Ilma by Ritz-Carlton: Ultimate Elegance Afloat in New Superyacht

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has raised the bar for luxury yachting with the introduction of its newest superyacht, Ilma. Translated to “water” in Maltese, Ilma will do just that, elevate dignity at sea through unparalleled offerings in refined interiors, together with sophisticated design and unmitigated guest experiences.

Ilma, scheduled to sail for the first time from Monte Carlo to Rome on September 2, 2024, further solidifies the brand’s ultra-luxury hospitality principles, which will continue to evolve in the subsequent chapter of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Up to 448 passengers will be able to visit this mammoth 790-foot vessel, each being treated to one of 224 suites, all meticulously designed with a meticulous finish to serve as an oasis of calm and be extremely versatile for travelers.

Designed by world-renowned, London-based AD Associates—with award-winning lighting designer DPA—Ilma’s interiors elegantly combine colors of bright, fresh, neutrals and Walnut, ensuring that the rich palette of textures and fabrications complements the expanse of the beautiful repurposed timbers. Inspired by the myths of Malta and local sea heritage, this design results in a luxurious yet serene sanctuary where indoor and outdoor are indiscernibly connected.

Among the many highlights of Ilma are its intimate communal areas and innovative new venues. The Beach House, a Peruvian and Pan-Latin-inspired eatery conceptualized by Toronto-based Chapi Chapo Design, offers a unique culinary experience with 180-degree ocean views. The expansive pool deck and dynamic open-air space on Deck 10 promise some of the most spectacular views and entertainment at sea.

Guests aboard Ilma will be immersed in a curated art program featuring thought-provoking pieces, enhancing the onboard ambiance. The yacht will also boast a Marina and Marina Terrace with large glass windows and a hydraulic platform, connecting guests directly to the sea. The Ritz-Carlton Spa will expand to include 11 rooms, offering both indoor and outdoor treatments, while fitness enthusiasts can enjoy three distinct studios equipped with state-of-the-art facilities.

Ilma’s itineraries will complement those of Evrima, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s first superyacht, with voyages to coveted Mediterranean and Caribbean destinations. Additionally, Ilma will explore the North and Baltic Seas of Northern Europe, offering culturally immersive getaways. These carefully curated itineraries ensure that guests experience the best of both iconic cities and secluded harbors.

With its refined interiors, innovative spaces, and commitment to unparalleled guest experiences, Ilma by The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection sets a new standard in luxury yachting. For more information and reservations, visit or contact a Reservations Services Agent.
