Seabourn Pursuit is being transported 1,200 nautical miles by barge
Seabourn’s second purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, is being transported to the T. Mariotti Shipyard in Genoa, Italy for final outfitting.
The ship’s hull was moved onto a barge to begin the 1,200 nautical mile journey from the Cimar shipyard in San Giorgio di Nogaro, Italy, to Genoa. The ship has already been equipped with engines, generators, and the main equipment of the engine rooms.
“Today marks a major step in the construction of Seabourn Pursuit, and we are looking forward to welcoming her at T. Mariotti shipyard,” said Marco Ghiglione, managing director of T. Mariotti. “Seabourn Pursuit, along with her sister ship, Seabourn Venture, will be an innovative addition to the cruise market, and thank you to everyone involved in turning this important vision into reality.”
Seabourn Pursuit is scheduled to launch in 2023. She has been designed to Polar Class 6 standards and will be equipped to offer a range of expedition activities, including zodiac cruises, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking and trips onboard two custom-built submersibles.
“This is such an exciting milestone as this means we are one step closer to the completion of Seabourn Pursuit,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “I am grateful for everyone who has been working so hard to get to this point, and I look forward to seeing her come more to life in the months ahead as she enters this next phase of the construction process.”
