Emerald Sakara takes to water

Emerald Cruises' second superyacht on track for August inaugural sailing

Emerald Cruises has floated out its second ocean-going yacht, Emerald Sakara.

Under construction by the Halong Shipbuilding Company in Vietnam, work is on schedule to complete the yacht’s stylish interior before it welcomes guests on board for the eight-day Ionian Sea Adventure from Athens to Rome, departing 5 August 2023.

“Karen and I have overseen the development and construction of Emerald Sakara and having visited the shipyard recently can say the yacht certainly exceeds our expectations,” said Glen Moroney, Chairman and founder of The Scenic Group, Emerald Cruises’ parent company – Karen being Moroney’s wife and Director of Project Design.

“Being able to add to the Emerald Cruises fleet so swiftly is a sign of the positive reception our new yachts have received from guests and our travel partners. Emerald Sakara opens up a whole world of new destinations that are sure to spark even greater demand,” he said.

Emerald Sakara is identical to sister yacht, Emerald Azzurra, which launched in March 2022 and was christened in May last year.

The luxury yachts feature 50 suites and staterooms, the majority with their own private balcony or terrace. Like her sister yacht, Emerald Sakara carries a maximum of 100 guests on each cruise, and creates a new type of exclusive cruising experience, exploring ports and harbours only accessible to small yachts.

On board, Emerald Sakara’s Wellness Centre comes complete with a spa, gym and state-of-the-art infrared sauna for the ultimate indulgence, while its Sky Bar, infinity pool and comfortable public areas are perfect to relax and watch the world go by. The yacht’s marina platform is designed for watersports.

After debuting in August, Emerald Sakara will embark on the European summer season exploring the clear coastal waters of Italy, Greece, Turkey and the Adriatic before spending the European winter in the Caribbean and Central American sunshine. The first scheduled Caribbean sailing is the 17 November 2023 departure on the eight-day Eastern Caribbean and Grenadines itinerary.

Angus Crichton, Director of Sales Marketing and Product for Emerald Cruises urged travel advisors with guests keen to sail with Emerald Cruises in the Mediterranean this year to act quickly.

“There are literally only a handful of suites remaining for the 2023 Mediterranean season and 2024 is selling fast. With Super Earlybird savings from $3,700 per couple, now is the time to book your clients to avoid disappointment,” he said.

Cruises start from just AU$6,595pp on the 8 day French & Italian Rivieras with Corsica, with a $1,370 per couple Early Payment Discount. That sailing departs on 25 May 2024 from Nice to Civitaveccia (Rome).
