Seabourn Cruises is celebrating another milestone in the building process for its Seabourn Venture ship, with the movement of the hull for final outfitting to the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
The hull, built up to deck 9, moved on a special barge on March 20 and commenced the 1,200 nautical mile voyage to Genoa, Italy on March 30.
Seabourn's Venture has been under construction at the T. Mariotti San Giorgio di Nogaro yard and is already equipped with generators, engines, and the main equipment of the engine rooms.
The inaugural season of Seabourn Venture will be Winter Norway 2022 with the chance to see the Northern Lights.
The 2nd yet-unnamed sistership is slated to be launched later in 2022. Both expedition ships will be built and designed for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and include modern technology and hardware that will extend their global deployment and capabilities. Each vessel will carry an expert expedition team, a pair of custom-built submarines, 24 Zodiacs, and kayaks.
