Brodosplit Splashes New Polar Class Cruise Vessel

Croatian shipyard Brodosplit launched a new Polar Class 6 expedition cruise ship, constructed for Dutch shipping company Oceanwide Expeditions, on June 9.

Featuring a length of 107.6 metres and a width of 17.6 metres, the new ice-strengthened vessel will be named Hondius when it enters service in 2019.

The vessel will be capable of accommodating 196 passengers and 70 crew members and is expected to welcome its first guests on board in June next year.

The ship has been built to a new financing model for the company’s fleet and for long-term lease to other cruise lines. The company has purchase options at any time, and a purchase obligation after 10 years.
