Equipment needs to be compact yet functional

An issue that many superyacht owners face, is in relation to an onboard gym and working out how to maximise the use of space effectively, says Zoe Alexander, client relations at Gym Marine Yachts & Interiors.

The company designs gyms and spas for superyachts working with clients to install bespoke wellness areas onboard luxury yachts.

“For the more luxurious yachts with plenty of space, fitting in gym equipment can be relatively straight forward,” explained Zoe. “However, for boats that have limited space, the need for equipment to be compact, yet functional is of high importance.”

One of the most popular pieces of equipment that Gym Marine is asked for is the VersaClimber that provides a full-body workout and can be adapted for novices and advanced athletes alike.

Specifics

“With its small floorspace, it doesn’t take up much room leaving space to be used more efficiently for other equipment elsewhere in the room,” added Zoe.

“There is a lot to consider when purchasing equipment for any wellness space but for yachts there are some specifics to be aware of.”

These include knowing ceiling heights and understanding access that will all have an impact on which equipment is recommended.

“It is also essential that all equipment is installed by a specialist to ensure it is safe to use and will be covered under warranty should anything need to be fixed of changed later on,” said Zoe.
