The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection selects V.Ships Leisure as strategic shipmanagement partner

V.Ships Leisure has signed a deal with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection to provide a tailored suite of management services for its three custom-built ultra-luxury yachts.

The partner services will include the sourcing of qualified deck, engine and hotel crew; marine procurement; and compliance support with maritime rules and regulations.

All three yachts will feature 149 suites, each with its own private terrace, and accommodate up to 298 guests in a relaxed, casually elegant atmosphere. The first yacht, which is currently under construction in Vigo, Spain, is expected to begin sailing in 2021.

Per Bjornsen, V.Ships Leisure’s Director, commented:

“We are delighted that the Ritz-Carlton team has selected us to help deliver their ground-breaking project. This bespoke partnership will provide access to our unparalleled depth of resources, breadth of services and cutting-edge technology platform, ShipSure.

“As the first ship manager to create a dedicated cruise company, we are thrilled to be building on our legacy to raise the bar for ultra-luxury cruising.”
