Flying Fox is built to the Passenger Yacht Code, a new set of rules for safety and construction that allows yachts to charter with more than 12 guests. Flying Fox has 11 staterooms for 22 guests, and they all have private terraces. The owner reportedly named the yacht after a genus of bats in Asia and Australia that are believed to be the largest in the world.
Espen Øino did the exterior design on Flying Fox, and Mark Berryman is the interior designer. Features on board include a nearly 40-foot swimming pool on the main deck, gas and wood fireplaces on several decks, an upper-deck master stateroom, multiple hot tubs, a 22-seat dining table, a two-floor spa with a sauna, beauty center, gymnasium and massage rooms, and a cinema room as well as an outdoor cinema screen.
For water-sports lovers, there’s a dive room for scuba enthusiasts, as well as water toys including Sea-Doos, Seabobs, Flyboards and hoverboards. The yacht’s nine tenders include several limousine-style tenders and a beach-landing craft.
“There is nothing like Flying Fox on the charter market,” Julia Stewart, director at Imperial, stated in a press release. “This superyacht is unprecedented.”
