Monday 3rd February 2020, 12:48pm
THE Scenic Group will introduce a new 100-passenger super yacht to its fleet in Jul 2021, specialising in cruising the waters of the Adriatic Coast, the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea (CW breaking news).
Emerald Azzurra (render pictured) will be the first vessel launched under the new Emerald Yacht Cruises brand, with Scenic’s owner and Chairman Glen Moroney confident the upcoming ship will prove to be an important addition to the range of cruises offered by Emerald Waterways.
“The launch of Emerald Yacht Cruises and the stunning new Emerald Azzurra are a logical extension of the Emerald Cruises portfolio, adding intimate yacht cruising to its Emerald Waterways river cruise offering,” he said.
“This launch also provides a unique opportunity to introduce the Emerald Cruises brand to the Australian market”.
The vessel is certified for passenger ship operations in all oceans except the Polar Seas, and will boast rare access to smaller ports and harbours which can only be reached by small yachts, exploring local towns and villages rarely visited by cruise ships.
Features of the 50-cabin Azzurra include the spacious Reflections Restaurant, balconies for 88% of cabins, and a special marina platform for activities such as paddleboarding and snorkelling.
