Members of Quintessentially pay from $18,700 a year to avail of its concierge service and members-only benefits; from 2019 they will also be given exclusive access to Quintessentially One – a new cruise ship that is set to be one of the most exclusive and luxurious to ever sail.
Quintessentially One, the 720-foot yacht will go around the world all year, popping up at select high-profile events. The yacht will not only host exclusive parties, likes of the Monaco Yacht Show and the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix but also have an onboard restaurant and hotel where rooms start at about $2,500 per night. When not attending these high-profile occasions ashore, its occupants will have access to what Quintessentially calls “a cornucopia of delights” on board.
As Quintessentially co-founder Aaron Simpson explains it: “Where the traditional cruise model is to go somewhere, dock and get off, we will dock and people will want to get on.”
The “superyacht” will include 12 residential suites and 112 “lower berth” rooms in a boutique hotel, also available for leaseholds to last for the life of the ship. Owners of those abodes will also be provided with membership of Club One, “an elite club within a club” with benefits including a private restaurant, private bar and complimentary beauty treatments.
Guests onboard the yacht will have access to a library, spa, gym, marina, “beach area,” shopping, and a bar/nightclub. Aaron Simpson, co-founder of Quintessentially, said: “This is a wonderful way to cater and meet the demands of Quintessentially’s global members when they all descend on the same high-profile events which currently don’t have enough supply. The ship is scheduled to make its maiden voyage in 2019.
