Sea trials success for Ritz-Carlton’s Ilma

Countdown to launch for second luxury superyacht for The Ritz-Carton Yacht

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection's Ilma at sea during recent sea trials

Ilma, the second luxury superyacht from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, has successfully completed four-days of sea trials, reaching one of the last main construction milestones ahead of its September debut.

Sea trials are a series of comprehensive system tests performed while the yacht is sailing on open waters, signifying an exciting transition from the final stages of assembly. Ilma’s sea trials operated from Saint-Nazaire, France – where the vessel has been under construction by Chantiers de l’Atlantique.

Ilma is now in the countdown to launch and will undergo final preparations before its maiden voyage from Monte Carlo to Rome on 2 September 2024.

When Ilma welcomes guests in three months the vessel promises superior comfort and optimal performance at sea. The successful completion of sea trails ensures that the new yacht delivers at the highest standards, as demonstrated by its capabilities through a series of checks on parameters such as seakeeping, noise, vibration, and wind comfort, guaranteeing exceptional guest experiences.

Measuring 241 metres long and accommodating up to 448 guests across its 224 contemporary suites, Ilma is a sizeable upgrade from fleetmate, Evrima which accommodates a maximum of 298 guests in 198 suites.

Each suite on Ilma will feature floor-to-ceiling windows and a private terrace. She will operate in the Mediterranean and Caribbean.

In the summer of 2025, Ilma will explore the North and Baltic Seas of Northern Europe, offering guests the opportunity to discover dynamic cities like Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Reykjavík, and more, marking the collection’s inaugural itineraries in the region.
