Explore some of the best superyacht wine cellars

Part of the joy of the yachting experience is enjoying the chef's culinary creations. To complement the work of the galley one must have the right wine pairings at the ready. Enter the superyacht wine cellar, which simply cannot be overlooked when designing a yacht. Entertaining friends and family is a high priority aboard 49.9 metre Delta motor yacht ENDLESS SUMMER and as would be expected, considerable attention has been devoted to food and wine. While the galley is spacious and well equipped the extensive wine collection has been afforded special status behind a glass wall in a climate-controlled cellar, where floor to ceiling symmetry of bottles create a striking impression.

The ruggedly handsome 107 metre ANDROMEDA (ex-Ulysses) might be known as the one of the toughest toy boxes on the water but her explorer yacht exterior belies an interior packed with creature comforts. This includes the wow-factor of a wine cellar. It's not simply a space for storing wine away, but also where guests can be invited for intimate wine tastings.

Launched in 1986, the famed Feadship HIGHLANDER might be known for her exterior design by Jon Bannenberg but she also hides an ample wine cellar. She has been used extensively for entertaining in her lifetime, hosting everyone from Heads of State to Royalty and the Forbes family. This wine cellar surely has come in handy for such soirees.

The 60 metre Feadship motor yacht PARAFFIN has space on board for up to 400 bottles of the best vintages, with 200 stored in this beautiful display case near the formal dining area. The myriad of wine bottles serve as a perfect complement to the stately and serene dining saloon. Perched on one of the plush leather stools, against the dark wood bar is surely the ideal place to sample one of the many vintages that are found on display.

Launched in 2015, ASYA 47 meter Heesen features interiors by Bannenberg & Rowell. Her wine storage is displayed with sensible racking and glamorous lighting, the interior styling is simplicity in the ultimate form of sophistication. The boat has a restful, Far Eastern inspired interior motif and boasts plenty of interior and exterior socialising space, striking a nice balance between private corners and open entertaining spaces.
