With these luxury waterfront properties home is, quite literally, where the anchor drops.
When you own a yacht, the world is your oyster. You find yourself never even wanting to disembark, preferring to simply sail from one mesmerising natural wonder to the next. And sure, you could embark on a grand yachting voyage, but at some point you’re going to want to park-up and enjoy some time on dry land. And what better way to do that, than to drop the anchor at a luxurious private estate?
After all, who wants to leave their prize-possession in a marina, when you could have your own private parking space right outside – with minimum transfer time between the shore and your next sailing escapade. Here, we take a look at some of the most luxurious waterfront estates around the world where you can park your yacht.
27 Ward Avenue, New Jersey
New Jersey’s upscale Rumson area is a place where you can find many luxurious estates, some of which are comfortably inland, while others, like the 27 Ward Ave estate, conveniently overlook the Navesink River and Oyster Bay. This estate, worth almost 10 million dollars, is one of the most luxurious homes you can find in the New York borough, and it hosts many features and amenities that most homeowners can only dream of. Of course, one of its unique perks is that it comes with a private superyacht berth.
If you’re yachting across the eastern coast of the US and find yourself wanting to rest, or even procure a property in the New York metropolitan area, then there’s probably no better choice than this lavish estate. This capacious property is perfect for families and offers owners a spa, pool, private fitness centre, cinema, sauna and steam room, and much more – all while soaking in the gorgeous views of the Shrewsbury River and the ocean.
The Golden Square Residence, Monaco
Monaco is one of the world’s top yachting destinations. Home of the famous Grand Prix and Monaco Yacht Show, the coastal Principality is home to many of life’s greatest pleasures. Of course, you can expect to find some of the most luxurious waterfront estates here, and while you’ll mostly come across apartments in the city centre, waterfront houses can be found at the edge of the city overlooking the popular Larvotto Beach and beyond.
While waterfront houses are definitely something to marvel at, it’s important to note that Monte Carlo’s greatest charms lie in the city centre, right where the action is taking place. To experience that unique culture, how about a contemporary apartment residence in the Golden Square, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and of course, a front-row seat to the annual Grand Prix. If you’re looking to buy, this residence will set you back almost eight million euros.

Porto Montenegro Residences, Montenegro
There are many breathtaking yachting destinations around the world, but rarely will you find one that is as memorable and enthralling than the Adriatic Sea. Here you will find the beautiful country of Montenegro, home to charming yet luxurious seaside towns, an inspiring culture and incredible natural scenery.
Of all the new residential real estate available for purchase in Montenegro, the lavish Elena and Regent Residences definitely rank at the top of the local luxury scene, boasting a beautiful contemporary design and overlooking the sea whilst sheltered by the neighbouring mountains. Not only is Porto Montenegro the most luxurious residential area in the Adriatic, but it’s also the perfect spot to launch your yachting escapades towards Greece, Croatia, and the rest of the Mediterranean.
La Dolce Vita, New South Wales, Australia
The ever-sunny continent of Australia has numerous seaside cities, and more sights to see than any yachting aficionado can visit in a lifetime. When you’re sailing up and down the eastern coast, park your yacht at the luxurious La Dolce Vita estate in New South Wales.
This is a prime waterfront location at Pittwater, overlooking the sea and the vast Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. However, the breathtaking vistas are not the only thing that crown this amazing estate, as it also boasts three bathrooms and bedrooms, a guest suite, a large lounge area and a formal dining room, as well as numerous entertainment rooms and leisure areas. All of this, and your very own yacht parking spot.
South Quay Plaza, London
Not all luxe waterfront estates are located in small seaside towns or remote boroughs. The South Quay Plaza in central London is located in the heart of the city and offers some amazing skyline views. This is an up-scale neighbourhood, and one that welcomes yachting aficionados and their prized superyachts.

It’s also one of the most popular real estates and perfectly complements the millennial lifestyle, with the younger generation craving the hustle and bustle of the big city while enjoying all the exclusivity that this type of property brings. The plaza has everything you would expect from a luxurious estate in the heart of London, but its 56th floor residents’ lounge with terrace is definitely its crowning jewel.
