The SunStone Maritime Group has taken delivery of its sixth Infinity-class vessel, Ocean Albatros, from the CMHI Shipyard in Haimen, China. The vessel will now begin repositioning before going on a year-round charter to Albatros Expeditions.

The five other Infinity-class vessels include Greg Mortimer, Ocean Explorer, Ocean Victory, Sylvia Earle and Ocean Odyssey. All the vessels in the fleet are 104 metres long and 18 metres wide, with a draft of 5.1 metres. They can accommodate between 130 and 200 passengers and 85 to 115 crew members. The vessels feature the X-Bow hull design from Ulstein Design & Solutions, have been designed to Ice Class 1A and Polar Code 6 standards, and are equipped with Safe Return to Port systems, dynamic positioning systems, and zero-speed stabilisers. The vessels also feature a swimming pool, bars and restaurants, lounges, a boutique, a gym, a spa, and a sauna.

The seventh and final Infinity-class vessel will be delivered in 2025.
