The shipyard from Hijos de J.Barreras in Vigo Spain, signed the latest contract for a second luxury vessel for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, that will be the twin of the previous one. The president of the shipyard, Jose García Costas, showed his desire to sign the 3rd and even put a date to lay the keel: before the end of 2019, although he added later that was a wish. 

Garcia Costas said they would begin to sail in the summer of 2021, and insisted that at no time he had sat down to negotiate with Ritz-Carlton CEO, Mr Douglas, his participation in the shipyard.
