Dressing for your super yacht jaunt, whether to the balmy Bahamas or the casino courts of Monaco should all be about comfort, grace and style. You need the swimwear for those moments of plunging into pure blue, snorkeling the salty depths, and sipping cocktails on the deck of MY Starfire. You need the light linens for sultry afternoons when you want to step ashore. You need something comfortable for morning yoga on the swim deck and something formal for those silver service dinners and super yacht soirees. And you also need the right superyacht friendly shoes. Super yacht decks can be slippery, they can easily scuff and mark, and for those who don’t want to abide by the unwritten bare foot rule, boat shoes are a must. Boat shoes don’t have to be boring, they can be beautiful and this selection helps to bring sass and style back to the sun deck of your luxury super yacht.
