Seabourn celebrated a major milestone in the building process for its Seabourn Pursuit ship, with the movement of the hull to the shipbuilder  T. Mariotti (shipyard in Genoa) for final outfitting.

Pursuit is Seabourn’s 2nd ultra-luxury expedition ship scheduled to debut in 2023. The hull was transported on a heavy barge, starting on April 6th a 1200 nautical mile trip, and arrived in Genoa on April 15th.

The newbuild has been under construction at the CIMAR shipyard (San Giorgio di Nogaro/near Trieste) and is now equipped with generators, engines, and main equipment of the engine rooms.

Seabourn Pursuit is being built and designed for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards. The vessel will feature a plethora of contemporary hardware/technology that will extend the global deployment and capabilities.

Seabourn Pursuit will offer the same luxury small-ship experience and the addition of world-class equipment that allows the cruise line to offer its widest range of expedition activities led by a 26-person team of scientists/scholars/naturalists. The cruise ship will also provide Seabourn Expedition offerings like Zodiac cruises, scuba diving, snorkeling, hikes, and nature walks, as well as additional curated complimentary trips.
