Four Seasons, the luxury hotel brand, just announced that it’s expanding to the high seas. At a press briefing at the Monaco yacht show, Four Seasons said has formed a new venture, Four Seasons Yachts, starting with a “no expense spared” 679-foot long vessel with 96 luxury suites.

The first of three Four Seasons Yachts, costing $1.16 billion, will be built at Fincantiere, the large Italian yard that specializes in superyachts and commercial vessels. It’s scheduled to be launched in 2025.

“We’re known for creating exceptional experiences,” said Christian Clerc, the president of Four Seasons Resorts and Hotels. “We  plan to expand Four Seasons ever further with an incredible yachting experience.”

The Four Seasons yacht has 14 decks and a beam of 88.6 feet. The suites have floor-to-ceiling windows and access to expansive terrace decks. Each room has a 7’ 9” ceiling. The suites start at 581 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, and top out with the Funnel Suite, which has four levels across 9,601 square feet, including a private wading pool and a spa.

The 96 suites are designed so they can be rearranged into 56 larger suites through a series of modular sliding walls. Entire decks can be converted to private residences for families or groups.

The common areas include 11 restaurants, various lounges and bars, a swimming pool on the aft deck and a beach club. In its announcement, Four Seasons says guests can find “the perfect cappuccino in the lobby, a Mediterranean-inspired lunch, a dinner tasting at the sushi bar, or a glass of Champagne on the breathtaking terrace.” If anyone ever wants to go ashore, four Rivas serve as tenders.

The yacht will cruise to the traditional charter destinations, spending the summer in the Med and the winter in the Caribbean. If you have to ask how much it costs, Clerc says the rates will be similar to those for chartering a 200- to 250-foot megayacht. Read more:
