The much-anticipated Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is slated to launch in 2022An exciting moment for the iconic hospitality brand as it makes its foray into the luxury yachting space. Share
Envisioned to perfectly blend the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton resorts with the casual freedom of a yachting vacation, Evrima, the first of three yachts from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will deliver highly tailored getaways for travelers seeking to wholly immerse themselves in the culture of each destination.
Introducing unique itineraries and immersive experiences, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will carve out an entirely exclusive space within the industry. Stopping at both intimate and signature ports of call, most voyages will range from seven to ten nights, with no two journeys alike so that guests can combine itineraries without repeating a destination.
Depending on the season, Evrima will visit the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Destinations along the way will range from Spain’s Balearic Islands and the yachting playgrounds of the French Riviera to the shores of Aruba and the tropical coastlines of Costa Rica. The intimate size of Evrima also allows unique access into some of the most sought-after ports of call, delivering yacht-style cruising in destinations such as Mykonos, Saint-Tropez, St. Barts and more.
“Every element of the luxury yachting experience was carefully considered in creating Evrima,” commented Douglas Prothero, Chief Executive Officer for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “This attention to detail and innovation, and our commitment to delivering highly personalized, immersive journeys will place The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection in a league of its own, promising unforgettable getaways for both longtime cruisers and those who are new to the space.” The specially designed yacht will measure 190-meters and can accommodate up to 298 passengers.
The onboard experience will reflect the sublime comfort and legendary service for which the iconic RitzCarlton brand is recognized, with one of the highest staff and space ratios at sea. The design of the yacht’s 149 suites is an integral aspect of what sets The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection apart. In addition to offering a high percentage of large suites, the yacht will also feature several innovative loft suites, a unique two-story accommodation that is ideal for in-suite entertaining. All suites will feature a private terrace, floor to ceiling windows and greater ceiling heights, resulting in some of the most airy and expansive guestrooms in the luxury yachting category.
Through a soundproof, blind wall, select suites also have the option to be combined into larger, open-concept spaces allowing for more flexibility when selecting accommodations. All suites feature the luxurious amenities that visitors would find at a RitzCarlton on land, including a king bed, double vanity bathroom, luxury linens and more. Perfectly combining form and function, the light-filled accommodations will connect guests to the seas and harbors they are sailing.
Travelers will enjoy a range of programming including a thoughtfully curated menu of ESPA spa treatments, watersports from the yacht’s marina and Evrima’s signature restaurant, S.E.A., designed by chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the award-winning restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg.
The yachts of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection are also available for private charter.
