Four Seasons Ocean Residences - Luxury Living Takes to the High Seas

The Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts is getting ready to launch the newest fashion in luxury housing: sumptuous ocean residences aboard a private ship that circumnavigates the globe and spends more than 250 nights a year in unique ports from Antartica to the Amazon. Each year's itinerary will include major world events like the Rio Carnival, The America's Cup, The British Open Championship, the Grand Prix in Monaco and the 2010 London Olympics, and ship residents will enjoy unhurried on-shore excursions coordinated by their onboard concierge.

Encompassing 13 decks, this ocean bound city will have 70,000 square feet (6,503 sq. m.) of incredible public amenities including an 11,000 square foot (3,353.8 sq. m.) Four Seasons Spa and fitness facility. There will also be a European-style promenade with high-end retail stores and boutiques, four restaurants, a wine cellar, gourmet market, business center with secretarial and videoconferencing services theater, golf simulator, driving range and putting greens, walking and jogging track, swimming pool with cabanas and helipad. An onboard marina will take guests from ship to shore, offer scuba expeditions and launch jets skis or sailboats.

The Four Seasons Ocean Residences will include 112 one to four bedroom homes from 800 square feet (74.1 sq. m.) to 7,860 square foot (730.2 sq. m.) penthouse suites. All units will be wholly owned, with ownership based on a 50-year leasehold, and owners will be able to renew or sell the lease at the end of that term. Residences and penthouses will feature private entry halls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spacious living room areas with sea views. Homes will also boast expansive terraces, a full-size gourmet kitchen and private entrance for staff. Prices will begin at $3.8M and range up to $39M for one of the penthouse plans.

In addition to the private residences for sale, 18 guest suites and 11 butler suites will also be available for purchase or rental for the exclusive use of residence owners and their guests. 220 Four Seasons crew members will be on board at all times to provide 5 star service for a maximum of 550 residents. Owners will also receive a $12,000 credit per year for food, beverage and spa services on board ship.
