Sylvia Earle is vessel number 2 in the INFINITY series of SunStone, and the 4th of Ulstein designed exploration cruise ships under construction at the yard.

Designed with an X-BOW hull, the ship is due to provide the best possible comfort for guests in rough head seas, as well as being very fuel-efficient.
