Construction has begun on Aman's luxury motor yacht, Aman at Sea, with a traditional steel cutting ceremony at the T Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy. 

A joint venture with Cruise Saudi, the vessel is intended to set a new standard in luxury sailing while bringing the spirit of Aman to the world’s seas and oceans.

T Mariotti has been appointed to deliver this first-of-its-kind vessel and provide the highest standard of design, mirroring the level of detail experienced at Aman’s hotels.

At 183 metres (600ft), the vessel will be the first dual fuel-powered new-build using marine diesel oil and methanol to run, showcasing Aman Group’s commitment to sustainability while offering a one-of-a-kind experience on the water. 

Featuring just 50 spacious luxury suites with private balconies, the vessel will be home to several restaurants, an Aman Spa, a Japanese garden, two helipads and a beach club, which will offer guests direct access to the water at the stern of the yacht.  

Speaking about the appointment of the contract, Aman Group chairman and CEO Vlad Doronin, said: “The steel cutting signifies a key milestone in the development of Aman at Sea and my strategic evolution of the brand, as we continue to diversify our geographical portfolio on land and at sea to offer exceptional travel experiences that deliver Aman’s core values of privacy, peace, generosity of space and unparalleled service."

The keel laying is expected to take place this summer and the vessel’s official name will be announced in due course.
