Even on board a superyacht in the scorching Mediterranean, there’s nothing quite like being able to sit down in luxurious comfy surroundings to enjoy a good movie. As such, it’s no surprise that today’s superyachts are more often than not kitted out with lavish cinema rooms and deck spaces for this exact purpose.
Though cinemas are becoming more common on superyachts, there are still a select few that stand out for their sheer awe or creative use of features. Below, we take a look at some of our favourites.
1. Maltese Falcon, for her sail cinema screen
The iconic Perini Navi sailing yacht, Maltese Falcon, boasts one of most impressive al-fresco cinema setups on a superyacht. A powerful projector uses not a purpose-built screen to project its image on to, but instead, Maltese Falcon’s own sails. What better canvas for a projector than one that is multi-purpose, permanent, and more than huge enough for an insanely immersive viewing experience on deck.
2. Cyan, for her outdoor cinema
With an impressive drop-down screen, a state-of-the-art entertainment system, and an extensive on-board movie library, films are experienced at their best at Cyan’s impressive outdoor cinema.
3. Jems, for her spa-pool cinema
The 44-metre Heesen superyacht, Jems, is packed throughout with some incredible audio-visual equipment, but the star of the show is its outdoor cinema. Found on the sundeck, the removable screen allows guests to enjoy a film from the relaxation of the hot tub on deck.
4. Solemar, for her sun-deck cinema
Sit back on one of many luxurious chaise longues on the expansive sun deck on board the 62m Amels-built Solemar and get a magnificent view of the three-metre custom outdoor cinema screen with HD projector. A true movie under the stars!
5. Polar Star, for her outdoor cinema
Lürssen’s 63m Polar Star provides a fantastic on-deck movie-watching experience, with ample seating, atmospheric lighting and a large, modern cinema screen. It fits the ‘entertainment’ theme of Polar Star, which also features a huge range of exciting amenities, including Yamaha Waverunners, a fully featured gym, Seabobs, and snorkelling and diving equipment.
6. Axioma, for her indoor cinema
Charter favourite Axioma, built by Dunya Yachts, is one of the most expensive yachts to charter and has an impressive, cosy indoor cinema on the lower deck. The room recreates the atmosphere of a real cinema in high-end style, with eight luxurious seats and crew gladly bringing you more popcorn that you’ll ever need or want — just like the real deal.
Axioma’s cinema is just one of the reasons why celebs love to charter her. She also has a mesmerising atrium and an iconic swimming pool, to sweeten the offering.
