World-renowned hospitality brand The Ritz-Carlton now offers guests its luxury resort experience at sea with the debut of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.
The three custom-built superyachts will perfectly blend the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton resorts with the casual freedom of a yachting vacation, bringing guests an innovative, groundbreaking travel experience.

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.”
The first yacht of the collection, Evrima, paved the way for the hospitality brand’s new era of yacht-style cruisingwith a voyage that departed from Barcelona, Spain on October 15, 2022 to Nice, France.
Evrima features 149 suites, offering a selection of larger rooms, two-story loft suites and the option to combine suites for an open-concept space. All rooms feature a private terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as the expected luxurious amenities from a Ritz-Carlton resort, including a king bed, double vanity bathroom, luxury linens and more.
