Luxury yacht and cruise ship designer Tillberg Design of Sweden (TDoS) was responsible for the design for the first Four Seasons yacht project.
The 207 m all-suite yacht will be the first of a fleet planned for the global luxury hospitality brand, which intends to offer land and sea travel experiences distinguished by elevated design, craftsmanship, service and excellence.
This project is a cross-industry collaboration between Four
Seasons, TDoS, luxury travel experts FS YachtCo, lifestyle curator and publisher Prosper Assouline and shipbuilder Fincantieri.
The designed has been created to deliver a new category of luxury lifestyle travel appealing to a segment within the ultra-high net worth community of travellers.
The yacht has been designed with 14 decks fitted with large indoor and outdoor private guest areas that offer nearly 50% more living space per guest than any competitor, the company claimed.
Guests will be accommodated in 95 expansive and multi-level guest suites with adjoining options that will enlarge the suites to villa-like residences. Each customised suite is budgeted at $4.2 mill to build and will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive terraces.
The most spacious suite will span four decks, encompassing 431 sq m and will be fitted with a 462 sq m terrace with a private pool.
Four Seasons will provide its culinary and hospitality expertise to the yacht’s restaurants, lounges and bar concepts, as well as the full-service spa, salon and wellness offerings.
The design will feature a classic canoe-shaped stern, which will house the industry’s largest pool deck of its size on the fifth deck. It will also feature a port-to-starboard transversal ‘dual marina’, which will bring guests to sea level for water activities and transfers to shore via the yacht’s sea limousines.
This dual marina will also be able to be transformed into an exclusive floating dining experience.
“We are delighted to bring our expertise in both yacht and cruise ship design to this unique and exciting project,” said TDoS Partner and Executive Director, Fredrik Johansson.
“It is a collaboration with a brand that understands the expectations and desires of the yachting world and is dedicated to creating a guest experience that is unparalleled.”
“This project is in a class by itself, as it combines the best of ultra-luxury passenger ship construction with yacht design to create a brand new class of ultra-luxury vessels,” added Fincantieri’s Merchant Ships Division General Manager, Luigi Matarazzo.
“We are proud to apply our expertise in engineering, design and style to such a remarkable partnership.”
Currently in the design and planning stage, the first yacht is anticipated to be delivered in late 2025.
