Superyachts for charter with the coolest water toy collections

15 March 2022

Whether you're a fitness fanatic or water sports lover, no charter is complete without a deep dive into a superyacht's toy box. And with new high-tech toys being released each year – from Flyboards and Hoverboards that let you float above the water to ever-advancing personal submersibles to dive to the depths – there's plenty on offer when it comes to water sports on a superyacht charter. Plus if you're keen to pick up a new skill, you'll often find a member of the crew on board who's also a professional sports instructor or personal trainer. From classic collections filled with Jet Skis and waterskiing gear to toy boxes specialising in deep-sea diving or inflatable fun, we round up the top superyachts for charter now with the most amazing water toy collections.

The former explorer yacht of Paul Allen was designed to reach the earth’s furthest corners, and she’s got just the right kit for such adventures – including her own marina and a fleet of no less than seven tenders. Guests can enjoy sky-high chopper sightseeing tours launched from either of the two helipads, skim across the waves with her e-foiling toys or dive to the depths with the ROV, Triton submarines and fully-equipped dive centre. After exploring your surroundings, take in a movie in the private cinema, swim some laps in the pool or head to the wellness centre for a spa treatment.

Octopus’ formidable toybox is paired with an ice-class hull so that charter guests will be able to make the most of the remote destinations of Central America, the South Pacific and northern Europe during this summer’s charter season.

Octopus is managed by Camper & Nicholsons with charters starting from $2,200,000 per week.

With RYA-approved facilities and a First Officer who doubles as a water sports instructor, Emotion² is well-equipped to offer endless fun on the water while cruising through the eastern Med.

For more high-powered entertainment, there’s also a Jetsurf and Flyboard on board, while more leisurely sports activities are offered in the form of fishing or a spot of golf from the dedicated sundeck tee complete with biodegradable balls and a FunAir floating golf green. Emotion² also offers an inflatable dock platform to extend the bathing platform for additional space or to act as a launching area.

Charter guests on Arience who are keen to discover more of their cruising destination above and below the surface will find plenty to keep themselves entertained with her well-stocked toybox. An RYA-approved water sports centre, Arience’s toybox was overhauled in 2019, taking on additional Jet Skis, towables and inflatables for spending time on the water. These newer items joined her pre-existing fleet of SeaBobs, paddleboards and kayaks, alongside her more unusual toys such as a water trampoline. For underwater adventures, Arience carries snorkelling and scuba diving gear, while a beach BBQ kit will come in handy for on-shore beach parties.

When not splashing around in the water, guests can return back on board for a dip in the hot tub with its swim-up cocktail bar or take in a movie inside the private cinema. Fitness fanatics will also enjoy a blood-pumping workout in the fully-equipped gym with its drop-down balcony followed by a massage or beauty treatment in the spa.

Arience is managed by Cecil Wright with a weekly charter rate starting from €595,000.
