Ilma will make her maiden voyage in 2024
The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection marked a significant construction milestone with the successful float-out of its next superyacht, Ilma, at Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.
The celebration brought together senior leadership and shipbuilders to witness Ilma touching water for the first time, signifying the commencement of its next phase of construction.
Now afloat, final-stage construction will focus on completing the interiors and fixtures and fittings for suites, restaurants and public spaces.
Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection executive chairman and CEO Jim Murren said: “We're thrilled to have partnered with the team at Chantiers de l’Atlantique and are excited to enter the next stage of construction and outfitting in anticipation of the yacht’s inaugural journey next year, expanding our fleet and vision within the ultra-luxury space.”
Ilma, meaning “water” in Maltese, will be the second newbuild superyacht from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection after Evrima.
Measuring 790ft, the yacht will feature 224 suites, all with private terraces, and will accommodate up to 448 passengers.
Ilma will visit coveted destinations in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, with select ports of call in Central America and South America, depending on the season.
Reservations for Ilma and Evrima are currently open, and the superyachts are also available for private charter.
