By Katia Damborsky   5 July 2019

Delivered earlier this year, the 136m/446ft motor yacht ‘Flying Fox’ made plenty of waves when she joined the international charter fleet. Now, you can take a sneak peak inside the world’s largest charter yacht.

With elegant and sinuous exteriors from Espen Oeino and quality German craftsmanship by Lurssen, Flying Fox is a masterclass in cutting-edge design. 

Top that off with interior styling by British studio Mark Berryman, and you’ve got a charter yacht that offers the finest in luxury living.

At 136m (446ft), Flying Fox is the world’s largest yacht that you can rent. 

Even better? The yacht is PYC-compliant, meaning she can host up to 22 people on board. 

Here’s what you can expect when you charter this mammoth megayacht.

Expansive spa facilities

Adjoining the beach club, you can take full advantage of a 400 square-metre spa that spans two floors. 

The central spa plays host to an enormous jacuzzi pool, with direct access to the sea lounge and swim platform.

The upper spa area boasts a marble hammam and sauna, as well as a treatment room where you can indulge in a massage or pampering beauty treatments.

What’s more, the spa also has access to a state-of-the-art Cryosauna. 

Selection of outdoor areas, including 12m swimming pool

Aft deck swimming pool on superyacht Flying Fox

The yacht’s transverse pool on the aft deck is hard to miss, stretching out invitingly with a perfect situation that will afford excellent views over the surroundings.

In addition to this, you will be spoilt for choice for places to relax and unwind.

Forward of the pool there are a number of lounging areas and a bar, while the upper deck has a convivial selection of seating spots with a structured glass skylight in the centre.

The yacht also volunteers numerous side terraces, a locker of the latest toys and a dedicated dive centre in the beach club.

Twin helipads

Flying Fox has not one, but two helipads, with one on the foredeck and a second positioned on the upper deck aft.

Their impressive size and D-values means that they can accommodate some of the largest helicopters on the market, allowing you to arrive and depart in complete style.

Refined and elegant interiors

The interiors of Flying Fox have been styled to reflect a neutral and tasteful theme, with Oriental-inspired accents that contribute to the soothing ambience.

Throughout the yacht, satin-finish blonde wood works in perfect harmony with neutral tones offset by fresh infusions of leafy green foliage. 

A split-level atrium takes pride of place as the main salon, with a wooden fireplace and formal dining for up to 22 diners. 

As an added bonus, you can enjoy the complete entertainment experience on board, thanks to a cinema with luxurious D-box seats.

Enormous owner’s suite

Large owners suite on yacht Flying Fox

The principal charter guest will love the owner’s suite, with its private spa pool on deck and mammoth en-suite with a free-standing bath in the centre. 

The apartment comes equipped with a large sofa seating area, a built-in fireplace and a large TV screen.

Jeffrey epstein, ghislaine maxwell partied with australian billionaires on 100ft yacht.

Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein; Lindsay Fox

Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell once partied in Sydney Harbor on a 100-foot yacht with a billionaire Australian trucking tycoon and a powerful medial mogul, according to a newly resurfaced report — sparking controversy online for the country’s elite.

The late pedophile financier and his then-girlfriend were guests of honor on a 1995 Christmas cruise hosted by trucking magnate Lindsay Fox, according to a newspaper article at the time which was rediscovered by a Jeffrey Epstein podcast and first reported by VICE . Fox is among the country’s wealthiest men.

The then-power couple hopped aboard Fox’s massive yacht for the exclusive holiday bash — which was also attended by Australian media mogul James Packer and musician Deni Hines, The Sydney Morning Herald piece dated Dec. 24, 1995 details.

While describing the event, the paper dubbed Maxwell “the beautiful, feisty, 34-year-old daughter of the late disgraced media baron Robert Maxwell” and Epstein her “millionaire American beau” who’s prone to “zipping around Manhattan in a Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit.”

The boat party was “one of the most coveted Christmas invitations in Sydney,” the column said, which notes that other well-heeled guests were on the list.

At the time, Epstein and Maxwell had been spending time with the Fox family in Melbourne before traveling to Sydney for a “brief visit,” the article states.

Lindsay Fox, who founded logistics and supply company Linfox in 1956, was ranked the 10th richest person in Australia by Forbes last year. Packer, who went on to run the gambling empire Crown Resorts, was ranked 9th.

The holiday party took place not long after Epstein bought his secluded Palm Beach, Florida mansion, and acquired his opulent Manhattan townhouse, where he then allegedly began sexually abusing girls. Maxwell is accused of helping recruit and sexually abuse the young women.

But the newly-resurfaced society column has forced Fox to deny the article and distance himself from the notorious couple. A rep for the businessman told VICE that he never met Epstein or Maxwell.

“Despite the contents of the story…Lindsay has never met Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell — neither in Sydney, nor Melbourne.  Indeed, at the time of the ‘harbour cruise’ in Sydney as suggested by the article, Lindsay’s diary records confirm that he was in Hawaii celebrating Christmas with family,” the rep said.

However, the journalist who wrote the story, Rosalind Reines, said she stands by her reporting.

Neither James Packer’s nor Deni Hynes’ representatives responded to VICE’s requests for comment.

The hottest trophy asset among Australia's rich elite

Forget fast cars, super yachts or luxury houses. The hottest trophy asset for Australia's rich elite right now is a $100m jet. So who has bought one?

Picture: Gulfstream

Former Toll Holdings boss Paul Little has owned his Gulfstream G650 for more than five years but it still looks as good as the day he took delivery of the $85 million private jet.

Little was a trendsetter in buying the first business jet able to fly non-stop to Sydney and Melbourne from Los Angeles, joining the likes of Multiplex heir Tim Roberts, media magnates Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, and Westfield's retired co-founder, Sir Frank Lowy.

The List now includes Melbourne billionaire plumbing supplier Jonathan Munz (who never flies at night), Westfield heir David Lowy (who flies the plane himself) and Spotlight billionaire Zac Fried.

Media and mining magnates Kerry Stokes and Gina Rinehart have preferred the smaller but equally luxurious Gulfstream G600.

The world's leading private jet manufacturers are setting new standards for space and power in the air, releasing the Gulfstream G700 and the Bombardier Global Express 7500.

Property developer John Gandel is the only Australian owner of the latter $100 million aircraft.

Andrew Forrest, Kerry Stokes and Perth-based gaming founder Laurence Escalante each have one on order.

Trucking magnate Lindsay Fox and his family are taking delivery of a new Global Express 6500 — $20 million cheaper than the 7500 — in the second quarter of this year.

An explosion in private jet travel globally in the past year following the Covid pandemic has seen aircraft deliveries in most categories pushing out to the second quarter of 2023 and beyond.
