Four Seasons Yachts has cut steel on its inaugural vessel at an exclusive steel-cutting ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Ancona, Italy.
The milestone represents the official start of production for the 95-suite vessel, which is expected to be delivered in November 2025.
The ceremony was attended by senior executives from Four Seasons Yachts, luxury yachting company Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd and Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri.
Larry Pimentel, president and chief executive of Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd, the joint owner and operator of Four Seasons Yachts, said: “Today is cause for great celebration, as this moment marks the beginning of the highly anticipated ship building process. We are officially on our way to creating this ‘category of one’ Four Seasons Yacht and this ceremonial start button will forever be remembered as a beloved milestone in this elegant vessel’s history.”
Alejandro Reynal, president and chief executive of Four Seasons, added: “As we eagerly approach the inaugural voyage of Four Seasons Yachts in 2025, I am proud to celebrate this exciting steel cutting milestone with our valued partners at Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings and Fincantieri. Four Seasons Yachts will be another incredible luxury journey for our guests, complementing our Private Jet and Drive experiences and building upon the strength of our portfolio of iconic hotels and resorts worldwide.”
Four Seasons Yachts said the all-suite, residential-style vessel will “set a new standard” for privacy and guest-centric layout.
Standout features include the Funnel Suite’s floor-to-ceiling wraparound curved glass window modules, made up of the largest contiguous piece of glass at sea, and a bespoke onboard transverse marina.
The ship will first offer winter and spring itineraries in the Caribbean, followed by Mediterranean sailings in the summer.
Priority access to reserve yacht voyages is currently being distributed by invitation-only, beginning with loyal Four Seasons guests and key travel partners.
