The result should not come as a surprise. Mega yachts have been heavily glamourized by style magazines, movies and other forms of media as the symbol of wealth, a luxury that can be shown off to state one’s belonging to the upper echelons of society. Besides, mega yachts are a marvel of technology, design and elegance, usually putting on show state of the art interiors and amenities.
To make a quite extreme comparison, think that the Azzam, the largest mega yacht ever made and bought for a whopping 600 million USD, has “eclipsed” in terms of performance, luxury and dimensions Roman Abramovich’s Eclipse, only four years older and purchased at a price of 500 million USD.
Such shortfalls however, should not scare people off from experiencing one of the most luxurious lifestyle experiences. One way to always have the best and most flexible yachting experience is through charter - the hire of a private vessel for a limited amount of time.
Private chartering, as we will see, is an excellent option to have the same feeling of yacht ownership, without all the burdens associated with its upkeep and at variable costs (which usually account for maintenance costs and extras). In fact, hiring a private vessel for a week holiday may cost as little as a few thousand dollars to as much as a million, depending on the yacht in question, the season, and the trip scheduled.
Always on the most fashionable deck
More interestingly, customers are pushing the industry to charter always more lavish and customizable vessels, regardless of the cost. Therefore, the focus is not on getting the best deal for a given vessel, but to get the best mega yacht with the most advanced features.
Nonetheless, no trend is rising more significantly than fitness on high seas. Chartered yachts and mega yachts users are not willing to forgo their training routine while on holiday, forcing the yachting industry to adapt to their demands. Such tendency was noted when the first patrons started bringing on board their own PTs and equipment, and escalated when they explicitly requested dedicated areas for training.
The ideal design of mega yachts gym
In order to create the best gym, smart equipment are just as necessary as their smart location on the available space, to create unique spaces where one can wholly dedicate to the wellness of the mind and body.
Now, despite Waterfront closing soon and summer moving to the Southern hemisphere, Technogym will still offer its home solutions in all its stores worldwide to inspire designers and customers to create the best private gym, because wellness is not seasonal.
