No longer are a treadmill and a few weights in the corner of a utility room or study classed as an "onboard gym".
A custom-designed and built space devoted to well-being, once seen as an indulgence, is becoming an imperative. High-tech fitness centres and sophisticated spas with crew trained in aesthetic and remedial therapies are now de rigueur on the world's most coveted charter yachts.
The current generation of charter yachts boasts foldout decks and beach clubs on the extended transom that do double duty as fitness spaces, often adjacent to bubbly Jacuzzis tinged with aloe vera.
"Wellness spaces" as they are called, can be a dedicated room or reduced to compact, stowable equipment, according to Giulio Gasperini, marketing manager for the iconic Italian brand, Technogym.
"More and more, people are taking a holistic view of wellness," he says. "It's about longevity, ensuring your quality of life, taking care of yourself with an emphasis on a positive lifestyle and physical and mental health."
And of course, in this era of the "Me, Me, Me, Me Generation", customisation is crucial.
"Unity is Technogym's latest swipe-screen interface connected to the Mywellness cloud platform," says Gasperini. "Users can customise their training program, data and content, apps, websites and favourite TV channels."
On an exquisite charter yacht, with the time and attitude for investing in your well-being, is the ideal place to recharge your batteries.
