The Best Superyacht Beach Clubs For Easy Access To The Water

July 19, 2021



Expansive Beach Clubs Onboard Yachts For Sale Or Charter.

The entertaining sundeck, comfortable bow seating, aft deck al fresco dining, and cozy main salon get all the attention on a yacht. But let’s not forget the humble beach club — a platform along the waterline between the port and starboard staircases.

A superyacht beach club is more than a place to swim and splash around, it’s an additional socializing and entertainment area. Often called the swim platform or transom garage, some yachts capitalize on this space to offer lounges, dining, a wet bar, gym, or spa. And boy, does it pay off. Beach clubs add a noticeable boost of luxury to the yacht. Whether you’re keen to transform your yacht’s garage or seeking a yacht with an established swim platform — we found 5 superyachts with the best beach clubs. Let’s get the party started.


1. ABBRACCI | 180′ Heesen 2011

At 180 feet long, a yacht such as ABBRACCI is going to make the most of every available onboard space. The transom door swings down to open over the water creating a massive swim platform. At anchor, this platform can be configured to the owner’s preference. 

When all of the water toys are removed from the garage, the area can be converted into an enormous covered beach club complete with a cedar-finished sauna and day head. It boasts enough space for umbrellas, chairs, or even a dining table.

Contact Denison yacht broker Thom Conboy to inquire about ABBRACCI.


2. CHESELLA | 124′ Amels 1983

We already know that CHESELLA has one of the best sundeck setups, but she also boasts an expansive brand new beach club. The transom door drops down to form a bathing platform on the lower deck.

Guests can access the water with ease or relax on the loungers at the water’s edge. CHESELLA also has a selection of water toys, which include a wave runner jet ski, diving equipment, fishing gear, and stand-up paddleboards. The beach club has showers for you to rinse off the salt when you’re done playing in the ocean.

Contact Denison yacht broker Mike Burke to inquire about CHESELLA.


3. SWEET EMOCEAN | 116′ Azimut 2009

SWEET EMOCEAN is a Denison yacht charter that offers all the fun amenities you want as a guest. The garage can be converted into a gym or a beach club, depending on the mood of the day. Hop on the stationary bike in the morning with a view of the water, then host a day party with music, food, drinks, and floats for the water. Now that sounds like an epic yacht charter.

Contact a Denison charter broker to book SWEET EMOCEAN for your next vacation.


4. ZARANIA | 105′ Numarine 2020

ZARANIA is a Denison yacht charter with all the best amenities. Across this Numarine yacht, you’ll find sun pads, a hot tub, a gym, sundeck, and a Portuguese bridge. But the beach club is where you’ll find us. The garage door opens down to create an expansive swim platform.

The air-conditioned beach club is equipped with a head, shower, sofa, and deck chairs. During a luxury yacht charter, the crew will set this up for you so that you can relax by the water and easily jump in when it’s time to cool off.

5. 60′ Van der Valk 2022

Van der Valk, the Dutch shipbuilder, knows how much owners love a good beach club. So they created the BeachClub range that offers a completely new way of using the space on a smaller yacht. 

The Van der Valk BeachClub 660 offers a 14 square meter smart swim platform that hosts the engine room underneath, opening up space for a big beach club. Sliding glass doors open into a lower salon and galley blanketed by natural light with windows across the hull and aft doors. Created in partnership with Cor D Rover design, this beautiful aft-cabin always stops people in their tracks.
