Norwegian shipbuilder Vard, a subsidiary of Fincantieri, has secured a contract for the design and construction of another passenger ship for Australia’s Coral Expeditions.

As informed, the newbuild will be named Coral Geographer. It will be developed by Vard Design in Norway and delivered in Q4 2020.

The next-generation vessel will be the fifth expedition cruise ship in the company’s fleet.

The new order follows the delivery of the first vessel built by Vard for Coral Expeditions, Coral Adventurer. Handed over to its owner by Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam in April, Coral Adventurer is the first ever expedition cruise vessel built entirely at the shipyard.

The 93.4-meter-long Coral Adventurer has commenced commercial operations in the Asia-Pacific region.

As explained, sister vessels Coral Adventurer and Coral Geographer have been designed to meet the growing demand for Coral Expeditions’ expedition product in the Australian cruise market. Featuring a gross tonnage of 5,599 tons, each of the ships has a capacity for 120 passengers and 48 crew members.
