Why superyacht Utopia is heaven on water

Named for paradise, this palace of the seas lives up to its billing

It’s a bold move, calling a yacht Utopia. But, boasting 72 metres of luxury, six sumptuous cabins and a cool cruising speed of 14 knots, this Feadship-built vessel gets pretty close to perfection — both inside and out.

One of the most handsome superyachts on the water, Utopia is not only easy on the eyes, but also offers her guests a raft of wonderful features. Take the duplex sun deck, for example, where you can enjoy 360-degree views from a Jacuzzi sitting 50 feet above sea level.

After first launching in 2004, Utopia received a thorough refit in 2013. Her interior, which can accommodate 12 lucky guests, is designed by RWD — a boutique design firm who spin maritime magic from their secluded base in Beaulieu, and aren’t known for doing things by half.

Outside, her sun deck and upper level are two of the most attractive terraces afloat, and are connected by a sweeping feature staircase. Deck umbrellas have the ability to shade any section in style and, when you do decide to retreat back inside from an afternoon of sunbathing, the decadent master suite will welcome you with open arms and a whole host of amenities. 

"It’s a bold move, calling a yacht Utopia..."

This suite not only occupies the entire upper deck, but also extends through a private lounge onto an outdoor dining terrace. It’s also hiding a dedicated gym and forward breakfast terrace somewhere in its depths.

Both saloons have floor-to-ceiling windows, and the unrivalled five decks of entertainment space will allow your crew to excel by creating new themes and activities to be enjoyed every day on Utopia. And even if by some miracle you do manage to become bored on-board — though no such fate is likely to befall you — just check the list of toys at your disposal and you’ll soon understand why Utopia was so-named.

Included on-board are two wave runners, two jet skis, a fly board, two maui kayaks, two lazer sailboats, two windsurfers, three wake boards, a water trampoline, two towing doughnuts, a towing lazy couch, water-skis and a five person banana. Utopia takes fun seriously.
