Spectacular superyachts with owners’ decks.

Published 08 June 2023

Not content with simply living the yachting life, some owners go one step further and dedicate an entire level to their personal use. A yacht owner’s deck is a welcome addition if you are looking for a little privacy while at sea. It can be the perfect solution for multi-generational families, where the young ones might want to spend all day in the water, and the grown ups enjoy some peace and quiet.

A private owner’s deck is about privacy – a sanctuary to yourself when you want to rise late, enjoy a morning coffee in peace and indulge in time together. When inviting friends and family on board, a dedicated personal area will help to give everyone their own space.
