MIAMI, April 19, 2019 – New luxury cruise line The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has chosen to produce a commemorative publication together with custom media and publishing agency HCP Media. Together, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection — which will begin its seven- to ten-night worldwide voyages and curated experiences in February of 2020 — and HCP Media will create a one-of-a-kind book celebrating the launch of the company, the figures behind the scenes, its landmark initial sailing and much more.

“The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is a truly unique brand, offering curated yacht voyages coupled with luxurious amenities and the signature service of The Ritz-Carlton,” said Angela Composto, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “As a result, we sought a publishing partner that encompassed equal dedication to high-quality work, which lead us to select HCP Media to produce our first commemorative publication.”

The coffee-table style book will memorialize the journey of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection from CEO Douglas Prothero’s inspired proposal through the christening ceremony and inaugural sailing of its first custom-built yacht, and every important milestone and key figure in between. Supporters and patrons of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will also have the opportunity to celebrate the company and its achievements within the publication’s sponsorship pages.

“It is an honor to partner with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection to bring its captivating history and bright future to life within the pages of this commemorative publication,” affirmed Marisa Beazel, President and Publisher of HCP Media.
