Fincantieri cruise build
The keel laying ceremony of 'Seabourn Encore', the first of two ultra-luxury cruise ships that Fincantieri will build for Seabourn, brand of Carnival Corporation, has been held at the Marghera shipyard.
The ceremony was attended, among others, by Mr Keith Taylor, executive vice president fleet operations, Holland America Group, while Fincantieri was represented by Antonio Quintano, Marghera’s yard manager.
Seabourn Encore, due to join the Seabourn’s fleet at the end of 2016, will be built according to the standards and technical solutions that helps make the cruise firm one of the most prestigious brands in the ultra-luxury segment. It will also continue the fleet’s modernisation programme that began in 2009.
The all-suite ship will be approximately 41,700 gross tonnes, 210 metres long and 28 metres wide and will be able to reach a cruising speed of 18.6 knots. It will carry up to just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. Each suite will feature a private veranda.
Safety will be one of this ship's major strong points. It will be built using the very latest technologies, whose standards will exceed the requirements of the relevant legislation. Fuel consumption will be significantly reduced by optimising the ship's hydrodynamics.
In total, Fincantieri has built 70 cruise ships since 1990 and another 14 ships are currently being designed or under build in the group's yards.
