Fincantieri has signed a contract to build the second ultra-luxury cruise ship with Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings, co-owner and operator of Four Seasons Yachts.

The order is valued at over €400 mill and the vessel will be delivered in 2026.

The contract is conditional on obtaining financing for the shipowner as per market practice.

Last year, Fincantieri sealed the first order for a cruise ship for the owner, which will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2025.

Larry Pimentel, President and CEO of Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings (pictured), said: “The signing of the second order with Fincantieri is another milestone in the development of Four Seasons Yachts. Our partnership with Fincantieri and Four Seasons creates a powerful triumvirate of expertise committed to providing a world-class luxury yacht lifestyle experience. I am proud of the team and collaboration behind this amazing project. ”

Alejandro Reynal, President and CEO of Four Seasons, added: “Every type of Four Seasons experience is an unwavering commitment to excellence. In the case of Four Seasons Yachts, we are achieving this by collaborating with exceptional partners, such as Fincantieri and Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings, who share our vision for a one-of-a-kind luxury yachting experience. We are proud to extend our partnership with Fincantieri through this next vessel and look forward to embarking on our first voyage together soon.”

Pierroberto Folgiero, Fincantieri CEO, said: “The confirmation of trust from a prestigious brand like Four Seasons is a great satisfaction for us as well as further proof of the validity of a unique entrepreneurial project that is destined to change the world of cruises for design, technology and sustainability.

“Today’s result also bears witness to the start of the recovery in orders in the sector, at the same time reinforcing Fincantieri’s leadership in the new extra-luxury segment marked by high-end hôtellerie,” he said.
