Luxury motor yacht Aman at Sea celebrates major milestone – what to expect

Aman at Sea is a yet-to-be-named luxury motor yacht launching in 2027 – and the vessel officially began its journey to completion this week. What will be onboard?

Luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand Aman has announced the commencement of construction for its opulent motor yacht, Aman at Sea – due to sail in three years.

The traditional steel-cutting ceremony took place at the T.Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy this week.

What’s onboard the Aman at Sea yacht?

Aman at Sea, a collaboration with Cruise Saudi, is scheduled to set sail in 2027, promising to redefine luxury sea travel while bringing “the cherished spirit of Aman to the world’s seas and oceans,” the brand said.

Measuring 183 meters (600 feet), the luxury yacht will be the first dual-fuel-powered new build, utilizing marine diesel oil and methanol for propulsion, showcasing Aman Group’s commitment to sustainability while offering a unique aquatic experience.

With just 50 spacious luxury suites, each boasting its own private balcony, the yacht will offer an array of dining options, including an informal all-day restaurant, international cuisine, a relaxed club and lounge and a serene Aman Spa with a Japanese garden.

Additionally, it will feature two helipads and an expansive Beach Club providing direct access to the water.
