Currently operating 126 hotels and resorts and 53 residential properties in major city centers and resort destinations in 47 countries, the Four Seasons Yachts is the latest addition to the brand’s world-class offerings.

The debut Four Seasons Yacht will create a whole host of incredible experiences through best-in-class design combined with deluxe voyages that explore the Caribbean and Mediterranean. Bliss! Along with luxury yachting company Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd. and venerated Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, the venture brings together an unparalleled group of partners: Nadim Ashi and Philip Levine, entrepreneurs and visionaries of this distinctive yacht experience, paired with Four Seasons luxury hospitality leadership.

Alejandro Reynal, President and CEO, of Four Seasons says, “Four Seasons Yachts represents a key pillar of our future growth and strategic vision, as we look to capitalize on new opportunities and build brand differentiation through immersive luxury experiences. The inaugural Yacht is a manifestation of this vision, offering a world-class Four Seasons experience, at sea and on land, marked by the genuine, personalized service that our guests know and love.”

Setting sail next year, in late 2025, the vessel will be the first in the Four Seasons Yachts fleet, and there’s a signed contract for the construction of the second vessel with Fincantieri to be delivered in late November 2026; notably, the second vessel’s order is worth more than 400 million euros.

Larry Pimentel, President, and CEO, of Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd., Joint Owner and Operator, of Four Seasons Yachts, and responsible for leading the enterprise, shares, “When we launched Four Seasons Yachts in Monaco this time last year, we were humbled by the tremendous response and excitement about the offering, which sparked unprecedented interest in this stunning project.”

Home to luxurious design innovations, the first Four Seasons Yacht features 95 suites with custom design that focuses on removing barriers between guests, the sea, and their surroundings. As such, each suite features an extensive terrace deck that spans 100 sqft for the deluxe suite, to almost 5,000 sqft for the Funnel Suite–set to be the yacht’s most expansive accommodation. With an all-suite, residential-style offering, it offers unparalleled privacy from the vessel’s waterline to the top deck, and the sea-to-sky design. 

Of course, the standout is The Funnel Suite which’ll be set over four levels, offering more than 9,500 sqft of combined indoor/outdoor living space, including a private wading pool and a private spa area. It can be expanded with vertical and horizontal connectivity, allowing guests to have one of the largest continuously connected living spaces at sea. The Funnel Suite’s floor-to-ceiling wraparound curved glass window modules will offer 280-degree panoramic views. It’s also worth noting that it’s made up of the largest contiguous piece of glass at sea, and costs a total of USD 4.5 million, offering a truly one-of-a-kind engineering innovation.

The design firsts don’t stop there as there is a bespoke onboard transverse marina, that features expansive openings across the vessel from port to starboard, offering large platforms and tiered lounging decks on both sides to maximize light and sea views.

Exploring the yacht playgrounds of the Caribbean and Mediterranean, 2025/26 will welcome incredible itineraries throughout winter and spring in the Caribbean. The Yacht will then return to the Mediterranean to cruise infamous and super-chic yachting locales, including the French and Italian Rivieras and the beautiful Adriatic coastline and Greek Isles. The average journey will be seven days, affording back-to-back voyages of 21 days with distinct daily deployments. Four Seasons pre-and-post hotel and overland programs are also in development and will be unveiled in due course to further heighten the experience, and create unforgettable moments.
