“We are redefining the statement – ‘We have arrived’,” said Egle. “We want our guests to experience world-class comfort and sophistication even on transit, whether it is upon touchdown or departure, in a city tour or in an expedition across the islands.


Shangriluxe's Yacht, The Celandine

Leading the portfolio is a gentleman’s yacht, the Celandine, built in aluminum and steel by the oldest leisure marine company in the world, Camper & Nicholsons Shipyard, in 1960. It is one of only four yachts similarly designed and it has since received multiple awards for its unique heritage and classic aesthetics. Following a complete refit in 2013, the Celandine was equipped with stylish teak decks, a reconfigured saloon, fresh exterior paint and new engines that have logged less than 500 hours. Its twin 180hp Cummins engines give her a cruising speed of 9 knots and a maximum speed of 14 knots.
