The First Four Seasons Yacht Will Sail in December 2025, the first Four Seasons branded luxury cruise. A second Four Seasons Yacht will be delivered in late 2026.
Initial itineraries will include destinations such as St. Barths, Nevis, and the Grenadines in the Caribbean; the French and Italian Rivieras; and the Greek Islands, among the 130 Caribbean and Mediterranean destinations ultimately planned for the Four Seasons Yachts.
Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings, helmed by Nadim Ashi (who as the owner of Fort Partners is behind the Four Seasons at The Surf Club in Miami Beach, as well as the new Four Seasons Rome) and Philip Levine (a real estate and cruise entrepreneur), together with Fincantieri, one of the world’s leading shipbuilding groups, have partnered with Four Seasons to launch the yacht by the end of 2025. There's also the option for two additional vessels. Reservations for sailings are expected to open in Q3 2023.
With its maiden journey slated for late 2025, the first Four Seasons vessel will be 679 feet (207 meters) long and 88.6 feet (27 meters) wide with 14 decks. Each suite will cost an average of $4.2 million to build, with no expense spared to achieve its bespoke craftsmanship. While not detailed in the press release, we expect suites to include Four Seasons mattresses and bedding, which have quickly become beloved by so many of our clients.
“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 capitalize on new opportunities to extend the world of Four Seasons,” says Christian Clerc, President, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “…We are creating something extraordinary that combines [the expertise of our partners] with what Four Seasons does best – delivering unmatched quality and excellence, surrounded by beautiful acts of service and love for our guests.”
A Preview of The Four Seasons Yacht Experience
The new yacht's 95 spacious accommodations will feature an extensive network of joining suite combinations creating adaptable, villa-like residences. Each suite will offer floor-to-ceiling windows providing unobstructed natural light and access to expansive terrace decks. The combination of generous indoor and outdoor private guest space will achieve a new level of guest comfort.
Suite accommodations will start at an average of 581 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space, designed seamlessly to be part of each room. 60 percent of the yacht’s suites provide over 818 sq. ft. (76 square meters) of indoor/outdoor space, and each suite enjoys its own terrace.
Ocean Suites One-Bedroom Suites offer floor-to-ceiling ocean views, expansive private terraces, walk-in closets, and spacious bathrooms.
Signature Suites are ideal for a family or couples traveling together. They range from two to three bedrooms across multiple deck levels, with panoramic ocean views and expansive private terraces.
The most expansive residence, the “Funnel Suite” will comprise four levels, totaling over 9600 sq. ft. (891 sq. m.) of combined indoor/outdoor living space, including a private wading pool and dedicated private spa area, creating a sea view home away from home. The terrace alone will offer nearly 5000 sq. ft. (457 sq. m.) of space, while the suite's floor-to-ceiling wraparound curved glass window modules, made up of the largest contiguous piece of glass at sea, afford privileged guests stunning 280-degree panoramic views.
An Unparalleled Guest Experience at Sea
The Four Seasons yacht's restaurants, lounges and bar concepts will celebrate the excellence and creativity that has been the hallmark of Four Seasons history of culinary innovation and attention to guest preferences. A perfect cappuccino in the lobby, a Mediterranean-inspired lunch, a dinner tasting at the sushi bar or a glass of champagne on the breathtaking terrace – guests will never be far from a perfect bite always paired with remarkable sea views, renowned intuitive service, and much more.
The Four Seasons Yacht will also offer guests a full-service spa, salon, and wellness programming that includes fitness, yoga, health and nutrition classes and experiences. The classic canoe-shaped aft will be home to an expansive pool deck, with a 66 foot (20-meter) salt-water pool. The pool is designed so that it can be quickly emptied, the floor raised and converted into a multi-function area for outdoor movie theatre performances, fashion shows, weddings, or other private events.
The elegant and industry-first transverse marina is also an ideal spot for guests to enjoy the inviting water, sunbathe or explore the specially-designed aqua leisure toys and accessories. Guests can enjoy private and exclusive sailing, snorkeling and wind surfing. Inside, an elegant lounge area outfitted with a stylish bar and dedicated al fresco seating areas reveals panoramic ocean views. Rentable custom crafted sea limousines designed for transfers and coastal grand touring along with a pair of beach landers are also part of the ship’s signature marina experience, accessible in most anchor ports.
The onboard yacht experience will be led and staffed by a dedicated Four Seasons Yacht team to bring each voyage’s itinerary and destinations to life. The vessel will have an industry-leading staff-to-guest ratio to deliver an unmatched standard of highly personalized service.
