Miami-based expedition vessel provider SunStone Ships has inked an agreement with China Merchants Industry Holdings for the construction of a third Infinity-class expedition ship.

To be named Ocean Victory, the newbuild is scheduled for delivery in March 2021.

SunStone has also signed a long-term time charter contract for the Ocean Victory. The vessel will be technically managed by Cruise Management International, Miami.

Ulstein Design and Solution has designed the vessel from a technical point of view and is responsible for the delivery of the technical equipment package, supervising the technical construction of the vessel, according to SunStone.

Once completed, the 200-passenger expedition ship will feature a length of 104.4 meters and a width of 18.4 meters.

The first Infinity-class ship, named the Greg Mortimer, is scheduled for delivery in August 2019 and goes on charter to Aurora Cruises, Australia.

“We are pleased with the rapid adoption of the Infinity-class vessels. It seems our European design & technology, combined with lower overall operating costs ticks all the boxes for the small and expedition-ship market,” Niels-Erik Lund, SunStone’s President & CEO, commented.
