Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts will enter the luxury cruise market in late 2025 with the introduction of its first yacht, to be constructed by Fincantieri.
The as-yet-unnamed vessel will have a length of 207m and a beam of 27m and is expected to cost around $400 million.
Cruise industry veteran Larry Pimentel is leading the project, which also includes options for two further ships.
Design work on this 190-passenger yacht has begun at Fincantieri’s Monfalcone facility in association with the renowned Swedish Tilberg Design.
The smallest suites will have a floor area of 54m2, with the largest, the Funnel Suite, providing a massive 892m2 over four levels.
The artist’s impression of the ship shows a spectacularly different-looking vessel, said to be loosely based on the Onassis yacht Christina O.
