Shipowner SunStone Ships has taken delivery of its third Infinity-class vessel, Ocean Victory, from China Merchants Heavy Industry in Haimen, China. 

The vessel has now departed Haimen and is on its way to Manilla in the Philippines to pick up crew before a short stop in Papeete, French Polynesia. She will then sail to Ushuaia in Argentina, where she will begin cruising to Antarctica in late November for operator Albatros Expeditions. In the summer season, American Queen Voyages will operate the vessel for Alaskan voyages. 

“We are very pleased with the high quality, design solutions and equipment packages,” said Niels-Erik Lund, CEO of SunStone Ships. “We are looking forward to continuing our relationships with all our partners in the Infinity-class project and we, even considering the Covid-19 world crisis, are moving fast forward at very satisfactory speed, safety and quality level.” 

Infinity-class vessels are 104 metres long, 18 metres wide and have a draft of 5.1 metres. They have capacity for between 130-200 passengers and 85-115 crew members. The vessels are rated as Ice Class 1A, Polar Code 6 and are being built with Safe Return to Port, dynamic positioning and zero-speed stabilising.
