indulge in total luxury. They offer double-balcony duplex suites that are great for large groups of friends or families who travel together. These suites span two decks. The lower deck has a dining and living area with a guest bathroom. The upper level has a primary bedroom with its own private bathroom. Two private sundecks with a private hot tub, outdoor seating area, and upper deck are also included.

For solo guests, couples, or smaller groups, multiple-room owner suites allow guests to stay in an elegantly decorated suite with separate living and dining areas, a bedroom, walk-in closet, posh bathroom with a full-sized bathtub, and floor-to-ceiling windows. These suites also have their own private terrace with a hot tub and outdoor dining area.

Dining is elevated in this part of the ship, too. The Top Sail Lounge offers Yacht Club guests panoramic views to enjoy while being served drinks, desserts, and canapés. The MSC Yacht Club Restaurant has a calming ambiance, large menu, and fine wines.

MSC Yacht Club on this new ship will also have a large, luxurious sundeck. Guests can take a dip in the hot tub or pool, or they can even relax in a private cabana. That empowers guests to relax in peace and quiet while overlooking the sea or the destinations the cruise will visit. There’s also a lower deck in the Yacht Club with a bar and grill along with a seating area for guests to dine and enjoy cocktails.

Also, Yacht Club guests are given exclusive access to the Ocean House at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, the cruise company’s private island in the district of Bimin in The Bahamas. There they can enjoy a private beach and private dining.

The MSC World America Experience

Beyond the MSC Yacht Club, the MSC World America offers a choose-your-own-adventure style of vacationing. They encourage families to identify what they most want to experience on this megaship, then they help them build those ideal experiences.

The ship itself will span 22 decks, and it will have a total of 2,614 staterooms. It has a World Promenade where all cruisers are welcome to enjoy dining, entertainment, vivid light shows, and breathtaking views. Entertainment, dining, and shopping can be enjoyed at the indoor World Galleria.

Dining And Drinking On MSC World America

This megaship has 13 restaurants that are open to all cruisers. Vegan options should be available at all restaurants. However, be sure to tell the restaurant staff in advance about any dietary needs or requests. Some vegan options that have been available on another MSC cruise ships include such diverse dishes as vegan burgers, couscous, tofu ragout, rice noodle dishes, black bean vegetable burritos, pasta primavera, roasted cauliflower steak, tofu vegetable teriyaki, and more.

There are also 20 bars and lounges aboard the MSC World America. There will be a sports bar, a comedy club, a British pub, a gin specialty pub, a mixology bar, and a coffee emporium, among others.

Playing Aboard MSC World America

Adventurous kids and adults alike can go down the ships 11-deck-high dry slide and enjoy the large water park with water slides that incorporate a VR experience. There will also be six pools and 14 hot tubs.

Parents can enjoy some downtime while children play in the Kids Clubs that will have special facilities for age groups that range from infants to older teens.

The three on-board entertainment venues will present plays, music shows, and other family entertainment.

MSC World America’s Energy Efficiency

Despite is large size, MSC World America was designed to be among the most energy-efficient cruise ships in operation. Their latest-generation engines will reduce greenhouse gases emissions (GHG) by up to 20 percent. MSC Cruises is committed to net zero GHG emissions by 2050, so this ship was designed as part of their overall plan for more sustainable cruising experiences.

MSC World America will have its first sailing in April 2025. Eastern Caribbean and Western Caribbean itineraries are planned for the ship in its first year.

The yacht-spotter's guide to the F1 Monaco Grand Prix

Every year, Monaco’s Grand Prix pulls in some of the fleet’s finest superyachts for a weekend of adrenaline-fuelled F1 action and A-lister events in the heart of the principality. Yachts moored stern to the circuit have a premium vantage point over the cars tearing around the track, while superyachts at anchor can enjoy all the Formula One buzz with the added benefit of privacy and seclusion. 

BOAT takes a closer look at the superyachts spotted near the event...


Length : 111.9m Builder : Freire

Renaissance is the largest private yacht built in Spain and one of the world's most expensive charter yachts . Which is quite the feat for Freire, a commercial shipyard that has built only one private yacht in the past. With 7,200GT to play with, her list of amenities include a sushi bar, a dedicated hair and beauty salon, a ballet bar with a mirror for stretching and two cinemas – one indoor, one outdoor. The owner's deck is described as "palatial" and comes with its own a media room, a lounge with bar and dining and a private terrace with a Jacuzzi for six.

Length : 52.1m Builder : Sanlorenzo

Spotted pulling into port with a Bugatti on the aft, Seven Sins is the perfect yacht for soaking up the Formula One action. She is part of Sanlorenzo's hugely successful 52Steel series, with features including a glass-bottomed pool on the aft that floods the beach club below with light. Her palatial interior design offers plenty of space for kicking back and watching the races in a more relaxed setting and her sharp Officina Italiana Design exterior is sure to attract attention in Monaco harbour. 

Length : 90m Builder : Benetti

Lionheart was launched in 2016 as the shipyard's largest build to date, though she was surpassed by the 107-metre Mar (ex Lana ) four years later. She was the third yacht to be ordered from Benetti by the same owner, Sir Philip Green. While her curvy exterior and private balconies will be visible to those visiting Port Hercule this weekend, interiors have always been shrouded in secrecy. It is known that  Stefano Natucci  collaborated with Benetti on the exterior design and Green & Mingarelli Design  is responsible for the interior design.


Length : 87.8m   Builder : Feadship

Created with family use in mind, Fountainhead features a recreation room and library that can be converted into cabins to supplement the six existing guest cabins and owner's suite. She was designed by De Voogt Naval Architects and Sinot Yacht Design , though "a signature blend of art, antiques and aesthetics" by Belgian artist Axel Vervoordt are also displayed throughout.  Leisure highlights include a fully-equipped gym with health club, a contra-flow swimming pool and a tender garage that houses wave runners, kayaks, surfboard and diving equipment, among others. The superyacht is named after the famous novel by Ayn Rand.

Coral Ocean

Length : 72.6m Builder : Lürssen

A World Superyacht Award winner, Coral Ocean earned the judges' commendation following a sensitive, multi-million refit that converted the heritage vessel into a successful charter platform. All deck spaces were upgraded, including a reimagined sundeck that now houses a glass-sided spa pool, sunbathing and observation deck and a central deckhouse with a television lounge, dining area and bar. Coral Ocean was one of the largest launches of 1994 and her secrecy for the first two decades of her life solidified her as an icon for the German shipyard. She is owned by Australian garbage waste disposal giant Ian Malouf. 

Length : 72m   Builder : Lürssen

Delivered in 2006, Titania  (ex Apoise ) was put up for auction by her owner in 2010 and was snapped up for €33.75 million – roughly half the estimated value – by Phones4U tycoon John Caudwell. He then went on to refit, lengthen and rename the superyacht, which he discusses in an exclusive interview with BOAT International . Designed by Espen Øino and Francois Zuretti , the Lürssen was the star yacht in season six of The Crown and is a popular charter yacht. No wonder, as she sports a beach club that can be converted into a nightclub, an onboard masseuse and beautician and an impressive array of watersports – including a waterpark and a 12.7-metre slide.

Length : 70m Builder : Royal Denship

Force Blue first hit the water in 2002 as the 63.3-metre Big Roi , a trawler-style expedition yacht that has since been refitted to varying degrees. The most recent work was done at Lusben in 2022 and involved a seven-metre stern extension to allow for a large, wrap-around swim platform. The main deck was extended in the process as well. Design highlights include a black-tiled spa (with heated massage table), a cinema, a barbecue and dining area that turns into a disco and a dining room that doubles as a conference space. An elevator serves all decks.

Length : 67.5m Builder : Icon Yachts

The flagship of the Dutch shipyard, Loon (ex Icon ) is now anchored in Port Hercule where she is likely to cause another social media sensation . She was delivered in 2010 to a design by RWD , with clean, contemporary interiors by Studio Linse . A raised main deck pool is one of her many highlights with two panels of glass that filter natural light into the beach club below. A bar, gym, massage room and sauna are also found at this level. Loon was sold to a new owner in April 2023, after which she joined the charter fleet with IYC .

Length : 66m   Builder : Oceanco

AHS has undergone numerous name changes (she was sold and renamed mostly recently in January ) but started life as Dilbar in 2005. A successful charter yacht, she can be easily distinguished in port by her classic canoe stern. An interior by the late Alberto Pinto provides accommodation across eight cabins, including a full-beam owner's suite with its own lounge and adjoining private office. Other highlights include an outdoor cinema, a beamy sundeck with 19,000-litre pool and a helipad that transforms into a sun lounge.

Length : 49.9m Builder : Zepter

The Croatian yard's first superyacht offering, JoyMe is usually berthed in Cap d’Ail but has been sighted in Monaco for the past two Grands Prix. She’s one of the most recognisable yachts at the event, with her custom red and white exterior and unusual eye motif – said to be the eyes of the commissioning owner’s daughter. Leisure highlights include a Pop Art-inspired interior by  Marijana Radovic , a sundeck with a 3.5-metre Jacuzzi and a lower deck arranged with a gym, Finnish sauna and Hammam spa with sea views. Accommodation is across five cabins, including the "VIP deck" owner's cabin which has a walk-in bathroom, lounge and private sunbathing platform on the bow.

Length : 45.2m Builder : Royal Hakvoort

The most recent delivery on the list, Milele is one of this year's World Superyacht Award winners . According to the judges, she stood out thanks to her "incredible build quality” and surprising spaces on board. Most notable of these is the innovative foredeck garage, which stores a submarine and crane, and has a full entertainment suite with a large television screen built into its hatch. She was designed inside and out by Omega Architects with an efficient hull design by Van Oossanen Naval Architects .
