Luxury hotel brand launches cruise line

Four Seasons Yachts will launch in 2025 and is a joint venture with Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings and shipbuilders Fincantieri

Luxury hotel chain Four Seasons is to launch a cruise line called Four Seasons Yachts.

It is a joint venture between the chain, Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd and shipbuilding group Fincantieri, who will deliver the first new vessel by the end of 2025.

Veteran luxury travel industry expert Larry Pimentel – former chief of Azamara, Cunard, Seabourn and SeaDream Yacht Club – is overseeing the project.

The order, which was announced in July, includes the option for two additional vessels and amounts to approximately €1.2 billion. The first, as yet unnamed, vessel will be 207m and 27m wide with 14 decks; the generously appointed suites will average 54 square metres.

Pimentel said: “We are creating a new category of luxury lifestyle travel that appeals to discerning guests. We are bringing together the very best across industries to create the pinnacle yachting offering through world-class design, curated experiences, and truly exceptional service.

“When we launch in 2025, there will be nothing else like it on the open seas. Our shipbuilding partnership with Fincantieri rounds out a triumvirate of industry leaders in this unprecedented luxury lifestyle project.”

Christian Clerc, president, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, added: “Four Seasons Yachts represents the next chapter of our long history of industry leading innovation, and a milestone moment for our company as we continue to capitalise on new opportunities to extend the world of Four Seasons.”

“True vision rests in the ability to imagine the possibilities while always remaining loyal to one’s values. Our vision for this new venture does exactly that.

“We are creating something extraordinary that combines their expertise with what Four Seasons does best – delivering unmatched quality and excellence, surrounded by beautiful acts of service and love for our guests.”
