By Ella Danson

M/Y Ulyssia is set to redefine luxury living at sea and become the world’s most exclusive residential yacht community. This 1,050-ft yacht has been designed by Espen Øino and will be constructed by Meyer Werft. It will offer 132 lavish residences, exceptional amenities and immersive global experiences while making a positive impact through philanthropic initiatives. Ulyssia ‘s mission is to explore the far corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your home. 

Residences on Ulyssia  will range from 1,216 sq ft to 12,196 sq ft, with configurations from one to six bedrooms. Each home will feature reception rooms, open-plan kitchens, uninterrupted sea views and private terraces. Residents will also be able to personalize their spaces by choosing from eight world-class interior designers or even appointing their own design team. While public areas will be designed as extensions of the residents’ homes, with intimate, nature-connected spaces for gathering and relaxation.
