The long-awaited superyacht cruise line from The Ritz-Carlton has finally been launched, more than three years after its first voyage was meant to set sail.
Envisioned to blend the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton resorts with the freedom of a yachting vacation, Evrima, the first of three custom-built yachts from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, delivers highly tailored getaways for travellers seeking to immerse themselves in the culture of each destination.
We are thrilled to introduce The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection and usher in an exciting new chapter for this beloved brand.Chris Gabaldon, Senior Vice President for Luxury Brands, Marriott International
“The Ritz-Carlton has long been rooted in innovation and service excellence, guided by a commitment to be at the forefront of delivering transformative travel experiences. As we continue to evolve our legendary brand, we could not be more excited to give our guests the opportunity to experience The Ritz-Carlton in a new way”, said Chris Gabaldon, Senior Vice President for Luxury Brands, Marriott International.
The specially designed Evrima measures 190-metres and can accommodate up to 298 passengers, the onboard experience reflecting the comfort and service for which the Ritz-Carlton brand is renowned. The yacht offers 149 suites and several two-story loft suites in the style of duplex accommodation, all of which have a private terrace and floor to ceiling windows.
Every element of the luxury yachting experience was considered when designing and creating Evrima and we are excited to deliver unforgettable journeys for both long-time cruisers and those who are new to the industry.Douglas Prothero, Chief Executive Officer for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection
A blind wall allows select suites the option of combining into larger, open-concept spaces allowing for more flexibility when selecting accommodations. All suites feature the luxurious amenities that visitors expect from Ritz-Carlton properties around the world, including a king bed, double vanity bathroom, luxury linens and more.
Evrima guests have access to amenities including spa treatments, a sauna and steam room, water sports from the yacht’s marina while at anchor, an infinity pool, a fitness studio and more. Passengers can also select from a breadth of dining options including locally inspired creations in The Evrima Room, creative interpretations of Southeast Asian Cuisine and a sit-down sushi bar at Talaat Nam, a specialty dining experience in S.E.A., designed by chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg.
Depending on the season, Evrima visits the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America and South America. Destinations along the way range from Spain’s Balearic Islands and the French Riviera to the shores of Aruba and the tropical coastlines of Costa Rica. The size of Evrima, smaller than a usual cruise ship, also allows access to less available ports in destinations such as Mykonos, Saint-Tropez and St. Barts.
One week aboard the Evrima for the Mediterranean itinerary starts at $6,400, while the Caribbean voyages start at $5,100 per person per week. All three vessels in the collection are also available for private charter, although the price details of that are yet to be disclosed.
