Crystal Cruises has revealed its 62-guest super yacht, Crystal Esprit, is to leave the fleet having been sold to Lindblad Expeditions.
In a statement, Crystal Cruises described Crystal Esprit as “a wonderful part of the Crystal fleet offering a boutique yachting experience unmatched in the industry.”
Going on to explain how the pandemic had affected plans for the cruise line, a spokesperson continued:
“However, as we have been evaluating our focus post pandemic, the single, small yacht concept does not fit into future plans for the company as we continue to concentrate on the successful deployment of our Crystal Ocean, River and Expedition fleets, as well as exploring new builds for expansion.”
Crystal Esprit joined the luxury Crystal Cruises fleet in 2015 and became known for its selection of watersports gear, including an onboard submersible craft.
