Emerald Cruises announces second superyacht

Emerald Sakara will sail The Seychelles from 2023

Emerald Cruises has announced a second luxury superyacht, Emerald Sakara, as well the addition of a new sailing destination, the Seychelles.

Following its maiden voyage in the Indian Ocean, Emerald Sakara – a Sanskrit mantra meaning ‘thoughts become things’ – will join sister ship Emerald Azzurra, in sailing the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Red and Black Seas.

Emerald Sakara’s maiden voyage will be the eight-day Tropical Charms of the Seychelles, exploring Port Victoria (Mahé Island), Sainte-Anne Island, Cousin Island, Praslin Island, Grande-Soeur Island, Curieuse Island, La Digue Island and Aride Island.

Construction is underway on the new 110-metre-long superyacht in Ha Long City (Vietnam), with the steel already cut. Like its sister superyacht, Emerald Sakara will have balconies on 88 per cent of cabins.

“We’ve received enormous interest in yacht cruising since announcing the launch of Emerald Azzurra, and we’re thrilled to be able to announce the construction of our second luxury superyacht, Emerald Sakara. ‘Sakara’ is a Sanskrit word, meaning ‘thoughts become things’. We feel that this idea wonderfully represents Emerald Cruises’ promise of helping our guests to take their dreams of experiencing unique cultures, exotic climates and stunning terrains, and turning them into tangible reality,” said David Winterton, global director of brand and marketing, Emerald Cruises.

“Just like we did eight years ago on the rivers, we are bringing our own style of innovative and contemporary cruising to the world’s celebrated oceans, and we cannot wait to welcome guests on board our two superyachts to explore some of the world’s most incredible regions with them.”

Emerald Sakara is the 11th vessel in the Emerald Cruises fleet – joining nine river cruising Star-Ships and the brand’s ocean-going superyacht, Emerald Azzurra, which is due to commence sailing on 28 January, 2022 with its eight-day Best of the Red Sea itinerary.
