Crystal Cruises has launched ultra-luxury yacht Crystal Esprit at Eden Island Marina in Mahé, Victoria, Seychelles.
The small-sized Crystal Esprit has the flexibility to easily access secluded harbours and islands that are not accessible to larger ships.
The 1991-built yacht has been renovated and renamed.
Esprit will sail from The Seychelles to Europe in March to cruise along the Adriatic Coast through October 2016.
The yacht is equipped with a two-seater mini submarine to be used by the passengers during their trips off-board.
Esprit also features a 12-passenger superyacht tender.
The yacht has 62 berths and 31 guest suites. It can accommodate 91 crew members.
The yacht’s interior design is a mix of classic décor with a modern touch. The suites assume a bright neutral shade with a soft and grey hue.
Internet, television, complimentary beverages, and dedicated butler services are among the services offered to the passengers onboard.
The passengers will be guided by an expert to plan their trips ashore or on water.
Announced in November, Crystal is planning to launch Crystal River Cruises in 2016 and 2017, with five luxury river yachts travelling on the Rhine, Seine, Danube, Main, Garonne, and Dordogne Rivers.
The cruise company is also launching luxury air cruises through Crystal Luxury Air. It will include air vacations around the world aboard a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
