Seabourn marks construction milestone for Seabourn Venture


Seabourn Venture will begin her inaugural season in Norway

Seabourn Venture, Seabourn’s first purpose-built expedition cruise ship, has moved a step closer to completion now that its hull has been moved to T. Mariotti’s shipyard in Genoa, Italy for final outfitting.

The hull was constructed at T. Mariotti’s San Giorgio di Nogaro shipyard and has been built up to deck nine. The team has already fitted engines, generators and the main engine room equipment. Once complete, it was loaded onto a barge and embarked on the 1,200-nautical-mile trip to Genoa on 30 March.

“We are proud to have reached such an important milestone of the project and are very excited to see finally such a beauty in her hull and superstructures form now visible,” said Marco Ghiglione, managing director for T. Mariotti. “We really thank everyone, with no exceptions, that worked with us to get to this point. Now, we can’t wait to receive Seabourn Venture in Genova for the completion.”

Seabourn Venture is expected to debut in Norway in winter 2022.

“This step in the process will be truly exciting to watch and is a major step forward in the overall construction of the ship,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “I am very proud of everyone involved in the construction of Seabourn Venture and thank our teams for helping us reach this point under the circumstances we have faced over the past year. Our anticipation will certainly keep building in the months ahead prior to delivery.”
