Successful sea trials

Emerald Azzurra, the first custom-built superyacht by Emerald Cruises, has successfully completed its first sea trials, conducted by British Captain Jonathan Edwards and Marine Operations Manager Robert O’Leary along with more than 98 specialised crew, contractors and shipyard staff on board


Emerald Azzurra will shortly undergo the final touches to its interior and exterior, as well as complete the training of the on board teams before the maiden voyage on 28 January 2022.

Offering a luxury small ship cruising experience, the superyacht will carry just 100 guests in 50 deluxe suites and staterooms, with more than 80 per cent of cabins featuring a balcony.

Glen Moroney, Founder and Chairman, Scenic Group (which includes Emerald Cruises and Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours) commented: “During Emerald Azzurra’s sea trials, all design parameters were exceeded, including speed, noise, vibration and overall comfort and maneuverability whilst sailing. Emerald Azzurra really is a very special superyacht, and will undoubtedly deliver a fantastic experience for our guests.”
