Emerald Azzurra is exactly that yacht,” said David Winterton, Global Director of Brand and Marketing at Emerald Cruises. “The level of luxury afforded to each guest, coupled with a diverse sailing program featuring sailings through the Adriatic Coast, the Mediterranean, and the Red Sea for its inaugural season, is truly groundbreaking.”

Angus Crichton, Director of Sales, Marketing & Product, Emerald Cruises said, “The sleek superyacht design of Emerald Azzurra provides a unique experience which has been warmly welcomed by Australians. Earlybird offers are still available on a selection of cabins for the second half of 2022 while 2023 is selling fast.”
