Damen Shipyards Group has signed its first contract for the construction of a cruise ship for Norway-based SeaDream Yacht Club.
The contract is for the 155-metre mega yacht, that will be deployed on voyages all over the world.
The purpose-built ship will be prepared to operate in various destinations, including polar and tropical. As such, it will boast ice class Polar Code 6 credentials.
“We are delighted to sign this historic contract with which the Damen Shipyards Group enters the cruise market,” Andrea Trevisan, SVP Sales and Marketing Damen Cruise, said.
SeaDream’s vessel will be completely constructed and outfitted, including the interior, at the Mangalia yard by Damen. The construction is scheduled to start in October this year, with a scheduled delivery date of September 2021.
