Emerald Cruises is building a second superyacht, the Emerald Sakara, which is scheduled to enter service in the first quarter of 2023. 

The 100-passenger Sakara is under construction at Halong Shipbuilding in Vietnam. The same yard is building Emerald’s first superyacht, the Emerald Azzurra, which will commence sailing on Jan. 28 with an eight-day Red Sea itinerary from Aqaba, Jordan.

Like the Azzurra, the Sakara will sail Mediterranean, Adriatic, Red Sea and Black Sea cruises. It will sail a Seychelles itinerary on its maiden cruise. Emerald said it is taking bookings now for the Sakara.

Forty-four of the Emerald Sakara’s 50 cabins will have balconies. The superyacht will have an infinity pool, a spa, a gym and a marina platform equipped with paddleboards and snorkeling gear.

Cruises will include beer, wine and soft drinks at lunch and dinner and a number of excursions.

Sakara is a Sanskrit word meaning “thoughts become things.”
