The World’s Largest Charter Yacht has Two Helipads and an Onboard Submarine

When spending A$5.36 million on chartering a yacht for a week, the impetus is to generally have a good time. However, if you are chartering the largest charter yacht in the world that conservative ambition switches to “go big or go home.”

With an enormous 22.5 metre beam and a groovy curvaceous design, chartering the Flying Fox for a week with 24 of your nearest and dearest is guaranteed to be the experience of a lifetime.

There are 11 guest cabins all with private sea facing terraces and a crew of 55 to see to your every whim. The water toys onboard this massive vessel include three jet skis, four seabobs, four Poseidon rebreathers, a Zapata flyboard, a professional kite inventory (and instructors), stand up paddleboards, kayaks, water skis and towable inflatables.

Qualified hairdressers, medics, dive instructors, chefs and masseuses make up the crew of the world’s largest charter yacht.

Designed and built by prestigious German shipyard Lürssen in 2019, this ultimate waterborne playground was rumoured to be owned by Jeff Bezos at one point, although these reports were proven to be false.

It has hosted music power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z in 2021 when they decided it would be more fun to be sunning and swimming in the Mediterranean than attending the MET gala in New York that year.

Measuring in at 136 metres long and with six decks towering 32 meters above the waterline, there is no lack of deck space on the Flying Fox. Onboard, you can choose from the two level spa which can be changed from steaming hot to icy cold in about 10 minutes thanks to dual hot and cold tanks and the 12.5 metre swimming pool above the vast beach club.

The boat has its own submarine with specially designed launching architecture as well as space for five tenders in a cavernous garage which has been designed to meet specifications for refuelling the tenders with petrol while they are stored in the garage.

The aft of the world’s largest charter yacht hosts a beauty centre and dry massage room where body-shaping and electrical facials are administered. There is also a wet massage room where you can relax under a rain shower on a warm water bed.

The transversely-oriented 12.5 metre two deck swimming pool is one of the stand out features of the Flying Fox; its depth can be adjusted at the touch of a button and it has both swimming and massage jets.

Interiors of golden oak, caramel bamboo, brushed limestone, travertine marble and cream leather, as well as rattans and coconut shell embellishment, add to the luxuriant ambience. The enormous terraced cabins can be divided with sliding panels into separate quarters.

We’ve carried families with the children in one suite and the parents in another, with this one big balcony for them. It works really well.

The 100+ square metre owners suite is a showstopper, with a massive bathroom with freestanding bath tub, a beauty room and his-and-hers dressing rooms are sure to excite the most discerning of visitors. It also includes a private sitting room with ethanol fireplace and executive office.

There is a vast, two level mezzanine saloon with a real wood fireplace with lush planters throughout, programmed UV lights and a full irrigation system that is linked down to the engine control room so you can monitor the health of your indoor greenery.

Food options are prepared by the expert crew and the vessel is equipped to cater for many guests.

The helipad on the sundeck aft is designed for the largest helicopters including the Airbus H175 and there is a waiting room for departing guests.

The world’s largest charter yacht can be chartered at A$5.36 million per week from Imperial Yachts.
