10 Best Charter Yacht Main Saloons

Charter broker Trina Howes at CharterWorld suggests the 254-foot motoryacht Samar: “The scale of the saloon and dining area on this yacht is jaw dropping. The extra-high ceilings and the opulent interior design make you feel like you are in a palace. It is magnificent.

Howes also recommends the 70-foot Sunreef powercatamarans Damrak and Sea Bass: “Their saloons are lovely with the open plan dining area and galley, plus a separate lounge area overlooking the main deck.”

The team at Edmiston and Company also has two recommendations this week. First is for the 124-foot Heesen motoryacht Calaf: “The saloon is extremely spacious and there is a beautiful piano in the middle of it.”

Also from Edmiston this week is a recommendation for the 112-foot Leopard motoryacht Anita: “She is a fun and fast yacht, and she has two huge speakers in the saloon—it’s great for parties.”

Camper and Nicholsons International recommends the main saloon aboard the 184-foot Perini Navi sailing yacht Panthalassa: “She has an indoor-outdoor living design and central staircase which acts as an atrium and piece of art, with light filtering through to the lower deck.”

The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals, now a part of International Yacht Collection, has two suggestions this week. First is for the 160-foot Christensen motoryacht Odessa: “A gorgeous, 250-gallon aquarium separates the salon and formal dining area, and is the focal point of both rooms.”

Also from Sacks this week is a recommendation for the 100-foot Hargrave motoryacht Cocktails: “She features a bar with a lighted onyx countertop, which is a perfect backdrop for entertaining and making cocktails!”

CharterWave editor Kim Kavin has several suggestions this week. First is for the 169-foot Alloy sailing yacht Mondango: “The colors and textures in this sailing yacht’s main saloon are really interesting. Beneath my bare feet, the carpeting was so plush it almost felt like I was getting a toe massage. The chocolate leather trim on the walls is a nice contrast to the room’s beige and red fabrics, and the coffee table is both elegant and functional. If the crew hadn’t told me, I’d never have known the table’s center piece is a secret escape hatch from the guest area below.”

Kim also likes the main saloon aboard the 105-foot Broward motoryacht Independence 2: “Most yacht owners divide the main deck into spaces for the saloon and the formal dining table. On Independence 2, the owner got rid of the formal dining table—which rarely was used—and instead added cocktail tables that can convert to a dining table if needed. The result is a saloon that feels twice as large as it should for a charter yacht in this size range. It’s a smart, satisfying layout.”

Last this week is Kim’s recommendation for the main saloon aboard the 120-foot Benetti motoryacht Kai: “What I like about this main saloon is that the owner tore out the original carpeting and installed ivory limestone. Not only is the look interesting and unique, but guests coming inside after a day of water sports won’t have to worry about wet feet.”
