Beach Clubs

Beach clubs are becoming an essential feature on superyachts as the client needs have evolved to modern living trends. Health and wellbeing are at the forefront and a huge industry with large 5-star hotels and resorts offering the spa experience with health retreats and extensive range of water activities that can cater for any need. Health and well-being have been available on yachts for some time, with masseurs, gyms, yoga classes and water toys. Over the past 3 years has seen an increase in beach clubs and outdoor stern spaces being a focal point within the design process of yachts that are under 50 metre. In 2020 the Covid pandemic had a huge impact on the luxury travel industry and lockdown meant that crowded resorts and beaches may now direct super yacht clients to want to escape to their own island on the sea.

SanLorenzo SX112

SanLorenzo launched SX112 a 34m yacht in 2020 the largest to date and can cater for 10 guests and 5 crew. The SX range of crossover yachts conceived by Luca Santella, mixing explorer style with classic flybridge motor yacht design. The SX112 has exteriors by Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon International Project, and interior by Piero Lissoni. The Crossover range refers to the function and uses of spaces that intertwine; this is true to the SX112 due to the multifunctional open spaces that can be re-positioned to the client’s specifications during the design stage.

Piero Lissoni an architect and creative director for Sanlorenzo has created a luxury home on the water by removing the traditional yacht features and considered how people utilise spaces.
