The Ritz-Carlton yacht collection has been replenished with two new superyachts: Ilma and Luminara

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has announced the expansion of its fleet with the addition of two new superyachts, Ilma and Luminara, which are set to set sail in 2024 and 2025, respectively. These superyachts will be built in conjunction with a world-renowned shipyard, Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Sant-Nazaire, France, with an option for additional vessels. Chantiers de l’Atlantique will carry out all production and development, including improved design and durability features, guided by the highest shipbuilding and marine engineering practices in the ultra- luxury. “We are delighted to be working with Chantiers de l’Atlantique on the development of our second and third superyachts, Ilma and Luminara,” said Douglas Prothero, Managing Director of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “They are a like-minded organization committed to excellence and a tailored quality process and program that will help execute our vision as we wisely expand our portfolio.” Purpose-built superyachts feature the highest space ratios at sea, with 228 suites, each with its own private terrace and will offer a high percentage of larger suites, with two new spacious Superior Suite categories measuring up to 100m² . Both vessels will feature modern craftsmanship and interior finishes envisioned by London-based architect and design firm, AD Associates, and award-winning lighting designer, DPA. Finland-based yacht designer Aivan developed the exterior design of the new builds, drawing inspiration from the sleek aesthetics of private yacht design. The onboard experience will reflect the sublime comfort and legendary customer service for which the iconic Ritz-Carlton brand is known. The new superyachts will include five restaurants, six bars, a wine cellar and signature spaces found on Evrima, such as an expanded marina with a new mezzanine, a Ritz-Carlton spa and a special space for Ritz Kids programming. For special events, groups can enjoy an exclusive cocktail on the enlarged bow of the yacht. “The addition of Ilma and Luminara represents significant growth for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, and we look forward to collaborating with management and Chantiers de l’Atlantique on the creation of these world-class vessels,” said said Tim Grisius, global head of mergers and acquisitions, business development and real estate, Marriott International.The new superyachts will offer itineraries ranging from seven to 10 nights in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean and offer an all-inclusive experience.These superyachts will also be available for private charter.Credits: Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection
