The suites on the super yacht bring the luxury hotelier’s Residences onto the waters.
The interiors of the 149 suite vessel is designed in partnership with Tillberg Design of Sweden has a “unified flow of design” to amplify the space on exclusive ship.
The contemporary touches onboard are reminiscent of the luxury hotelier’s Residences in Sunny Isles, Miami Beach and Los Angeles.
“The distinct design of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection places us in a new space within the industry where the vessel is a destination in and of itself,” said Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s CEO, Douglas Prothero.
“The design of our inaugural yacht and exceptional suites has been a collaborative effort and one that I am particularly excited about as we were able to envision and build a yacht from the ground up that will deliver an unparalleled guest experience.”
Highlights of the all-balcony suites include a casually elegant atmosphere throughout with floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, double-vanity bathrooms and king beds with luxury linens.
The ships also boast all-inclusive fares, multiple dining venues, a mix of open areas, little escapes and private corners, as well as a watersports platform.
“A yacht evokes the feeling of freedom and the ability to go where you want in the world at your own pace,” said Tillberg Design of Sweden’s owner and executive project director, Fredrik Johansson.
The Azora, the first of the trio, will make her inaugural voyage to the Caribbean in 2020, followed by sailings in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Canada and New England before returning to the Caribbean for the winter.
Most voyages on the Azora will range from seven to ten nights, with overnight calls and curated shore excursions.
