Summer is in full swing, so now is the time to relax in comfort. To help those who want to follow Cristiano Ronaldo's example and design a superyacht charter, we have compiled a list of eight boats ideal for family holidays.
Megayacht Icon: «no» sea sickness
There is a full gym, sauna and steam room, as well as diving equipment in the sub-deck areas. While parents relax, children can take advantage of the activities. There is plenty to do for passengers of all ages on board the Icon. You can dive from the bathing platform or have a book at the beach club. The spa pool on the Sundeck is designed for safe bathing of the youngest passengers, and thrill seekers can take advantage of the many water toys: two Yamaha VX cruisers, two canoes, two paddle boards and water skis. Children will love the inflatable slides and in the evening all guests can dine outdoors.
Thanks to a modern stabilization system that works both on the move and at anchorage, the chance of someone getting tired is reduced to nothing.

Mega Yacht Nero: a quiet mother, a happy family.
The 90-metre Nero left the Corsair Yachts shipyard in 2007 and was converted in 2016. The ten cabins can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests and a crew of 20. Usually the exterior of a yacht rarely stands out from the crowd, but in the case of Nero this is not the case: its classic design is sure to charm children who will immediately rush to explore a boat that resembles an antique steamer.
One of the highlights of Nero is the luxurious lounge area, where the whole family can comfortably watch a film. The impressive main salon is the ideal place for an evening meal or a board game.
There is a SPA salon on board, where the tired mother of the family will be taken care of by a massage specialist, cosmetologist and fitness instructor.
And while she restores the resource, good children's behaviour is guaranteed by an open-air cinema.
There is a Jacuzzi on the Sundeck and a 5.7 metre pool on the bow deck. Cherry on the cake is a barbecue grill for soulful family dinners.

Megayacht At Last: winter fun in the middle of summer
Heesen At Last is no longer young - she was built in 1990 - but she has undergone two global upgrades and feels more than good. She has many open decks for al-fresco snacks and sunbathing, a Jacuzzi and a barbecue on the sundeck, but her range of water toys is the most inspiring.
