Emerald Azzurra completes successful sea trials

Emerald Azzurra – the first custom-built superyacht by Emerald Cruises – has successfully completed its first sea trials.

The sailings took place in Ha Long in Vietnam over 48 hours.

The final touches will be added to the ship, along with the completion of the crew’s training, before the maiden voyage on January 28, 2022.

The 100-passenger Emerald Azzurra will launch with its eight-day Best of the Red Sea itinerary.

Glen Moroney, founder and chairman of Scenic Group – which includes Emerald Cruises and Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours – said: “During Emerald Azzurra’s sea trials, all design parameters were exceeded, including speed, noise, vibration and overall comfort and manoeuvrability while sailing.

“Emerald Azzurra really is a very special superyacht, and will undoubtedly deliver a fantastic experience for our guests.”

Emerald Azzurra is the 10th vessel in the Emerald Cruises fleet – joining nine river cruising Star-Ships. Emerald Cruises’ 10th Star-Ship, Emerald Luna, will join the fleet in spring next year, followed by a second superyacht – Emerald Sakara – in early 2023.
