The Netherlands: Works in Full Swing on Two Newbuilds at Shipyard De Hoop

Shipyard De Hoop Lobith has two newbuild River Cruise Vessels under construction at the Lobith yard. One 135 meter (yard number 135) and one 110 meter (yard number 446) which where ordered by Vantage Travel from Boston for the season of 2013.

The both ships are taking shape while on the 110 meter vessels the section blocks are assembled and the fitting out is in full swing on the 135 meter vessel. Vantage’s 135 meter vessels will accommodate 176 passengers and the 110 meter vessel will accommodate 138 passengers, all in plush comfort and surroundings. The new vessels will be powered with two Caterpillar C32 engines in combination with Veth rudder propellers.

Vantage continues to be the leader in river boat innovation and passenger satisfaction. The modernized new fleet is a testament to Vantage’s commitment to meet the American traveler’s growing expectations. Cabins and suites range from 125 square feet to 330 square feet. All cabins will have individually controlled air conditioning, a safe deposit box, increased storage space, two lower, twin beds featuring Eastern Marine Excellence Mattresses which convert to comfortable Queen size beds, flat screen entertainment systems with VOD, luxurious hotel style linens and amenities, and wireless internet access throughout. Suites will feature stacked mini bars, coffee machines, luxurious robes and slippers, and bathtubs. Cabins on the upper decks include French balconies, and floor to ceiling windows allowing sights to be seen up close while sailing.

Shipyard De Hoop has a history of almost 1500 built vessels and more than 3000 designs. Although it is strong in the inland passenger vessels and offshore markets, virtually any ship can be completely engineered and built by De Hoop. Examples of this are the transport vessels “Brion” and “Breuil” built for Airbus, the cable layer “Sea Spider” built for Wagenborg and the semi-submersible diving platform “Amethyst” etc.
