A new, ultra-luxury yacht aimed at very high net worth travelers will soon be launched by Cruise Saudi, a 100pc Public Investment Fund-owned business based in Jeddah.
The company's collaboration with high-end hotel brand Aman will see the launch of Aman at Sea, a 183-meter superyacht featuring 47 spacious suites along with amenities including an Aman-style spa with a Japanese relaxation garden and several international Michelin-quality restaurants.
It will also have an on-board beach club, giving guests access to the water from the stern of the yacht.
Cruise Saudi managing director Fawaz Farooqui unveiled the vessel at the Seatrade Cruise Global event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he revealed that Aman will have a 2:1 crew ratio to guests, placing priority on guest space ratio while creating the biggest suites in the industry.
Aman at Sea is expected to be ready for cruising by 2027.
Cruise Saudi works hand in hand with ministries and regulatory authorities to build the offshore and onshore cruise ecosystem with the aim of positioning Saudi as a premier global cruise destination.
