Mega Yachts are larger in size than Superyachts and exceptionally stable, which makes them suitable for overnight and long distance cruising. Most are between 150 and 300 feet in length with four or more decks and will typically accommodate between 12 and 100 guests in up to 50 cabins. There is enough space to host up to 200 people when stationary, for events. Owing to their size they operate in all seasons and can cruise to far corners of the globe from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean. As well as offering an immense choice of amenities, Mega Yachts offer luxurious and spacious cabins, lounge areas and outside spaces. They are crewed by a highly qualified, experienced and professional Captain, engineers and chefs, with a well trained staff of between 20 and 40 members.
Only a few shipyards are able to fulfil the demand for a Mega Yacht, which can take years to build; the naval architects and designers create vessels with the most advanced levels of innovation and technology, pushing the boundaries of design and engineering, Mega yachts can be powered by various custom-built propulsion systems, ranging from diesel / electric to gas turbine engines.
As Mega Yachts vary greatly in size this results in a range of amenities, equipment and performance. Most have world class communication and entertainment systems, and many will have helipads which are convertible to a sports court or disco area. Sophisticated water toys may include mini submarines, jet packs and water slides, along with the standard seabobs and scuba equipment. Most will also have a cinema, beauty salon, spa, gym and jacuzzis. A Mega Yacht offers the finest and most opulent mode of travel possible.
