Seabourn has celebrated the keel laying of their first expedition ship Seabourn Venture, during a ceremony at the T. Mariotti shipyard in San Giorgio di Nogaro, Italy.
With Seabourn Venture scheduled to debut in June 2021, the keel-laying ceremony marks a significant milestone in the construction of Seabourn’s first ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship.
“This milestone is always an exciting moment, as it represents another step forward in a new chapter of expedition cruising for Seabourn and our guests,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “I am incredibly proud of the way our fleet has continued to evolve and deliver over more than three decades of the finest cruise experience on the seas. As Seabourn Venture continues to take shape, we look forward to revealing more details and highlights of her progress over the months to come.”
A second Seabourn expedition vessel which is still to be named is scheduled to launch in May 2022.
“T. Mariotti’s commitment and dedication to the construction of the first ultra-luxury expedition vessel for Seabourn is high and for this, I would like to thank all those who have long been working on this ambitious project,” says Marco Ghiglione, managing director of T. Mariotti. “After an intense design phase, this marks a new step forward in the process of building the ship, marking the result of a well-established collaboration with a major partner like Seabourn.”
