Norway’s shipbuilder Kleven Maritime has entered into an agreement with a compatriot cruise company Hurtigruten Cruises to build up to four new explorer vessels.

Under the contract, the shipbuilder is scheduled to deliver two new vessels, designed for Arctic and Antarctic voyages, in the summer of 2018.

The deal includes an option for another two ships which would join their owner in 2019.

The new ships will be constructed at Kleven Verft shipyard in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

Designed by Rolls-Royce, the new vessels will feature a length of 140 meters and a width of 23 meters.

The expedition-style vessels will have a capacity to carry 600 passengers.

The Hurtigruten cruise company currently operates a fleet of fourteen ships.
