Four Seasons Yachts is inviting its potential customers to move forward with their interest in the ultra-luxury start-up by paying a refundable payment ‘option’ to “secure your access,” LATTE can exclusively reveal.
Slated to launch its first yacht in December 2025, this week Four Seasons Yacht emailed prospective guests encouraging them to secure “priority access” now with a US$10,000 payment. The option, which is effectively a deposit, is refundable for up to 18 months, less a US$300 administration fee.
“We have been anticipating the moment when we can welcome you to the next phase of the Four Seasons Yachts journey,” the email said.
“You are invited to be among the first to join us on our inaugural year of voyages. This new chapter in yachting will bring you an exceptional experience that exudes elegance, joy and personalised service,” Four Seasons Yachts said.
While the new cruise operator has stated time and again it will be “by invitation only”, the broadcast informs wannabe-Four Seasons Yachts’ guests that the “priority access option payment” will be required to hold a place on a sailing which can be assigned to “your first booking”.
“Your option ensures that you will be contacted as a priority when itineraries are available for booking in early 2024,” the company said.
The ‘option’ also enables Four Seasons Yachts’ guests access to an invitaiton-only online community for future guests.
Once the payment is made through a secure site, guests will be able to request a future date and time that they can discuss their sailing preferences with a Four Sesaons Yachts’ Personal Yacht Consultant.
Four Seasons Yacht’s inaugural season voyages are slated for the Caribbean beginning late 2025 and the Mediterranean season starts in late (northern) Spring 2026.
Inaugural rates start from US$3,000 per suite per night.
