As the facilities become ever more sophisticated across the superyacht fleet, one feature that really sets a luxury charter yacht apart is an onboard cinema.
Whether a plush, softly-lit interior cinema tickles your fancy or you’d prefer to watch a movie under the stars from the Jacuzzi, here are ten of the best superyacht cinemas afloat.
The Top 10 Superyacht Cinemas
10) M/Y BIG FISH
This spectacular 45m world-cruising superyacht boasts a 22 foot high video wall; ideal for watching footage of the day’s adventures or acting as a glamorous backdrop for onboard parties. At three stories tall, this media wall is a visual masterpiece and a striking feature piece of the yacht’s modern and elegant interior.
9) M/Y DYNA R
Pile into the oversize Jacuzzi with your family and friends and watch a movie under the stars on 36.9m M/Y DYNA R. The large movie screen is set up in prime position forward of the Jacuzzi, with comfortable seating options on offer too for those who would prefer to stay dry while eating popcorn, or dress up for a sophisticated al fresco movie viewing.
8) M/Y JEMS
It’s time to put on your swimsuit in the summer night air, fill your champagne glass, and settle back in the warm, bubbling Jacuzzi to watch a movie on the sundeck of 44m M/Y JEMS. When it’s time to dry off, wrap yourself in a soft white robe brought to you by the crew and relax on the wide expanse of sunpad cushions laid out in front of the large screen.

58m eco-sailing yacht ETHEREAL features a cinema room on her lower deck. With soft, comfortable couches to sink into, soft lighting and a large screen, this is a decadent movie-viewing experience. If you feel like creating some entertainment yourself, you can go next door to the music room to play the instruments.
The stylish circular meeting room aboard 56m sailing yacht PANTHALASSA can be converted into a cinema room, with the heavy black curtains running around the curved glass walls adding an intimate feel. For those hosting meetings on board, the screen performs a useful function for presentations.

Close the heavy white curtains to enjoy a more intimate movie experience.
2) S/Y VERTIGO
Enjoy an al fresco cinematic experience onboard M/Y Vertigo, an award winning 62.7m sailing yacht with a cinema screen on its main deck. Sink into the large sunpads and enjoy a movie as the soft summer breezes waft across the deck.

The sundeck on M/Y OASIS is one of the most versatile in the yachting world, offering a bar, Jacuzzi, barbeque area and professionally equipped gym. The open-air cinema converts into a dance floor to cater for relaxed al-fresco viewing sessions or elegant evening soirees.
Whether you’re hosting a film night onboard during the Cannes Film Festival, enjoying a romantic cocktails-and-movie night on the sundeck, or having family time cuddled up on the couches in front of the cinema big screen inside, an onboard cinema is the perfect addition to your superyacht experience.
