Superyachts With Fabulous Beach Clubs
There is still a month left until the end of summer, it's time to enjoy the sea vacation. The beach club today is the most important component of recreation on the water. We have selected three yachts with well-planned beach clubs worthy of your attention.Resilience65mISAThe ISA Classic 65 meter motor yacht Resilience spreads through six decks, her exterior and interior design was developed by Team for Design Enrico Gobbi while Palumbo Superyachts technical team were the naval architects. The steel and aluminum can accommodate 14 guests across six cabins with a seventh convertible, including a full-beam owner suite located on the forward main deck. At the lower deck she has the 4x4 meter transom, door aligns flush with the swimming platform when lowered, which combined with the two opened side doors, transforms the entire area into a beach club with an expanse of more than 180 sq. m. It consists of a lounge area, bar, showers, gym, sauna, massage room and a welcome area for boarding/disembarking guests from tenders. The beach club has three different accesses to the rest of the yacht: an external staircase from the aft deck, an internal staircase to the right of the massage area, and a scenic corridor running through a transparent glass enclosure which, crossing the engine room, directly connects the beach club with the lower deck lobby and the guest cabins. On-board equipment includes two jet skis, a 27ft guest tender and a 19ft crew tender. Al Waab55mAlia YachtsAl Waab, the longest steel and aluminum yacht below 500GT in the world, features the design and naval architecture by Vripack and GCC- based SF Yachts. She has an ergonomic layout which creates an open-plan, owner-centric general arrangement designed for easy, restful, family living. Other features include a drop-down bulwark in the dining area, which replaces the traditional formal dining room with an al fresco breakfast area just two meters above the water on the starboard main deck. Much of the onboard seating is designed to face outboard for a true connection with the sea. The yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests across six staterooms. The lavish split-level master suite is located on the upper deck and has a private four meter pool on the foredeck. A sprawling beach club in the stern is another highlight. Moreover, by placing the tender bay in a sunken deck in the bow the tenders are easily accessible yet hidden from view. The grated ‘tween deck arrangement provides storage for two tenders, a pair of jet skis and other water toys, but because it is not an enclosed space it is not included in the yacht's overall volume.Koju37m Benetti The elegant and modern composite displacement boat Motopanfilo 37M Koju features the design of the Benetti motoryachts of the 60s. Her external lines were designed by Francesco Struglia, in collaboration with Benetti. The profile, characterized by neat and clean cuts, has been elongated and refined with austere shapes. The Lazzarini and Pickering studio designed the interiors, also inspired by the nautical tradition of the 60s, with modern technical and stylistic solutions. Loro Piana Interiors completely covered the interiors and parts of the exteriors, which are characterized by timeless elegance and furnished with classic summer and sea materials, first of all linen, in shades of white, blue and malachite. Koju can accommodate 10 guests on board, including an owner’s suite at the bow of the main deck and a further four guest cabins on the lower deck. She features a spacious Hamptons-style beach club with a platform for easy access and a great selection of water toys. Credits: Yacht Harbour archive

100m Sailing Yacht Concept Crystal Revealed by Coquine Design
Christian Leyk has a long collaboration with Ken Freivokh, the designer of the Maltese Falcon. During this time, Christian also had the pleasure to work on the concept of Black Pearl. It’s therefore only natural that we do occasionally draw up new concepts around this amazing rig.Christian newest concept Crystal features a very different styling approach which results in very varied and usable outdoor areas, but in essence you’d still find all the amenities that are hard to find on the big sailing vessel. The vessel is fitted with a three-mast DynaRig sailing system that appeared on Perini Navi’s Maltese Falcon and Oceanco’s Black Pearl and is very easy and quick to use. As a sailing yacht she has the same performance and sustainability credentials as her bigger sister, including that fact that she’ll be able to cross the Atlantic Ocean without using any fuel. For the interior, well known designer Alexandre Thiriat has been invited to the project. Crystal can accommodate 12 guests on board, including a full beam owner’s stateroom with folding balconies, a spacious beach club with gym, space for tenders and toys, a welcoming swimming pool, and generous lounge space. Some emphasis was put on the interaction between inside and outside spaces, letting natural light in when it’s needed and giving the shadow when necessary.Christian Leyk established the philosophy of coquine design. In the second semester of studying industrial design in Munich, when he decided to keep the logo / logotype he developed for a fictional boutique (specialized on lingerie) for his future design studio. Since then he has worked for a few renowned yacht design offices, such as Evan Marshall (London, United Kingdom), newcruise Yacht Projects & Design (Hamburg, Palma de Mallorca), Ken Freivokh Design (Hampshire, United Kingdom) and most recently Marc Newson (London, United Kingdom) and applied his creativity to practically everything from yachts to cars, graphic design, architecture, film, photography and cooking.Credits: Coquine Design
