The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection's Evrima was officially in festivities at Lisbon on Saturday.

Douglas Prothero, CEO of The Yacht Portfolio, and Timothy Grisius, global officer for mergers & acquisitions, business development and real estate for Marriott International, were joined by their children, who served as the yacht's 'godchildren.'

Together they activated the ceremonial Champagne smash.

Follows Evrima's maiden voyage

The naming followed Evrima's maiden voyage Oct. 15, from Barcelona.

Proud moment

'It’s an incredibly proud moment to officially christen Evrima, the first in a series of super-yachts by The Yacht Portfolio that will introduce guests to an entirely new way to travel the world,' Prothero said.

'I extend my gratitude to all involved in the project and am proud to share this collective moment of celebration with the ladies and gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, both shoreside and onboard Evrima, who have made this milestone possible.'
