While barbeques, beach bonfires and days at the park are lovely ways to spend Memorial Day*, I think that lounging by one of these superyacht swimming pools and spa pools would be preferable to a hedonist like myself.
Amazing Yacht Pools
I don’t care where we’re headed. Someone could bring me a margarita and some SPF and I’d be just fine on any of these. For hours. Days. I don’t even need food.
But sadly, I don’t hang with the private yacht-owning crowd. I don’t even hang with the yacht-chartering crowd, so I can only live vicariously through my blog posts. Despite how pathetic that sounds, check out these 11 yachts with swimming pools, spas and decks to die for.
Many of these luxury superyachts are available for charter here. But be aware the prices can run you up to $100,000+ a week.
The Palladium 96m Superyacht
The Palladium yacht from Michael Leach Design and built by Blohm & Voss has a spa and pool on the aft deck that reaches indoors.
The 16m swimming pool on the luxurious Eclipse superyacht by Blohm+Voss can be covered with hardwood to turn it into a dance floor.
The pool on the Burgess Golden Odyssey II superyacht peers into the aquarium in the ship’s dining room:
The Heesen Quinta Essentia 55 meter yacht has a pool with a waterfall feature:
The Rossi Navi Numptia (now named the High Power III) 70m yacht pool has one clear end, two spouts and lights up at night:
Lürssen’s Kismet 95m yacht is one of the most sumptuously outfitted yachts in the world. And the mosaic tiled plunge pool and spa live up to the rest of it.
Lady Lola 60m yacht:
The Lady Lola superyacht has a romantic tiered spillover spa pool that is lit from below.
Mosaic Ceramic Tiled Yacht Pool:
The swimming-pool on the Yacht ‘Nameless’ by the Mondomarine of Savona shipyards is a special custom ceramic mosaic lined pool with an acrylic end designed by the agency LUCA DINI of Florence.
Benetti Ocean Paradise
The 55m yacht pool has three spout fountains:
Lürssen ESTER III (Project GREEN, hull 13685):
The 2014 66m Luxury motor yacht ESTER III has been superbly penned by acclaimed Espen Oeino, with interior design by multi-award winning Reymond Langton Design and a nice large pool.
The enormous and incredibly luxurious 86m Quatrolle superyacht has a large infinity pool with wood decking and a view off the back.
*I am aware of the true and important meaning behind Memorial Day, this ‘fun’ post is not meant to mock or take away from the importance of the men and women who have served this country, for which I am forever grateful. – the editor
