The 2023-built Seabourn Pursuit cruise ship is the newest vessel in the Seabourn fleet. The boat was delivered and inaugurated in August 2023, being postponed from 2022 (May, then December) and March 2023.

Seabourn Pursuit Wiki

In July 2018, Seabourn signed a letter of intent with "MARIOTTI DAMEN Cruise" (Genoa Italy) for building two polar-class expedition vessels with the following specs:

  • ice-strengthened hull (PC6 ice-class)
  • Lloyd's Polar Class PC6 (Finnish-Swedish ice-class 1A-Super / cruiseferries)
  • length 170 m
  • GT tonnage 23,000 tons
  • 132 balcony cabins
  • capacity 264 passengers plus 120 crew (including 26 expedition crew of experts - scientists, historians, naturalists)
  • 2 mini-submarines (6-guest, by U-Boat Worx), sea kayaks, 24x Zodiacs (RIBs/inflatable motorized boats used for near-shore cruising, landings and tendering)
  • shell doors (at waterline level) allow convenient access to the Zodiacs
  • deliveries: 1st unit/Venture (June 2022), 2nd unit/Pursuit (February 2023)

The boat's total open-deck space is approx 2750 m2 (29,600 ft2). The design is similar to SeaDream's prototype/concept superyacht SeaDream Innovation.

The Seabourn ship's namesake is Azamara Pursuit (2001-built as "R-Eight").

Seabourn new expedition ships (Venture, Pursuit)

The Seabourn ship Venture was initially scheduled for delivery and inauguration in June 2021 (postponed to 2022 April). The sistership (Pursuit) was initially planned for inauguration in 2022 (first May, then December) but was eventually postponed to 2023 (February, March, August).

The construction delays were due to T. Mariotti shipyard closures and supply interruptions (COVID-related).

Pursuit was constructed at T. Mariotti Shipyard near Genoa Italy (in San Giorgio di Nogaro, Italy's Udine Province). The building process started with the steel-cutting ceremony held on September 17, 2020, at San Giorgio di Nogaro shipyard (near Trieste). The special event was attended by Marco Ghiglione (T. Mariotti's Managing Director) and Cyril Tatar (Holland America Group's VP Newbuild Services), as well as (online) by Josh Leibowitz (Seabourn's President).

The ship's name (Seabourn Pursuit) was officially announced on September 27, 2021, by Josh Leibowitz (Seabourn's President). On the same day was also revealed the Inaugural Cruise date (April 4, 2023).

Following the float-out, the unfinished vessel (hull, machinery, superstructure/up to Deck 9 built) was transported via a heavy barge (approx 1930 km / 1200 mi, between April 6-15, 2022) from Trieste to Genoa, for the final outfitting.

  • The shipbuilding yard in San Giorgio di Nogaro is owned by CI.MAR (2007-established) - a joint venture company of Cimolai Group (specializing in engineering and large steel construction works) and T. Mariotti Shipyards (specializing in building of luxury cruise ships and megayachts). CI.MAR's facilities in San Giorgio di Nogaro offer a 50,000+ m2 shipbuilding area equipped with complex lifting-maneuvering systems capable of handling constructions with weights up to 300 tons.
  • In 2008 was founded the holding company Genova Industrie Navali Group as a merger of two Genoa-based shipyards (San Giorgio del Porto, and T. Mariotti).
  • In 2019, Genova Industrie Navali and Fincantieri (the world's largest cruise shipbuilder) signed an agreement Fincantieri to purchase a minority stake in the new holding company, with an option to acquire a minority share in T. Mariotti. The deal allowed Fincantieri to use the company's Genoa port facilities for mega-yacht and medium-size ship construction, outfitting, repairs, conversions, refurbishments, and shipbreaking (dismantling and recycling).

In April 2019, Seabourn contracted ABB Group (Swiss-Swedish corporation specializing in robotics, marine electrical power equipment, and automation technologies) to provide both ships' propulsion systems. The equipment integrates main diesel generators, switchboards, converters, remote control systems, plus two 6-MW Azipod (azimuth propulsion units), bow thruster motors and "ABB Ability 800xA". ABB Ability is a remote diagnostic system using Microsoft Azure (cloud computing). It monitors the ship's electrical systems and is connected 24-7 to ABB's infrastructure ashore (Collaborative Operations Center). The system monitors all linked devices and sends real-time data analytics for maintenance (predictive and planned) and online support. The contract was signed by Rick Meadows (Seabourn's President), Marco Ghiglione (T.Mariotti's Managing Director) and Marcus Hogblom (Director of ABB's Passenger Vessel division).

The financing deal for both Seabourn newbuilds (Venture and Pursuit) was signed in late-June 2019. The money transaction (to Mariotti Group) for the newbuilds was done by Intesa Sanpaolo SpA (Italian banking group), Banca IMI (part of Intesa Sanpaolo) and Mediocredito Italiano SpA (Italian commercial bank).

Seabourn Pursuit was officially delivered on July 31, 2023. The ceremony was attended by Natalya Leahy (Seabourn’s President) and Marco Ghiglione (T. Mariotti's Managing Director).

The registered Shipowner and Manager is SEABOURN CRUISE LINE LTD.

Seabourn Cruise Subs (mini-submersibles by U-Boat Worx)

The ship's two mini-subs are from U-Boat Worx's "Cruise Sub" series designed with depths between 300-1700 m, passenger capacity 5-7-9-11 people, various interior-exterior customization options, great maneuverability in all directions (including in reverse), max speed 3 knots (5,5 kph/3,5 mph).

The submarine design features interior volume 6840 liters (1800 gallons), two transparent acrylic spheres (each with 3 seats / flanking the pilot's station), MANTA Controller (a system that allows passengers to navigate the submarine under the pilot's supervision), MARLIN Controller (wireless remote control system that allows the operator/pilot to steer the minisub from the surface). Passenger seats are with custom-embroidered leather and mounted on two rotating platforms (3 seats on each platform).

The submarine's optional equipment includes a 4K-UHD underwater camera with a video recording system. The recorded footages (photos and videos) are then uploaded and projected on the cruise ship (at Discovery Center's large TV screens). One 6-function robotic/manipulator arm (max lifting capacity 32 kg / 70,5 pounds) is mounted on the minisub's side.

Each minisub also has Bluetooth stereo, champagne chiller, two air-conditioning systems, imaging sonar. The advanced navigation system is based on horizontal thrusters (6x propulsion units/2x+4x) with total power output 38,4 kW.
