Vard Clinches Deal for New Hapag-Lloyd Cruises Ship

Vard Holdings Limited has secured a new contract for the design and construction of one luxury expedition cruise vessel for German cruise company Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

The new expedition cruise vessel will join Hapag-Lloyd Cruises HANSEATIC series, together with the two vessels that VARD already has under construction for the Germany-based cruise company.

The new luxury expedition cruise vessel will feature 16,000 gross tons, a length of 139 meters and a width of 22 meters.

Delivery of the new vessel is scheduled from Vard Langsten in Norway in the second quarter of 2021. The hull will be built by VARD in Romania.

The vessels are specially designed for cruises in polar regions in the Arctic and Antarctica, as well as operations in warm water destinations such as the Amazon.

“We currently have two vessels under construction to be delivered to Hapag-Lloyd Cruises in 2019, and it is our honour to be awarded with this latest contract for their new luxury expedition cruise vessel,” Roy Reite, CEO and Executive Director of VARD, said.
