By the end of 2025, travelers will be able to sail the high seas in a Four Seasons–branded ship kitted out with all manner of creature comforts. The first in a fleet of Four Seasons Yachts over the next five years is currently being designed in the Adriatic port city of Trieste, as part of an order placed with Italian shipbuilding group Fincantieri worth no less than €1.2 billion.

Featuring 95 suites, the first Four Seasons Yacht promises to offer nearly 50 percent more living space per guest than what is currently available on other luxury cruise lines. No expense will be spared on the project: the cost to build the 14-deck ship is estimated at US$4.2 million per suite. Tillberg Design of Sweden is responsible for the exterior and guest suites, while London-based Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has been appointed to craft many of the yacht’s public areas. These design partners will be paired with the creative direction of luxury book publisher Prosper Assouline.

Four Seasons intends to set the standard for personalized service with an industry-leading staff-to-guest ratio. A range of connecting suite combinations will cater to families and groups of friends traveling together, and anyone booked into a suite can expect floor-to-ceiling windows that make the most of the ocean views, large terrace decks, and ceiling heights of more than 2.4 meters. Accommodations will start at an average of 54 square meters encompassing both indoor and outdoor living space; the highest category is set to be an 892-square-meter Funnel Suite spanning four levels, with a private wading pool and its own spa area.

Details of the on-board restaurants, lounges and bar concepts have not been released at this early stage, though an official announcement suggests the lineup may include a sushi bar and a venue serving Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. As for recreational options, the Four Seasons Yacht will have a full-service spa, beauty salon, and wellness programming that covers areas like fitness, health, and nutrition. The aft section will be home to an expansive pool deck, which can also transform into an outdoor movie theater or a space for private events. More of the vessel’s features will be revealed in the months ahead.

A four-level penthouse Funnel Suite will grace the first vessel by Four Seasons Yachts.
