Construction of the second of two ultra-luxury vessels, the ‘Seabourn Ovation’, has begun at Fincantieri’s Sestri Shipyard.
‘Seabourn Ovation’, is due to join the fleet of Seabourn, a brand of Carnival Corporation, in spring 2018 continuing the company’s expansion which started in 2009.
The sister ship, ‘Seabourn Encore’, is currently under construction in Marghera’s yard and will be delivered by the end of the year.
The ‘Ovation’ will be approximately 41,000 gross tonnes, around 210 metres long, 28 metres wide, being able to reach a cruising speed of 18.6 knots.
It will carry just 600 guests on board, based on double occupancy, featuring spacious suites each with private veranda.
